Stunning views from two rooftop decks one puts Hong Kong at your feet with views of busy Victoria Harbour and across to Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui on Kowloon. Visit the second rooftop deck to get views taking in a couple of the other Hong Kong islands and out to sea. Victoria Peak is one of those must do things for visitors and even once you have done it you'll visit again and again each time you return to Hong Kong.

If you arrive on the Peak Tram you'll walk through a market place filled with mass produced souvenirs some prices higher then shops in TST. Personally I move through this area as quickly as safely possible.

Should you be on Victoria Peak at night then more views of the skyline can be seen from the bus ride down and it can make for a bit if a thrill ride.

The first night I was in Hong Kong I took the Peak tram - the oldest public transportation in HK. Once you are off you are at Victoria Peak. The Peak is Hong Kong’s most popular destination. There you’ll get an impressive bird-eye-view of Hong Kong, so my advice is – don’t forget your camera. The best time to visit the peak in my opinion is around sunset then you can capture some magnificent shots of the breathtaking view of the city.

Fantastic views of the city skyline. An absolute must to visit the next day after seeing the symphony of lights to complete the experience.

It's a magnificent view over Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour, but be prepared for smog during the day. There's 5 main ways to get up here: The Peak Tram, minibus from IFC, bus 15 from Central, by taxi, or a hike. Take the Peak Tram up if you're not up for hiking and take the minibus down, unless you're with a group that would fill taxi. It's also the most popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong so be prepared for crowds and waits to get up and down.

Perfect location to check HKG coastline and the scenery. But you got to choose your timing. Best time to visit is during evening time when the skies are clear. Worth taking the Tram but also the bus ride from Central bus station for a wow surrounding...

The peak is, in my opinion, the best way to get the beautiful view of HK. Go there during sunset to see the peak both with day light and during the night! A must do in HK!

If you want to see the whole Hong Kong at night, don't forget to take tram going to The Peak. Go at night.

A great way to see the entire Hong Kong Skyline and surrounding terrain from a great vantage point. Get here by hiking, taxi or tram. I've heard the bike is great, but if you're just here for the view a team or taxi will get you up pretty quick.

If you find yourself in Hong Kong with some spare time on your hands, you should visit the Peak. A walk around the hiking trail will provide you with a 360 view of Hong Kong Island. And while the food quality is not fantastic, there is something for everyone. Enjoy!

Amazing views of the city from Victoria Peak; it really is worth a visit if it's your first time in Hong Kong. It's family friendly -- you can get tickets at the lower terminus and tickets for adults will run you 40HKD. Try to go early close to opening because the line is horrendous going up and down mid-day. I went around 11am and I managed to get on the first tram up. The trams are 120+ years old!

Once you're up there, go to the pagoda for great shots of the harbor. You can also explore the two plazas at the top for some light shopping. Both have outdoor patios that I don't think a lot of people know about. When I stumbled upon them, there weren't that many people outside. These spots offer different views too -- the outdoor spot at Peak Tower had a map that pointed out the different islands that you can see from the patio. If you're on a budget, you can get some snacks from the 7-Eleven and skip the restaurants here. Do walk around though if you have time; there are some hiking trails too.

Some seriously spectacular views can be had from this spot. I thought the actual viewing deck wasn't really worth the cost (if you pay for the tram with your Octopus card and don't go to the deck, you can save some money). There are lots of places to get the same view from the shopping center at the peak. But still worth a visit no matter where you get the views.

Lovely place to either trek or take a tram uphill. Mount Austin as it's also known is a great spot to catch a panoramic bird's eye view of the island city. It's one of my favorite things to do in HK and could almost be an obligatory tourist spot. You can catch some really good photos from up here including selfies.

The view really speaks for itself here at the morning trail along Lugard Road on Victoria Peak.

Well I cannot resist to write a few lines about my city. I give it 5 stars, but I could be a bit bias since I am from Hong Kong. Though...honestly I haven't been able to find a night view that supersedes this.

A few tips: try to go in summer if you can. unfortunately, in recent years the smog and pollution from China really affected the view, so if you go in winter you are just going to see a bunch of fogs.

Also, take the peak tram up if you can. HK has the most inclined tram in the world-45 degree if I remember correctly. Remember to bring chewing gums. The tram dated back to 1881 when Hong Kong was still a British colony so it has significant historic value. The views going up is amazing, and it builds up your expectation, so when you finally reach the peak and see the view you are like wow I am in heaven.

The tram line up to Victoria Peak can be daunting, but it is well worth the wait. Once you get to the top, there are several restaurants and areas to eat with a spectacular view of Hong Kong.

The best and most crowded time to visit is dusk because you get to see the view by day and the unbelievable view at night when the city comes alive. My advice is stake your claim by the railing and wait it out for the sun to set. Otherwise, you'll find it difficult to get an unobstructed view without other tourists blocking your view.

I also recommend researching the best setting to photograph the skyline so your pictures don't turn out blurry.

I climbed to Victoria Peak from Hong Kong University via the Lung Fun Trail. This peak plaza is not the actual peak, but is an area of restaurants and shops. The cable car down to Central was fun though.

Take a walk around the mountain for a 360 view of the harbour and all three main islands! The trail is about 2.8 km and is worth the relaxing stroll, perfect for relaxing and viewing Hong Kong. After that you can go up the the free observation deck on the third floor if you can't afford the sky terrace. And also walk a little bit past the sky terrace and you'll see a small temple-like structure that's a great vantage point for the harbour and for taking photos.

Best panaramic view I have ever seen in a city. I literally spent an entire day taking in the view and eating lunch on the tropical mountain top.
