I’m pretty sure that if you go to Hong Kong and don’t go to The Peak, no one here will ever be your friend again. And I like all of the people I know in Hong Kong. So last Saturday we went to The Peak.
First important piece of information, The Peak is actually Victoria Peak, and it’s hanging out right by Central, which is very convienient. You can hike to the top, or if you have children with small legs in your party, you may want to take the tram. Warning: the tram only takes cash or the Octopus card, so plan accordingly.
When you buy your tram ticket, you can bundle in admission to the Sky Terrace 428. This is an outdoor observation deck, and I’d highly recommend it. Along with the great views of Hong Kong, they give you an audio tour that was actually really interesting.
Once you’ve finished taking inthe view, there’s plenty more to do. There are a number of different restaurants to choose from if you’re feeling peckish.
