Victoria Peak, locally known as The Peak is one of Hong Kong’s popular tourist destinations as it promises a spectacular view of the city from about 554 meters.
Visitors hunting for a difference experience of the city should visit Victoria Peak after a good night’s rest at a Hong Kong boutique hotel. Located amid Causeway Bay and Wan Chai with easy access to the subway stations and MTW networks, visitors can choose the Cosmo Hotels Hong Kong for this experience.
The Peak Tram takes you to the Peak in approximately 8 minutes and has been in operation for over 100 years, making it one of the world’s oldest and most famous funicular railways. Visitors will be greeted by a seven storied building in the shape of a ship known as the Peak Tower which signifies the end of your Tram journey and the beginning of your adventure at the Peak!
The Peak Tower offers magnificent views of the city on different levels; particularly from the Sky Terrace 428, with a bird’s eye view of Victoria Harbour, while simultaneously providing its guests with great dining and shopping options. For a different viewing point, the roof of the Peak Galleria located opposite the Peak Tower is a great location for those budding and experienced photographers! The Peak Galleria also has a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, bookshops and supermarkets to cater to all their guests. If you still haven’t quite managed to capture the true beauty of the skyline in a picture, Lions Point View Pavilion might be the next best option.
The Peak Tram Historical Gallery is a gallery dedicated to the history and establishment of the Peak Tram. The Gallery captures 120 years of the Peak Tram’s journey in Hong Kong.
To end the visit, a slow stroll along the pathway that envelops the Peak provides a haven of serene landscapes and scenic pathways decorated by lush tropical forests with a bustling bird population. The Peak suggests following the walking trails to further explore Hong Kong’s natural treasures.
