The people were very helpful, if we were looking at a map they would ask, can we help. Take plenty of water when walking around because it gets very humid. couldn't help but notice all the scaffolding on buildings under repair was bamboo.

Amazing skyline, worth a visit to Victoria Peak to view. Night or day it is worth visiting the peak. Symphony of lights are fantastic and well worth visiting at 8pm

Weather is balmy and crowds are reduced as out-of-towners wait until Chinese New Year, so this is a great time to enjoy the waterfront and skyline.

We had a fantastic view from our hotel room, this was just higher. Our hotel recommend a bus to get to the top, as the que for the tram were 3 hours long and it was quite late in the day.

I have been to New York and Hong Kong's skyline is just better. Staying next Victoria harbour is your best way to enjoy the views.

I maybe exaggerating it but for me, it is like an Asian New York. An entry way to Asia. Wait for the light show at around 8 pm or 9 pm. It is worth it.

The Hong Kong skyline is by far one of the most iconic in the world with respectable number of skyscrapers. Aside from going to the top of one of the skyscrapers to get a panoramic view there is not much other than catching the light show. Make sure to check the time, but from the Kowloon side accompanied with music... More

The famous Hong Kong skyline is fantastic with the skyscrappers and the many Neon signs. You can see it from Tsim Sha Tsui area around the ferry, Science museum or Ocean terminal. The one big issue in recent years is the pollution/weather. If its cloudy/foggy then you really cannot see much. You can also get a good view if you... More

We went to the Peak to see the skyline, we went there in the daytime. We paid around 40 HKD each. The view was amazing but I felt it could have been free or cheaper. They did give some automated tour guide thing with headphones to justify charging people to stand on the roof. So what else can I say...
