  • The top of the peak will leave you breathless with it's spectacular view of Hong Kong. If you have time you should visit once in the daytime and then once at night. The view of Hong Kong is priceless.  more »
  • I have been to the Peak twice, once at day, and once at nighttime. We hiked up during the day, which was quite long, but still fun, and at night, we took a taxi the way there, then the tram back...  more »
  • Going to the peak never gets old. The 10 minutes or less ride to the top in the tram is superb and and the view when you're at the top is even better. Had a few friends go and see the sunset and...  more »

  • I love Victoria Peak and would give it 5 stars except the smog makes it harder to take good pictures. I have been up here a few times and for sure it is a nice break from the crowded urban city experience. The best time of year is in the cooler months, as Hong Kong even on the Peak can be pretty brutal hot.
  • Just an amazing view. A must do if you head to Hong Kong! Doesn’t cost you anything! Takes about 50 minutes to walk up, if you don’t feel like doing that then catch the tram. Either way the view is not to be missed.
  • Very relaxing, maybe because of the weather. It's winter time the sun was up and shinning, but breeze was very cuddly. 😍😘
  • Victoria Peak views are amazing if there is only one thing you do when you get here you must go and have a look. There are shops and restaurants there as well a nice place to take the family
  • Peak of the city, peak view, peak feeling! Weather is cool during November. You won't feel hot. The best time is morning visit. As you can take unobstructed pictures @ top of the building.
