1. For the views, obvs
No lie. At The Peak, you'll be wowed by one of the best city skylines you'll ever find on your wanderings across the planet. The Peak tops the highest mountain on Hong Kong Island, dishing up views over the towering skyscrapers to Kowloon and all the way to the New Territories. Day or night - when the city lights sparkle - it'll blow your mind.
2. To ride the tram
It's fun. It's historic. And it's the iconic way to get to the top - in seven minutes flat. Okay, so the lines to get on are long (or book in advance to fast-track the queue). But it's worth it. The tram literally slides up the mountain at a 45 degree angle and you get a preview of the epic views before you arrive. Hold on!
3. Eats and drinks with a side of wow
Woodfired pizzas with a view? A beer or two? Fill up on more than panoramas at the top. From Japanese with a Rock & Roll vibe to all-day dim sum and American style bites, it's a hard spot to beat.
4. A pretty (+ easy) hike
Step into the wilds of the mountain where you'll also find some of the best views on The Peak. The Peak Circle Walk winds around the highest point and only takes about an hour on a good and easy shaded path.
5. Madame Tussauds
Yep, you can even find Madame Tussauds at The Peak. Pose with your Queen and all kinds of celebs, from Lady Gaga to Jackie Chan.
