— Hong Kong's Top Tourist Destination
The Peak is Hong Kong's top tourist attraction — when you get there you'll know why! Victoria Peak is the highest point within Hong Kong and its world-famous views of Victoria Harbor and Kowloon Peninsula are not-to-be-missed, especially on a sunny clear day and at night — it's a great place for picture-taking.

Peak Tower Sky Terrace
Enjoy spectacular 360° panoramic views from the Sky Terrace at the Peak Tower atop Victoria Peak — it's the highest viewing deck in Hong Kong. The tower also houses restaurants, fun attractions and specialty shops. During our visit we bought a lovely oil painting (in varying shades of blues) of a Chinese junk sailing by a quaint fishing village — it brings back happy memories every time we look at it.
Peak Tower and Sky Terrace Hours
Riding the Peak Tram is the quickest way to get to Victoria Peak — the eight-minute ride is quite steep as it climbs about 1,200 feet. The scenic ride offers breathtaking harbor views along the way and at the top of The Peak. Trams depart every 10-15 minutes from 7am-12 midnight.
