Was the tram to the Buddha built just for that?
What were the females statues? Offerings to Buddha?
What are the stone carvings on the side of the mountain?
The women were getting their hair done and everything? Like a big slumber party! Are they domestic type workers? Very interesting!
Those escalators are very cool! What an amazing adaptation for the locals.
I'm confused, the escalators took you up above the Peak Tram? You had to walk down to the Peak? That is amazing!
To try and answer your questions, the first three I don't know the answer to. I think the cable car was built to take you to the monastry, although I'm not 100% sure.
I think the women are domestic type workers, from all the books I'd read.
Sorry to confuse you - the escalators take you up to the end of development on Hong Kong Island, then we had to walk back down to the tram terminus to catch the tram up to the Peak, which is way above all the development on the island.
Hope that helps.
