The spectacular Victoria Peak in Hong Kong

West of the Hong Kong Island you find the highest mountain on the island, Pico Victoria, and which is 552 meters high. It is also known as El Pico or Monte Austin and it is one of the most visited places in Hong Kong by all the tourists who come to the island thanks to the spectacular views It has not only the city but the bay and the Kowloon peninsula. Without a doubt, the best viewpoint you can find to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view and take the best possible souvenir photos.

The best way to power get to Victoria Peak is going on the funicular, which works from 7 in the morning until 12 at night and that it has a frequency of 15 minutes. You can also get there by taxi walking to the Old Peak road or by car, but none of those options is as nice as the funicular, although there is another that can be compared and that is going by train from the central district. It takes about 45 minutes to do the tour, on a very old train, and while you can go enjoying the views.

When you're already at the top, the best thing is take you for a walk to enjoy the views and then go to the two shopping malls that have opened at the top, the Peak Tower and the Peak Galleria and where you can find several shops with souvenirs, jewelry, clothing, restaurants and other entertainment venues. In Pico Victoria there are also some beautiful gardens that are very well kept and are located next to Mountain Lodge, which is the place where the governor formerly had his summer residence. Even if you go during the day, it would be great if you could stay when it gets dark so you can enjoy the fully lit views.
