Place: Hong Kong China - The Peak

Month Viewed: 14 | Total Viewed: 2470 |

Victoria Peak or "The Peak" as it is known, rises above the city of Hong Kong, and offers tremendous views of the city.  It is probably most beautiful at night, when the lights of the city are on display.  It's a great place to get some good photos, but other than that, I didn't really find much of anything else to do there at the Peak.  From the Peak you are above and behind the IFC building and you can see some of the other sky scrapers but other buildings such as apartment complexes take up the rest of the view. 

You should watch the weather before you go, to make sure the view will be uninterrupted.

The night scene is sensational, as Hong Kong offers one of the world's most spectacular skylines.

Highly Recommended !! 




Photo tip for the Peak Terrace: There is an outside railing and another level right above it. If the photographer in your group stands at the top of the steps and shoots down at you next to the railing, it’s a much better angle to see you above the city skyline! I  took the tram up (one way) and paid to visit the Peak Terrace as well - $37HK per person. It was worth it!  Since you can buy a one way ticket, we did that and then took the local bus (#15C) down $9.80HK.  You can get good views and a little thrill.   But if you get motion sickness, don't do this - the stop and go and winding roads can be a bit too much.
