Victoria Peak – A Hong Kong Must

A trip to Hong Kong isn’t complete without a visit to the iconic vantage point – Victoria Peak. On our last day in Hong Kong we decided to make breakfast in our apartment and then train to Hong Kong’s historic sight which was about a 15 minute walk from the train station. You can visit the peak by a quick tram up the mountain and see why the view point is all the hype. With a gorgeous panoramic view of the skyline and the harbour you really begin to grasp just how large Hong Kong is.

A warning – I recommend going there extremely early because the line can take hours. The trams can only hold so many people, so the line up not only goes out of the building but across the street where the line snakes into rows. Bring some food and water and prepare to be squished and standing if you make it there during the day. An alternative is apparently you can walk up the mountain – health and fitness permitting.

When you arrive to the top you come out in an almost mall-like complex with shops, restaurants with a view, Starbucks, snack stores; there’s even a tiny playground where you can play with your children. After walking around and getting people to take our photos and taking photos in return we decided to get the Christmas special from Starbucks and sit and enjoy the view. I’m pretty sure we got a red velvet cake as well.

The view was worth the long line to get there and I would do it all over again, but being a night owl I would like to visit it at night to see the skyline and harbour lit up. What do you think: day or nighttime for viewing?

For a single ticket it’s HK $71 and a return ticket it’s HK $ 83
The tram hours are 7:00am to 12:00pm

    You got so lucky with weather – wow! When we went it was very cloudy, but still managed to take some amazing photos. You should try heading over to the other side of the city (Mongkok area) and getting some shots of the city from that side too, it’s gorgeous! x

      I know it was surprisingly warm that day the rest of the time it was cloudy and rainy. Oh I’ll have to write Mongkok down and go on the next trip there! We only had time to really explore the island. You can spend weeks exploring that city.
