If the weather cooperates, the view from the top of Victoria Peak, which is also simply called the Peak, will make your day. Get up to Hong Kong Island’s highest point (552 meters, or 1,811 feet, above sea level) by bus, train or taxi, or better yet, ride the outdoor escalators. This fun option gets you as far as the Peak Tram, a century-old funicular railway that makes the rest of the steep trip to the top.
