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 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.
Million dollar breathtaking view. Bring along a wind breaker or sweater if you cannot withstand cold wind. Honestly, it's OK to skip the tower view and save HKD50 if you're on a tight budget. The nearby viewing areas just a short walk away is equally good and probably less crowded. Not sure if this is the norm, but I chanced upon a marriage proposal session during my visit.
Went up at 11pm on the tram and took the last one back down at midnight. Amazing being up there with barely any other people around. Chilly though, even if the city is humid, so take something warm to wear.
Well worth a visit. Don't try to hike to this pin location, however. The actual peak is fenced off around the radio towers and the pathway there only has views not of the city. And it's steep. The Garden is also not facing the city. For a great view instead take the nearly flat, paved, shaded walking path to the Lugard Rd Lookout pin. Foliage blocks most of the views along the path, but towards the pin it is spectacular.
