  the entrance to the grand Victoria Peak, HK
by AusPinay

A trip to Hongkong is not complete without a visit to Victoria Peak.

Victoria Peak is a good location to view HK's magnificent night scene. Being 554 meters (about 1,817.6 feet) above sea level, The Peak (what it's called now) is the highest point within Hong Kong and occupies the western part of the island. Marvel at magnificent architectural structures around the island through this place!

To reach this very high part of HK,tourists can take the Peak Tram, a pleasant ride ascending the mountain. The tram has been in operation for over one hundred years, and to date, no accidents have ever occurred. Your journey aboard the tram will take eight minutes and upon reaching the summit you will see a seven storied building in the shape of a ship.

This is the Peak Tower in which there are several attractions namely, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium ( I got a separate page for this), and the Peak Explorer Motion Simulator.

As always, there are restaurants, shops for souvenirs and usual amenities.

Address: Lugard Road, Tjhe Peak, HK
Directions: You won't miss it, it is at the highest point in HK Island!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
