  • Great look out, great hike. In my opinion, the visit is a must, when being in Hong Kong. It can be a bit crowded, but it's worth.  more »
  • We love to walk around the peak! It gives you a view of all of HK and is a pleasant hike. Usually it takes about 45 mins unless we get sidetracked and take a new trail.  more »
  • I love Victoria Peak and would give it 5 stars except the smog makes it harder to take good pictures. I have been up here a few times and for sure it is a nice break from the crowded urban city experience. The best time of year is in the cooler months, as Hong Kong even on the Peak can be pretty brutal hot.
  • Just an amazing view. A must do if you head to Hong Kong! Doesn’t cost you anything! Takes about 50 minutes to walk up, if you don’t feel like doing that then catch the tram. Either way the view is not to be missed.
