The Peak

Great day in HK ! We had a good night despite the jetlag. As we woke up late, we decided to go to the nearest attraction : the peak. The tram took us on a very steep slope up to a summit where you get a wonderful view and fresh air !
Back to the city center we walked until we found a charming local market where we bought fruits and pastries, some of them we never saw before. A fishmonger gave Alvar a toad tied to a leach … poor weird thing (video). The children loved it as well as the half hour we spent in a small park, playing on the slide and swings (video). We then went back to the hotel, on the Star ferry. I really liked the market. Simple, but real and much more exotic than the hundreds of Prada and Gucci shops.
Tomorrow, we will take a ferry to Lamma Island : fishing villages, seafood restaurants, beaches and a family trail should make our day.
