Victoria Peak is a mountain in Hong Kong. The locals call it simply "the Peak". With its 552 m (or 1,811 ft), Victoria Peak is not the highest mountain in Hong Kong, because this title goes to Tai Mo Shan: 957 m (3,140 ft). However, Victoria Peak is the highest mountain on Hong Kong Island and there is one thing that makes it special and famous: the view. How can you describe that kind of view? Spectacular, stunning, amazing, magnificent... The list of adjectives could go on and on. The best you can do is to visit it and experience it for yourself. It is an excellent vantage point for photography (if the visibility allows for it).
There are several ways to get there. Of course, you can climb it, but if you decide to do it during the hot and humid Hong Kong summer with photo equipment on your back, prepare to sweat a lot. You can get there also by car, bus or taxi. There is also the famous Peak Tram, which is a fun experience in itself. It is a funicular railway, which starts at Garden Road near the Admiralty MTR Station and goes all the way up to the visitor centre on Victoria Peak. The number of seats on the Peak Tram is very limited, so you will have to stand in a very long line before you can buy a ticket and board it.
