  • Ko Hong Kong S.A.R., spot, especially at night is recommended. 9 you can see the traditional, very popular. Because the weather was bad when the fog is suspect.

  • On the 30.12.17 from there up enjoyed a super great view on Hong Kong. In the morning, the waiting time for the railway are still acceptable — one must treat the drive with the car as well as the views.

  • We took the tram up, which is fast but also can be very very busy with tourists. Go early or later to avoid the crowds. A very cheap attraction with a gazillion dollar view at the top. Sky lounge is worth it to let the wind blow through your hair while enjoying the view. If you're craving an even higher view, follow Mt. Austin Rd up the mountain and take the steep path to the right when you can. Take the next right when the footpath forks, and follow for about 100m and climb the stairs and you'll have a pretty secluded place to yourself with a wonderful view, right near the radio towers!
  • Definitely visit for the view! I'm only taking off one star because the place is really touristic and very busy when I went. Irony being I'm a tourist of course but would have been nice with less shops perhaps. Good visit anyhow.
  • Did a sunrise hike to the top of Victoria Peak. It only took about half an hour or so, but well worth it! It was really fun to see the fog start to dissipate and watch the city slowly get illuminated by the sun and wake up. I highly recommend it!
  • Fear not If you decide to undertake the arduous road to the top of the peak. It’s quiet a hike but you can walk at your own pace. In any event it shouldn’t take more than 45 to 60 minutes. Most portions of the road have sidewalks until the last stretch where you may want to be extra careful and keep an eye for incoming traffic. Then the road will narrow and three will be stairs all the way to the top. The entire hike was fun for me and I did it well after the sunset under a full moon. There was very little of the road I could not see. Once at the top the view is amazing, specially at night time. Bring some snacks, something to drink and enjoy the cool view and the solitude of the peak.
  • Absolutely loved going up the peak and seeing the entire view of Hong Kong, from up top! The view is beautiful! I took a bus ride from Central Hong Kong to the peak, going up the peak is exciting experience, the roads that lead up to the peak are amazingly neat!

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.
