Don't do this. There's absolutely nothing interesting or historical about it. Seriously, don't. Go visit the Wong Tai Sin Temple in Lung Cheung. Don't forget the Yarrow sticks. The Chi Lin Nunnery & Nan Lian Gardens are worth a visit too.
Hell, Ching Chung Koon in Tuen Mun is a better use of your time. Part of Enter the Dragon
was filmed there.
Don't take the Victoria Peak Tram either. Catch the #14 bus near the Central Ferry terminal. It'll cost you significantly less, and you'll see a fair amount of the city.
Tai O village is one of the few remaining fishing villages in Hong Kong, and is worth a visit for the traditional stilt housing. They offer a pink dolphin tour too.
