    A favourite attraction among visitors and locals alike, Victoria Peak offers breathtaking view of the one of the world’s most beautiful harbour. Vistas stretch from Kowloon in the north and Aberdeen and the South China Sea in the south. Like a stylized bowl on a Chinese gateway. The new Peak Tower is a one- stop entertainment spot with features a viewing terrace, shopping, dining and theme attraction.

    Victoria Peak: Beautiful view!

    by arv1 Updated Feb 21, 2005

    The view is really pretty at night and safe for all ages. It can be very romantic sitting in a restaurant or bar, and watching the whole of Hong Kong carry on with their life!

    Dress Code: No special dress requirements, maybe something warm, as it can get quite cold up there...but not very!! So maybe 3/4 length trousers instead of shorts!!

    Hongkong by night

    Hongkong by night - especially from Victoria Peak is breathtaking! Victoria Peak is 554 meters high and the highest point of Hong Kong Island. The Peak Tower and the Peak Galleria at the tram station have large viewing terraces.

    Another option would be to go down to the Star Ferry on the Kowloon side and just enjoy the view of the Hongkong skyline from there. It is a fabulous sight!!!

    Victoria Peak: GRANDSCALE LIGHT SHOW

    Hong Kong at Night with Fog

    At night, Victoria Harbour looks even more spectacular than in day time, for the lights illuminate the sky & the waters. Up there, you will be able to bask in the glowing aura of the lights below.

    Dress Code: Remember to bring mosquito repellent!

    Views from Victoria Peak

    Victoria Peak offers one of the prettiest views of Hong Kong and Kowloon, and is especially stunning at night. Once at the peak, you can visit Ripley's Believe It or Not, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, or have a romantic dinner at Cafe Deco.

    Dress Code: Bring a jacket during the winter. It can get pretty cold and windy up there!

    Victoria Peak: Victoria Peak by tram

    by trees100ft Updated Sep 30, 2003

    View of the funicular railway track

    Take the peak tram ride from Central (Garden Road) to the peak. The tram ride is an attraction in its own right. I like to take it in the evening and be at the peak to catch sundown and see the lights of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon come on. It's quite a magical sight.

    Dinner at the peak is good and surprisingly reasonably priced. There are many restaurants and cafes including Marche, Grappa and Pacific Coast. I had dinner at the nicest restaurant there with arguably the best view of HK. It's the Cafe Deco. It isn't really a cafe, but rather a big restaurant-bar with a amazingly wide selection of cuisines.

    While at the Peak Tower, do a spot of shopping. You'll see more or less the same kind of shops (G2000, Hush Puppies) at main streets like Causeway Bay and Tsimshatsui, but minus the crazy crowds. In fact the small mall was pretty desolated when I was there, and I was able to shop at leisure. Received great service from a very enthusiastic salesgirl.

    Dress Code: Dress up for dinner to enjoy the special moment. Smart casuals during the day is fine.

  • Victoria Peak: Best to go there at night time..

    hongkong from the Peak

    There is no lack of bars in Hong Kong, in fact it has one of the best night life scenes anywhere in Asia. Something for everybody's taste and wallet. I reccomend you to,
    Victoria Peak and Straberrys. Is supposed to be the late spot taking over from the Big Apple, I guess!, here everybody from everywhere in Hong Kong would converge for late night dancing. Great place.

    Dress Code: Wear those comfortable jeans and a bit sexy top!

    The Peak: City of lights

    by borneogirl Written Feb 4, 2003

    A friend once took me on a drive to the top of the Peak, on Hong Kong island. I was there once & thought there were nothing special. However, that 2nd trip was in the evening. As the car went further up, I began to notice the SPECTACULAR view!! Lights.. thousands of them, from buildings... hundreds of them! The sight was AMAZING! What you see on postcards are NOTHING compared to seeing the view with your own eyes!!

    Do go up to The Peak during the night to catch the fabulous night scenes of Hong Kong.
    To get the best view, go up to the Peak Tower as it is simply magnificent, and you can enjoy the enchanting night scenery of Hong Kong Island across Victoria Harbour to the Kowloon Peninsula, known as one of the four most spectacular night scenes in the world.

    Dress Code: Casual and comfortable.

    It was never satisfied to miss the most beautiful time in Hong Kong. The night view is great! Took a cable car ride through the sliding hill to the peak in the city. The air is fresh and cooling.

    How to do it.
