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.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

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/)Recommended for:Local Culture
