Visit Victoria Peak Garden and Mount Austin Playground
Every visitor to Hong Kong takes the Peak Tram and "does" Victoria Peak. But there is a lot more to The Peak than simply the, admittedly impressive, views over Victoria Harbour or the modern shopping complex.
In fact "the peak" which the tram takes you to is a low point, a gap between two heights, and if you have the energy to walk up hill just a little more you will be well rewarded.
As well as being a prime residential district the area with the Peak Garden and Mount Austin Playground have large open green lawns, with traditional sitting out areas.
Couldn't be better for a day out with the kids, there are places to picnic, drinking fountains and plenty of open spaces to run around.
What you won't find is many people; tourists don't come here, and the locals are at work. At most you'll find some at-home mums with their kids, or domestic helpers walking the dogs!
