Pictures Of Victoria Peak in Hong Kong

Line up to get on the free bus to the peak tram lower station.  This bus is outside the star ferry, next to the city hall.
Ride the tram to the top, actually the peak tram is a funicular not actually a tram.
   
The tram takes you to the Peak Tower -- With a range of shops, restaurants and of course the paid viewing platform.
   
...is another shopping mall with all the facilities you'll need. Called The Peak Galleria this also has a viewing platform, which is free.
   
This historic building can be seen as you leave, it's the original tramways office. The path to the right takes you to the Circular Walk and one of the first views is looking back at the Peak Tower.
   
   
Another view of this historic peak tramways building
   
Equally historic is the peak cafe, in a building which was once the resting shed for sedan chair bearers from the days before the peak tram.
   
Going to the Peak Tower viewing platform to see...
   
.. the view of Victoria Harbour is of course what most visitors want to do.
   
But there are also quiet shaded country paths which you can visit.
   
It's worth doing some more exploring to walk up the hills and find some of the good lookout places; most of which tourists never find so can be quiet deserted.  Allow several hours though and get a good map!

 

FOOD AND DINING

While often visited for the view the visitor should not forget that The Peak encompasses a wide range of dining options, from the casual to the sophisticated.  Within The Peak area are examples of many of Hong Kong's most authentic and distinctive styles, as well as international choices to fit all palates and budgets.
