Victoria Peak, also known as "The Peak", provides panoramic views of the city, which have to be among the most spectacular in the world, especially at night. A walk around the Peak reveals further scenic vistas over the greener western parts of Hong Kong Island, and the viewing platforms on top of the Peak Tower and Peak Galleria are a must for anyone with a camera. A steep tram ride takes visitors to the top, where the spectacular vistas are equally gorgeous during the day or night.
Go late in the afternoon to see the day time view of the harbor. Then have dinner at one of several restaurants (try to get a window seat...you might have to make reservations) and watch the city lights come on for another spectacular harbor view.
If you're in Hong Kong, you absolutely can't miss the opportunity to go up to Victoria Peak at night to take in the view of the Victoria Harbor. You'll see the harbor, boats, buildings. It must be the most romantic city view in the world.
To get there, we took the Hillside Escalator (an interesting attraction in itself) through the expatriate neighborhoods and then took Bus 12 to the Peak Tram.
Such beautiful scenery! I would recommend going at night, because you'd get to see a view of Hong Kong that is totally different. If I ever go back to Hong Kong again, I will definitely be going back to Victoria Peak.
The view is spectacular! One of our favorite parts from the trip! It was easy to get to. Recommended by the Ritz-Carlton concierge, we took a cab up and the trolley down. The cab ride up offers an interesting view at a residential area, and the trolley down is a fun ride with a great view.
Go in the late afternoon to see the view in the daytime. Then have dinner and watch the night fall and the city lights come up across the harbor. The daytime view and nighttime view are spectacular but different so see both. When you have dinner, you should request a window seat for the best view but you may need reservations a week in advance for some of the restaurants at the Peak.
first day, the sun was shinning down... way too hot. Guess i wasnt the only one thinking going up the peak, cause the queue for the tram was mega long weaving like a snake. I did cheat i caught the bus from the star ferry, i beleive i could have walked in in 5 mins. i dediced to try walking it, boy how wrong was i. i got to the second tram stop and was exausted, and beleive me i consider myself fit and plenty of stamina. well the second day i attempted it again, but i was told i could catch a 16 seater bus up with was less used by tourist and cheaper than the tram, but id get the same view if i can down, so i thought why not. Great view, and great little walks.
