Victoria Peak - Famous Lookout Place in Hong Kong

Viewed from this famous lookout place, the scenes there are different between the daytime and the nighttime.
You will see the nice views of the whole city, including those high and crowded buildings, the busy harbor and the colorful city view which is lit up by different lights.
It is also one of the best lookout places in Hong Kong to have a bird's-eye view of the harbor and the city.

This lookout point is located at the highest peak on the Hong Kong Island.
This peak is called the "Victoria Peak" and it is one of the famous landmarks in Hong Kong.
It is also known as "Mount Austin" and is referred as "Tai Ping Shan" locally.

Before the 19th century, the Victoria Peak is a natural signaling post for the incoming cargo ships.
However, after the early 20th century, it was mainly served as an residential area for expats.
Gradually, it has become a symbol of power in Hong Kong.

To get there, riding the peak tram is the quickest and the most scenic way.
You can also take the MTR to Admiralty MTR Station and leave at Exit C1.
Then, take bus No.15 at Queensway Plaza Bus Stop and get off at The Peak Bus Terminus.
