Victoria Peak - Review
Hear ye, hear ye, all bird lovers. The Victoria Peak in Hong Kong is an avian heaven, so bring your cameras and catch those Black Kites and butterflies in action. Not a bird watcher? Watch the city instead – coin operated telescopes on top of the peak let you sweep over the city and harbour. Traipse around the Victoria Peak Garden, and don’t try to sneak into the actual summit, which is a radio telecommunications facility and is closed to the public.
Famous and historic, the place is well connected by various modes of transport, but you’re advised to take the almost scarily steep Peak Tram was really good view to the top. You might even hang around for a moderately impressive light show in the evening.

We visited this attraction late on a Sunday afternoon. It took about 90 minutes to queue for the tram up. Thank goodness it wasn’t in the heat of the day. We enjoyed the tram ride and it was very steep. When we got to the tram station there was a few floors of tourist attractions/shops and activities before we got to the viewing platform. The lights of HK Island were below us and it was a dazzling sight. There was a 25 minute queue for the tram down.
Absolutely amazing. A must see if in or near Hong Kong. Best to see night and day, but the night view blew me away. I spent 2.5 years in Asia, & the night I went up the peak & saw greater Hong Kong from this vantage point is almost otherworldly. In other words, one of the most amazing things I saw. Top 3, absolutely - a night I most certainly will never forget! FYI, if you fly into Hong Kong's airport, night or day - pay attention - the high rise structures and buildings standing strong & jutting out of mountains & various islands is also quite amazing to see, as well. Flying into Hong Kong - let's just say I was extremely captivated from the get-go. Be prepared for crazy humidity and heat, especially in summer. However, it is so worth it!! In closing, Hong Kong is absolutely a unique City-State/S.A.R./Province (depending on whom you ask) - a totally different feel than the Mainland P.R.C. - as what is so magnificent about Hong Kong - is the perfect amalgam of British & Chinese culture (as in when East meets West - and I found that to be categorically BEST!!).
Breathtaking views of Hong Kong. If you're able bodied and have the legs to take you, go up one of the paths as apposed to the tram or getting a taxi. You'll be so pleased you did as I feel making this effort makes the experience that much more special. Plus nice coffee at the top always tastes better when you've worked for it!
I'm sure the cable car is nice but the lines were way too long in the heat. Share/take a cab with some other people and get to the top so much faster and easier. Don't waste an hour of your day in line. Great views from the cheap cab ride too! You can always cab it down as well or take the cable car one way. Great views from the top. Nice walking trails. Lots in the little shopping mall. A definite must see in Hong Kong.
You can go there by bus for a fraction of what it's going to cost you with the tram. The view can be nice from there, but weather is difficult to predict. Good luck! (it's definitely a place to see either way, maybe nicer at night)
