Sight

Victoria Peak

If you only have time to do one thing in Hong Kong - visit "The Peak"

For definitive Hong Kong panoramas, there's no place quite like Victoria Peak.

Gaze across the water toward Kowloon’s glorious skyline from 552-metres high at Hong Kong's highest point whose view will leave you speechless. Take the funicular tram to the top for the viewing platform where, by day, you'll be treated to spectacular vistas of sparkling skyscrapers and the bustling Victoria harbour below. For something altogether more beautiful, visit at dusk when the sky turns an orange-pink hue before the sun sets to reveal a glittering skyline that shimmers and twinkles in the dark.

Once you've soaked up your surroundings and taken a million photos, there's plenty of shopping opportunities too as well as restaurants and the leisurely Peak Circuit walk offering even more stunning views. If you only do one thing during your trip to Hong Kong, be sure that a visit to Victoria Peak is it.
