Victoria peak I think should be a must see if you are visiting Hong Kong and you appreciate gorgeous views. Although it is weather dependent and will always be best in clear conditions it is still interesting to view in any weather. There are other things to do there, eg. Madame Tausauds. As well as restaurants and other shops. Also... More

Victoria Peak is a place that every tourist MUST visit. Walking around the peak during the day, you will have a spectacular view of HK. If the weather is good, you will be able to see the breathless night view of the whole Victoria harbour. Finally, the Tram can take you quickly back to Central.

A must see and experience for visitors is the Peak tram to see the Peal. Although the line can get very long for the Peak Tram, the experience itself is worth braving the queues. Avoiding the long queues during weekend is a good idea, and of course going early in the morning is also suggested. But once you experience the... More

Amazing view from the top!!!!! If you don't want to wait for the tram (that takes like an hour?) you can easily get there by bus (from the city center). Absolute must see In HK!

view from the peak is amazing, and a must do when in HK, to get a good idea of HK skyline and surrounding. Day and night view is different, and if possible, experience them both.

Must go attraction in HK. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowd as thr tram can get quite packed in the afternoon. Its a nice tram ride and it is a very steep hill upwards on the tram. Very good view on the top. There is no need to pay to go to the observatory tower as the... More

the tram ride up to the peak is a bit of old-style fun, but once you get there you're funneled through a tacky souvenir market before you can actually get to the viewing areas. the whole Peak complex seems to be a huge shopping mall so it's obvious they want you to spend lots of tourist money while they have...

Take a hike up the peak early morning if you are up for it. It takes 30-45mins from old peak road. Otherwise, take the Tram up from garden road for a touristy experience (it's like the experience of sitting in the Tram in San Francisco). Take the mini bus down to central to enjoy dim sum at City Hall. If... More

The Peak is popular spot for tourists and local people. In days of good weather, you will see the most beautiful sunset and night scene. There are shops and restaurants in various prices. You can simply walk around the peak in less than an hour to see 360 degree of Hong Kong Island. Or you can have a leisure walk... More

beautiful on a good day or night. If it is smoggy - don't bother. Eat at Cafe Deco and be sure to book a table by the window.
