Going up to Victoria Peak through a peak tram ride was really breathtaking. It's good it was night time. I seem to have a phobia with heights, so it wasn't too bad not seeing the heights during the night :)

Victoria peak at night is really awesome and colorful. The magnificent scenery reflects the whole city of HK. Atop, you can experience the magic while feasting your eyes with the unforgettable views of the city and the harbour. This was actually the highlight of our day tour.

Next stop was at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Replicas of famous people, including many Holywood actors and actresses were made of waxes...almost look like real ones. We got bunch of photos in here since cameras are allowed and you can take photos as many as you want.

The tour didn't end without giving us into the temptation of shopping. We spent the rest of the evening at the best local nigh market for our Nigh Market Shopping. Prices are cheap, and it's like highly comparable to "Baclaran" or "Divisoria" in the Philippines :)

We didn't stay long that night, since the market was crowded. We did chose to stay away from the crowd and got some stuffs in one of the stores just beside the streets which we felt it was much safer to do. Then we went back to our hotel after the shopping.
