Victoria Peak – The best view in Hong Kong

If you wake up in Hong Kong and the sun is shining and the sky is blue, head for the hills. Victoria Peak in particular.

The peak gives you the best view of Hong Kong, and it is worth going up the peak for the Peak Tram alone, one of the most famous tramways in the world.

The tramway is a funicular railway that runs from Central district to Victoria Peak, with some stops along the way.

At the top the tram terminates at the Peak Tower, an observation deck/shopping centre/tourist trap, which you have to pay extra to enter. You can walk around the paths at the peak and see the same view for free.

To save money (and queueing up again), buy a one-way ticket and walk back down via the park walk.

  1. Ohh I want to go there! Looks incredibly beautiful… and I love the tips for not having to queue and saving money.. thank you!

  2. Those are indeed gorgeous views, James. Wow.

  3. I love the Peak. I have always taken the double decker bus to the top. Next time I’ll have to try the tram. Great shots.

  4. @Nancie next time I might take the bus (no doubt much cheaper), but worth getting the tram at least once for the ride.

  5. Since the line was so long for the tram, I took the bus. It took a long time and was a winding ride. I should have waited for the tram. How long does it take to walk down?

  6. Beautiful photo, and thanks for the tip! 🙂
