The view from the Peak is incredible, especially at night, when the neon lights lit up the city. Here, you can see one of the world's busiest harbour and all the tallest skyscrapers in Hong Kong. Due to pollution in the Pearl River delta region, the harbour maybe smoggy sometimes.

Perhaps the most popular way for tourists to get to the hilltop is by the famous Peak Tram located in Central, near Hong Kong Park. It's a short but very scenic ride along the side of a steep hill. I actually like going up by bus though, as the bus takes you through narrow winding road, passing through some wealthy neighbourhoods. It is really amazing to see all the buildings gradually go below you as the bus goes higher up.

There are also restaurants, shops and even a wax museum of famous HK ppl at the top. For more info about the Peak, visit the website below.

Tip: go up to the Peak before the sunset. So that you can view the daylight view and the night view of the harbour.

Address: Hongkong Island
Directions: 1. Take the Peak Tram just a short walk up the hill from Central or Hong Kong Park
2. Take bus #15 from Central via Wan Chai to the top, get off at the bus terminal at the last stop.
