Complimentary Sightseeing Programme on 7 July 2015

Visit: The Peak
Approx. duration: 17:30-
(Complimentary coach to the Peak and a one-way Peak Tram ticket return to the Peak Tram Lower Terminus will be provided.)

The highest point on Hong Kong Island, The Peak has been the city's most exclusive neighbourhood since colonial times – back then it was the cooler air that attracted the rich and famous; in the post air-conditioning era, the views of one of the world's most spectacular cityscapes keep them coming.


That view is also what makes The Peak one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. By day your eyes stretch across sparkling skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour all the way to the green hills of the New Territories.

The anvil-shaped The Peak Tower has a large viewing platform called Sky Terrace 428, in addition to dining and retail outlets. Nearby, The Peak Galleria has a free-entry observation deck, as well as shopping and dining options. More eye gulps of the views can be had at Lugard Road Lookout, Lions View Point Pavilion. For leisurely unfolding vistas, take the 3.5-kilometre Peak Circle Walk.

Riding the Peak Tram is a visual experience in its own right -- Hong Kong Island's skyscrapers slide past your window at what appear to be impossible angles as you make the ascent to The Peak on the city's historic, funicular railway.
