Floating grocery store and part of our trail
(or: A walk from The Peak to Aberdeen)

Following a ride on Hong Kong's cable-hauled funicular railway, The Peak Tram, most visitors believe they have arrived at The Peak itself.
Though the mansions cost squillions and the views are excellent, they haven't. They are at Victoria Gap. We, however, will actually climb to
the very peak of The Peak – or at least as high as we can before running the risk of getting arrested for trespassing.

From the Peak Tower we follow the road to the wonderful Victoria Peak Gardens and a rather exposed look-out. Next, we join the "Governor’s
Walk" before dropping down past High West with great views over Victoria Harbour, Kowloon, and the West Lamma and Sulphur Channels.
We leave the Hong Kong trail for a while to skirt the Pok Fu Lam Reservoir. Later we will stray onto a briddle path before the fishing harbour of
Aberdeen is spread out before us.

In typical Hong Kong style, we finish the hike by traversing a cemetery before reaching the Tin Hau temple and bustle of Aberdeen. Our walk
officially ends at the bus terminus on Aberdeen Praya Road, but you are welcome to join your guide for lunch at a tiny back street restaurant
which serves the best
dumplings in town – be that fried, steamed or in soup....
