HK Day 3 – Central
Day 3 was the day we explored Central, their version of KL’s Golden Triangle.
Filled with skyscrapers at every single corner, Central is literally the central hub for business, finance, shopping and entertainment.
Yung Kee Restaurant Roast Goose
We had the most famous roast goose in Hong Kong for lunch at Yung Kee Restaurant.
I personally not a big fan of duck or goose. However, the roast goose was so tender and flavourful no roast duck in Malaysia can compare to it. We ordered half a roast goose which cost us HKD 220 and it was just nice for four of us.
After lunch, we explored the city by foot. When we started to walk around, I found out one thing that I never knew even from all the Hong Kong dramas and movies. To my surprise, the entire city was built on top of slopes.
As if walking by foot is not enough, how bout climbing slopes? I bet fitness centres can’t sell in Hong Kong because everybody had enough of daily exercises already.
However, there’s something called technology to help us human to become more lazy. Introducing the Mid-Levels Escalator.
The Mid-Levels Escalator is a one-way 800 metres outdoor covered escalator system bringing pedestrians up and down between Central and Mid-Levels.
Although it is a tourist attraction but in fact, it is like any other escalators, just outdoor, covered, period.
Next stop, Victoria Peak. When we reached the peak, we realised that the peak is actually accessible by cars and buses. Wasted our time to wait and queue for the Peak Tram.
The Peak Tower houses various restaurants and shops including the famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.
Ticket is needed just to go to the Sky Terrace (observation deck) on top of the Peak Tower. However, a package for Peak Tram, Sky Terrace and the Wax Museum can be purchased at a discounted price at the Lower Peak Terminal.
Madame Tussauds Wax Meseum
The wax museum is definitely a must-visit place.
There are so many wax figures to look at or make funny poses with.
And we braved ourself to visit the haunted mansion which turned out to be the scariest haunted mansion experience I have ever had.
Lan Kwai Fong
After we came down from Victoria Peak, we went straight to Lan Kwai Fong — the clubbin street in Central.
The difference of clubbin in KL and Hong Kong is, in KL, we club indoor while in Hong Kong, they club outdoor, on the street, with 10 policemen standing at every street corner.
Well, it was a long and tiring day. We had been walking up down left right in out front back for the whole day.
Although we had just scratched the surface of what the city has to offer, it was quite some experience already.
