The Peak 3-in-1 Combo Package: Peak Tram, Sky Terrace and Madame Tussauds

Got to travel to The Peak, Hong Kong! I remember my first time at The Peak when I was still a kid with parents, it was so cold that night. The peak is one of Hong Kong's popular city attractions. To go there  you have to ride the tram train. The train will climb a mountain in a 45 degree angle. So you really have to stay on your seat or you'll roll over the back of the train. Once on top it has various attractions. It has small shopping areas, restaurants and houses Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. The building on top is called The Peak Tower, it's very unique in shape and you can go up to the Sky Terrace where you would see an amazing 360 degrees view of Hong Kong.

The Peak Tram(with Return) and Sky Terrace Package costs HK$65 per adult and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum costs HK$160. So we took the 3-in-1 combo package offered by Madame Tussauds ticket counter instead. You get passes for all of these attractions with only HK$210, saving us HK$15. But if you're on a budget you can opt not to see Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. They have sample wax sculptures at the entrance so at least you can see a sample of these wonderful arts.

The Peak's Tram opens around 7a.m. and the other attractions open at around 10a.m. but 8a.m. on weekends. This is one of Hong Kong's Popular tourist destinations so if you want to have nice photos I suggest go there early because around 10a.m. the place can be really crowded. But of course Hong Kong is famous for its colorful skyline so it's preferred that you go there at night. Most attractions there closes around 11p.m. so you can go there before going back to your hotel. We decided to go there in the morning because it was on the way to Ocean Park.
