Victoria Peak and Peak Tramway


Descriptions
The Victoria Peak
Victoria Peak, 552 metres (1,817 feet) above sea level, is the highest point of the whole of Hong Kong Island. There are many panoramic views from the Peak, allowing tourists to enjoy the beautiful overlook over Hong Kong.

There are modern malls, restaurants, museums, theatres and various recreational facilities near the Peak Tram Station, each setting off one another while combining with the beautiful natural scenery of the Peak. The facilities here are comprehensive, allowing tourists to enjoy a leisurely day.

The Peak Tramway
The Peak Tramway is one of the steepest cable railroads in the world. It carries passengers from the downtown of the city, passes the residential area of the Mid-Levels and then to the Peak. The Peak Tramway was put into service in 1888 and was improved in 1989 so as to provide world-class cable railroad services.

When the lights are turned on at sunset, one of the world's most spectacular nightscapes comes to life. It really is a pity if a tourist comes to Hong Kong without taking a journey on the Peak Tramway.
