Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Farewell to a brilliant Hong Kong

We have come to an end in this wonderful people packed place that altho now part of China ,still enjoys much of the westernised freedoms We visited the heights of HK utilizing the Peak Tram that climbs almost vertically to the top .The Peak Tramway (Chinese: 山頂纜車) is a funicular railway in Hong Kong, which carries both tourists and residents to the upper levels of Hong Kong Island. Running from Central district to Victoria Peak via the Mid-Levels, it provides the most direct route and offers good views over the harbour and skyscrapers of Hong Kong.|Ive added the Chinese written section to show the difficult way of writing the Chinese handle so well !! The Peak Tram is owned and operated by the Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels Group We were going to take great pics travelling DOWN the rail BUT the system broke down and we had to Taxi back to base

Tian Tan Buddha, also known as the Big Buddha, is a large bronze statue of a Buddha Amoghasiddhi, completed in 1993, and located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. The statue is located near Po Lin Monastery and symbolises the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and religion. It is a major centre of Buddhism in Hong Kong, and is also a popular tourist attraction
To reach the top we travelled in a 5 km long,very high chairlift up the mountain with fantastic views That ends our Hong Kong adventure all too quickly Next up the flight to Heathrow and London
