About Victoria Peak, Hong Kong
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!
Absolute must for any stay in Hong Kong. The best way is to take the tram. It is worthwhile to be there early, because otherwise you would like to wait two hours in line. Alternative is the taxi. The ride then lasts a little longer and is not so adventurous. Forget about the viewing deck. There are also enough spots where you have almost the same view only that it costs nothing here.
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.
