We woke up to rain 🌧 So our idea of heading up to The Peak didn’t look like a good idea anymore 😔 I’ve been up there when the weather hasn’t been great, and the view of Victoria Harbour is also just as blah, so I wouldn’t want to repeat that mediocre experience. Sighhh…
But wouldn’t you know it, after about half an hour, the weather actually cleared up! Wth! Not that I’m complaining, hehehe 🤭 And it stayed nice and sunny for the rest of the day. So by the time evening rolled around, we were back on our original idea 👍
Because no one is travelling at the moment, The Peak basically had no tourists. And the current restriction of takeaway only at restaurants after 6pm seemed to have extended to ‘closing’ at 6pm for almost all the shops up at The Peak. So by the time we got there at around 8pm, hardly anything was open 😔 There were others around, but it wasn’t anywhere near as vibrant and buzzing as it usually is, especially in the middle of summer. It’s all quite sad, really.
But with or without the rona, the view never disappoints. In a way, The Peak is now my new Gardens By The Bay. It doesn’t quite bring me the same level of happiness and joy as Gardens, but I think it’s the closest that I will get in HK.
