  • 4th highest peak in Hong Kong. Beautiful view.
  • Nice view to check sunset
  • 上落山路,不算太困難,閒日去比較好些,景觀一流,拍攝日落最佳之選
  • 離市區只有一步之遙, 無敵海景, 又不像太平山那邊那麼人多。 拍日落的好地方, 但級數不少。
  • 香港南區,西九全景

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
