Iconic tourist destination offers something for everyone – and all-round views

The Peak is probably Hong Kong’s most visited tourist destination. It stands sentinel over Hong Kong harbour, and offers 360° views across Hong Kong Island and beyond. The most iconic way to reach The Peak is by the Peak Tram, one of the oldest funicular railways in the word – inaugurated in 1888 – which travels up to a height of 396m. As well as strolling around the Peak circuit, visitors can visit the Peak Tower with its viewing galleries, Madame Tussauds, shops and restaurants. The Peak was the city’s most exclusive neighbourhood in old times – and is still home to many of its richest residents.
