Evening was dedicated to Victoria Peak, the most touristy place in HK. It is the highest point on Hong Kong island where you can get breathtaking views of HK skyline and its harbor. There is unique structure of Peak Tower on top which itself an architecture marvel. We had bought tickets for this from Klook, so we reached MTR station - Central, walked down to peak tram station, stood in long queues for more than an hour and a half and took a tram to reach the top. Alternatively, there are buses and cabs that can take you to the top. But peak tram is iconic which has its own old charm. Our ticket included one way fast pass to peak tram and return in normal way. Then also we had to wait for long time to get our turn. Once we boarded, the tram started in its steep way going up & above giving us the amazing views.
Day 4: Day started with a FOMO realization that we have too much to cover & too less time, took a conscious decision to skip Lantau Island and headed straight to Victoria Peak (highest point in Hongkong) via Peak Tram, Brilliant panorama view to the city.Since we had a long day ahead, we skipped the long tram queue while returning and took a cab to Man Mo Temple (#1 sight in Hong Kong as per Lonely Plant), also a declared monument.
On the last day, we headed out to Victoria's Peak where one can get the complete view of all the islands of HK! It's a breathtaking sight and atop the peak, a lot of events take place. This time around, small school kids stood singing some Chinese song! There is also a cable car ride that takes you downhill from where you can catch a train and head back to the mainland. The queue that had lined up for it put me off and we decided to skip it.
Victoria Peak a must go place to see the panaromic view of Hong kong
One “tourist” site that is a must is Victoria’s Peak. If you don’t want to wait in the long tram line up the mountain, take a bus or taxi. The views from the peak are incredible. Another must is a ride on the Star Ferry which connects Central to Tsim Sha Tsui.
