The Peak is the highest point on Hong Kong Island and, as you may expect, delivers some of the most jaw-dropping views. Take the Peak Tram early (it starts at 7am), as queues build later in the day; then it’s up to the Sky Terrace in the Peak Tower (428 metres up above sea level). It’s a well-worn tourist route but it’s still a worthwhile excursion. To lose the crowds afterwards, turn right out of the tram depot and walk up Mount Austin Road for 15 to 20 minutes to the serene Victoria Peak Garden. This beautiful grassy expanse at the top of The Peak was once the site of the governor’s summer residence. Views are breathtaking and it’s incredibly peaceful.
