Visit Hong Kong's iconic Victoria Peak

You’ve hit every shop, bar and restaurant in the city and want to get a taste for Hong Kong’s natural side, but where do you go? Despite its reputation for being a concrete jungle, the region also has a number of stunning ‘green’ spots that make a great break from the urban spaces. One iconic landmark among these is Victoria Peak, more commonly referred to simply as The Peak.

If any one vista could be said to sum up Hong Kong, it would be the panoramic scenes glimpsed from atop Victoria Peak’s highest point. You’ll be able to drink it all in from the vantage point – the vaulted sky above, the glittering city below, the placid sea encompassing it all and in the distance, the misty shapes of mountains. Locals and tourists never tire of this view and have been known to return time and time again to take in the vibrancy of the region, all from this one locale.

Known during its colonial era as being a neighbourhood frequented by the rich and famous for its cool atmosphere (they were pre-aircon after all), to this day the district is a fashionable postcode and attracts some of the most breathtaking architecture, tastiest restaurants and high-end shopping outlets. For the best experience, head there within half an hour of sundown to see a spectacular sunset and watch the area come alive with a multi-coloured vibrancy.

More than just a hill with a view, The Peak has a number of great vantage points, including The Peak Tower which offers a complimentary observation deck, The Peak Galleria. Visitors can also indulge in a number of dining and retail options available here. For a new angle, head to Lugard Road Lookout and Lions Point View Pavilion or take the 3.5-kilometre Peak Circle Walk.

WINGED BOOTS WISDOM

When all your exploring makes you hungry, why not stop off at the site’s Lú Fēng, an eatery which offers authentic Hong Kong style dining in a unique 60s and 70s setting. Featuring wok-fried dishes and all-day dim sum, the restaurant is open from 11am to 11pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 11pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays.
