Victoria'a Peak- Hong Kong

Looking for something to do while you're in Hong Kong? You must go to this tourist attraction.....


Last month I spent some time in Hong Kong. One day I took the tram up to Victoria's Peak - which is sometimes referred to as "The Peak." It's about $6 US for a round trip tram ticket. This is the highest mountain on Hong Kong island with an elevation of about 552 m. The area immediately surrounding the peak is some of the most expensive real-estate in all of the world. During the summer, this is a nice place to go to escape the heat and humidity. There are two shopping areas there; The Peak Galleria, and the Peak Tower. You'll find good restaurants, nice coffee shops, and great views. Unfortunately, it was a bit hazy the day I went. It's still a nice way to spend the morning or afternoon. These are a few of the pictures I snapped:

It looks great. I never had any wish or desire to go to Hong Kong, but my mother did go on a missionary trip to China which she said was awesome! But those are nice pictures!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today, nice to meet you!

Been to Hong Kong once. And I don't really fancy going back there again perhaps only for the shopping and the food. Don't like the city. It's dirty and smelly. But Victoria Peak and the offshore islands are awesome.

Yeah, Hong Kong definitely has it's unique smell. And it's crowded. I agree with you about the off shore islands as well. They're beautiful.
