Victoria Peak (Tai Ping Shan) Tours

Overlooking the Central district on Hong Kong Island, Victoria Peak (Tai Ping Shan) is one of the best vantage points for stupendous views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong’s skyscrapers. Rising 1,810 feet (552 meters), the mountain is topped with a 360-degree Sky Terrace viewing platform and the Peak Tower complex of shops and restaurants. There’s also a network of nature trails through lush tropical forest.

The Basics
With its unbeatable views, Victoria Peak is one of Hong Kong’s most popular tourist attractions and a stop on nearly every city tour, with stops at other sites like the Aberdeen Fishing Village and Stanley Market. There are even quick “layover” tours departing from Hong Kong International Airport, giving you the opportunity to snap some photos from the top of the peak before heading out of Hong Kong.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Victoria Peak is a must-see for first-time visitors to Hong Kong.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on uneven surfaces, especially if you plan to use the nature trails.
  • Ride the Peak Tram to the top, or visit as part of a guided tour of Hong Kong.
  • Admission lines can take well over an hour on weekend afternoons and public holidays, so it’s best to book ahead.

How to Get There
The quickest and most iconic way to reach Victoria Peak is aboard the Peak Tram, which departs every 10 minutes or so from the lower terminus near Central Station. Alternately, visitors can ride Bus 15 all the way to the top. It’s also a stop on hop-on hop-off bus tours.

When to Get There
Victoria Peak is best visited first thing in the morning on a weekday to avoid long queues at the tram and crowds on the observation platforms. The busiest times at the peak tend to be weekend afternoons during summer and on public holidays. The peak also gets busy in the evenings with visitors seeking a panoramic view of the Symphony of Lights multimedia show around Victoria Harbour.

Getting the Best View from the Top
Situated at the top of the peak, Sky Terrace 428 is the highest 360-degree observation deck in Hong Kong. Budget-minded travelers who’d rather not pay the entrance fee have some other options as well: The Peak Galleria has its own observation deck on Level 3, which is only slightly lower in elevation and free of charge, while the deck at the Lion’s Pavilion at The Peak is another free option.
