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.

Victoria Peak Trips
I was lucky, when I was there because I had really nice weather. One major problem is the mass of tourist like everywhere in China. If you come with the ferry than take the bus ride (ca. 10 HKD) up to the peak. Its cheaper and more fun, but the way back is very busy on tram and bus so take some time with you. If you like to shoot some nice pictures, than arrive a little bit earlier! Make sure to get a spot on the right side for a better view and to avoid the crowds. Enjoy your evening!
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 if your day in line.m Greats from the cheap cab ride too! You can always cab it down as well or take the cache carry one way. Great views from the top. Nice walking trails. Lots in the little shopping mall. A definite must see in Hong Kong.
Great place to go to. But pick your day wisely. If there's no fog rolling in or no heavy Marine layer, this is a fantastic place with a great view of Hong Kong. If the fog Marine layer gets heavy as it often does, there's really not much to seeing you might as well go home. I've actually not had the best of luck in several visits trying to get up there with a great View. But the one time I got a partial grapeview it was awesome.
Great place to unwind for any occasion. Plenty of restaurants around, shops and specialty shops with nice gimmicks for locals and tourists alike. Great starting point to walk around the peak, the shortest way is less one hour. End station of the Peak Tram. Otherwise plenty of alternative transportation on hand including payable car park. The Peak has to be part of your bucket list. Recommended.
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. 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. P.S. - Be prepared for crazy humidity and heat, especially in summer. However, it is SOOO worth it!!!!
