The Peak in Hong Kong is the Number one tourist destination for most tourists when they visit. The views are spectacular and the ride in the tram is always a fun experience!
You access the Peak by the Tram.
The first time we visited Hong Kong we visited the Peak at night. Now most days were cloudy, rainy and a little foggy, but at night the fog was gone and we had a great view and dinner at The Peak Lookout with our friend Eric.
Our second visit to Hong Kong it was a beautiful (although quite hot) day and the first place I wanted to go for the view and photos was up here.
Our view on a really hot day in July.
Victoria Peak is ranked #6 and 4 1/2 stars for attractions on Tripadvisor, with over 300 reviews.
As with most other world famous attractions, when the tourists come, they build shopping and attractions. There is no exception here. I was actually surprised and a little sad to see how commercial it is. But as with other attractions, we ignored what we weren't interested in and did what we wanted to do.
You will find lots of restaurants including:
In the Galleria mall (next to the Observation building) you will find:
We were in the mood for sushi when we went up the Peak, so we decided to have lunch with a view at Kyo Hachi Japanese Restaurant in the observation building itself with a view. The food was OK, the view was awesome, and the service wasn't so great. Oh and it was expensive, but then again you are paying for the view.
