Hong Kong's Victoria Peak (The Peak) is the first place you should go to.

Firstly, it provides you with a great overview of Hong Kong and lets you experience the city's density.
Secondly, the view is simply breathtaking and something you won't forget.
Thirdly, it's not only the view but also the facilities like Madame Tussaud's and the shopping center 'Peak Galleria' that are worth a visit.

Insider Tip 1:
Try the walk around the Peak (Lugard Road; ~ 90 mins) which provides you with a bit of nature and stunning views to the West of Hong Kong Island, away from all the tourists crowding around the Peak Tower.

Insider Tip 2:
While the walk around the Peak is rather easy, you might also wanna try the steep walk (~ 20 mins) up Mt. Austin Road to Victoria Peak Garden. It's worth it ...!

Address: Hongkong Island
Directions: Four ways to get there:
1. The Peak Tram (from Central)
2. Citybus No. 15 (from Central Exchange Square)
3. Minibus No.1 (from Central)
4. Steep walk alongside the Peak Tram (only for tough ones)
