Overlooking the Central district on Hong Kong Island, Victoria Peak (Tai Ping Shan) is one of the best vantage points for stupendous views of the harbor and high-rises. Rising 1,810 feet (552 meters), Victoria Peak is topped with the touristy Peak Tower complex of shops, restaurants and 360-degree Sky Terrace viewing platform.
Go for a stroll through the Victoria Peak Garden, follow one of the many nature walks on the mountain, and stay on for nightfall to see Hong Kong's spectacular nightly light show.

Doing what: Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour
This was a great tour conducted by Wendy. We had a very informative tour scattered with stories of real life of both modern day and past Hong Kong. The tour took in all the main sights Victoria Peak and tram, Repulse Bay, Stanley Market, Aberdeen harbour and Junk ride ( An extra but worth it) even the jewellery stop was interesting. Wendy made the tour a pleasure and the coach was clean and comfortable with a good driver. We have used viator previously in other countries and would definatley use them again. Many thanks Mel and Wendy x
Very informative and extensive tour of the mainland and islands. Good stops and photo opportunities and the funicular ride to the Peak was excellent.
Victoria Peak is on Hong Kong Island. Whether you travel by tram or bus, the steep trip up to Victoria Peak is part of the experience. The Peak Tram leaves Central every 10 minutes or so from the lower terminus, where you’ll also find the Peak Tram Historical Gallery, celebrating 120 years of tram service history.
