    If I only had the time to do one thing in Hong Kong, I would choose take the tram up Victoria Peak again. This is not just a must do in Hong Kong, but THE must do. For the most awe inspiring view of the most dazzling skyline in the world - this is the place. If the experience of taking a 45 degree tram uphill (be sure to grab a seat) and downhill (backwards) a mountain is not enough, one peak of the magnificent view on top of the Victoria Peak is enough to take your breathe away. At night time, you can truly grasp the meaning behind 'the City of Lights'. A mall on top of the mountain with all the fooderies and stores can keep you busy for infinite time at the peak.
    Tickets can be paid with the Octopus Card and be sure to allot plenty of time for the waits!

    Victoria Peak is another touristy spot we stopped by, they have a cute little tram that brings you to pretty much a whole new little city and that is where you take another flight of elevator to a mall of some sort- you can have breakfast and than check out the peak view! It was a foggy-ish day but it was still very nice !

    stunning view from 118th floor of Ritz Carlton HK,could be a bit windy, prepare your warmer, price for drink is still reasonable, worth to visit.

    Rather touristy, but wonderful views if you are lucky. It's clear only about 50 days a year. Take the Victoria Peak tram and expect to spend a few hours on top.

    It takes a little bit of effort to climb up (if you don't want to take the Peak Tram) but it is definitely worth it. The view out over Hong Kong's classic skyline are unforgettable. There are more walking opportunities (with views) once you reach the Peak.

    Victoria Peak, quite possibly a must do in every single travel guides ever written for Hong Kong. As much as I hate to admit, it is not just another overrated tourist spot. The view is stunning and is unlike anything else. Certainly, IFC2 in Central or The One in TST offers stunning skyline view of the city but neither matches the breathtaking panoramic view from the Peak. It is really something every first time visitors should experience.

    Beautiful views of Hong Kong. A must-see for anyone visiting the city. A bit of a shame that it is also a mega mall. The tram is nice and easy but the short hike to the top (about an hour) transports you into a different world and is much more serene than the top.

    Hong Kong is a strange mix of forest and super-skyscraper, and Victoria Peak is a great place to get a view over the whole thing. The ride up, in a little rail car, is fun, and _of course_ there's a mall at the top. But once you get away from this infrastructure, the top of the mountain is still a bit wild-feeling. Trails wind down the mountain, and eventually deposit you back in teh city.

    Victoria Peak is a treasured highlight in Hong Kong. Yes, the lines are long. Yes, the round trip fee is $40 HKD. Having said that, the view of Hong Kong at night makes the trip to Victoria Peak completely worth it.

    One of the best places to enjoy the view of Hong Kong! There is a tram to go up top, but I highly recommend hiking to the top. It's not a hard walk at all. And it's rewarding at the end. :) Hong Kong is green, much more than you thought. Walking on the hiking path, and feel the freshness! Highly recommended.

    Getting off at Central station on the MTR, you will have to walk to the tram station that will take you up to the peak. Especially nice to go up to the peak around 8 pm when the Symphony of Lights is going on at Victoria harbor. You can see the light show from above! Although, it gets really crowded around this time and sometimes take an hour waiting to get on the tram to go up. (English Site Link: http://www.thepeak.com.hk/en/)

    Take the tram up to Victoria Peak for some of the most beautiful and sweeping views of Hong Kong.

    A must for every first-time visitor to Honkers, for splendid views over Hong Kong Island below and across to Kowloon - that is, assuming visibility which is never guaranteed on the area's often misty and overcast days.

    The first time I went here i was completely taken by the view. It is absolutely breathtaking and if you are in Hong Kong I would say that you MUST come here. Your trip wouldn't be complete of you didn't get the Peak experience. Take the tram!

    The primary reason to come up here is to see the magnificent view that the peak offers of the city. There are small shops around offering a variety of goods. The tram that goes to the bottom of the hill is also interesting to take.

    The view is breathless. With all the lights, you can't help but to take lots of pictures of it. Over and over again :)

    Who doesn't like to look out at the view from a mountaintop? Make sure to bring your camera to get some awesome shots while you're there, especially on a sunny day.

    Victoria Peak's view of the Hong Kong skyline has changed a lot since Jennifer Jones waited on it for William Holden in "Love is a many splendored thing" in 1955.
    You can take a double decker bus up to the tram. Then embark on a steep, straight tram ride up to the peak. Once there, you can enjoy the fantastic view of Hong Kong and Kowloon high above the very high skyscrapers. You can also hike around a nature park on the peak. There are little tourist trap shops there too, so you can get your little momentos of your trip.
