The Peak is the highest point on the island, playing host to more than 6 million visitors each year. Not only is the view one of the most spectacular cityscapes in the world, it’s also a good way to put Hong Kong and its layout into perspective.
It features the city's oldest and most reliable mode of public transport, The Peak Tram, began operating in 1888 and is a funicular railway that carves a steep 373-metre swathe up the lush mountainside. A scenic ride up from the city centre to The Peak takes only 7 minutes.
At the summit, visitors arrive at The Peak Tower, the city's most unusual building and icon. The unique "wok" shaped tower sits at an elevation of 396 metres. Viewing terraces located on different levels of the tower offer spectacular views of the Hong Kong and Kowloon skylines, including Victoria Harbour.
The Peak Tower also puts visitors in touch with Hong Kong's lesser known, but equally breathtaking natural side. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll along one of the nature trails starting from The Peak Tower and relax among the lush green vegetation while enjoying a 360-degree view of Hong Kong.
In level 2 of the Peak Tower is Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. There you can get up close and personal with your favourite stars: such as soccer David Beckham, action king Jackie Chan, actor/singer Andy Lau, etc. You and your kids will see about 100 wax figures of celebrities that look exactly like the real person.
The most enjoyable and spectacular way to reach The Peak is to take a ride on the Peak Tram. The Peak Tram runs every day, including Sundays and public holidays, between 7:00 am and 12:00 midnight.
