We went up on the train which in itself was fun. The views are awesome! Initially there was a haze over the water but we still got some nice photos but then we were so lucky as the sun came out and burnt the haze off and it was simply awesome! Spectacular views of the skyling of HK Island and... More

Definitely one of the best vantage points to see Hong Kong from. It's a great experience in general, taking the tram up the super steep slope. Makes for some truely great photos at the top as well.

If you go to Hongkong, Victoria Peak is the place you should visit. When you're up there? The view down belong is stunning! I really like this place. and when you get hungry, There are restaurants where you can eat and souvenir shops.

The length of Lugard Road is 2,800M and the road is flat and easy walking. The most exciting part is to get the bird's eyes view over Victoria Harbour and Kowloon Peninsular. Travel to the peak by bus #15 from Central or Peak Tram and the minibus from Admiralty.

For travelers who want the best view of the city, it's the place to go. Yes, they parade you thru dozens of shops and the site is incredibly commercialized...but if you don't want to buy anything, just keep walking. We skipped the tram as we had read about some of the long wait times....so taking a taxi to the top... More

Make the walk to the Governors Summer Lodge, sadly burnt down by the Japanese in 1941, but the surviving garden is fascinating and views from garden stunning. So tranquil away from commercialism at Peak.

Choose your day. Pointless to go when cloudy since all that matters is the view. There's a 360 of Hong Kong, wireless internet that doesn't work, several restaurants and a queue - to get up or to get down with the tram. Sporty ones can do it on foot. Good luck!

If you like some exercise and get good views of Hong Kong on a clear day, take a trip up to Victoria Peak and do the circular walk there. The MTR though crowded is a convenient way to travel around HK and mingle with the local people and mainland visitors. Get off at Admiralty Station and take the No. 15... More

Beautiful views. Get a taxi to take you to the very top, past the main mall area. After you walk around for a short distance and take in the views, (it's super quiet up there), walk down about 1 1/2 miles to the mall, Peak Galleria. Do some shopping, eat lunch and go to the Trick Eye Museum. Then take... More

Really good view of HK at the top. A little packed once at the top and seemed a little too touristy for my liking. I really, really enjoyed the hike up and down. Not many people, very quiet yet easy to do - just a little incline at some spots. All paved. Don't waste your money for the tram unless... More
