The Peak in Hong Kong

Sky Terrace 428 Viewpoint

The view from The Peak will take your breath away… On a clear day, a simply stunning panorama can be viewed from the pinnacle of this landmark on Hong Kong Island. The Peak – Hong Kong's premier tourist spot, just under 500-metres high (around 1,085 feet above sea level) – is an ideal place to spend some quality time with family and friends.

The best vista is from the panoramic viewing platform called Sky Terrace 428 (due to its height above sea level) which offers 360 degree views of Hong Kong, Kowloon and Victoria Harbour in between. Located on the very top of The Peak, this vantage point really highlights the density of the countless skyscrapers shooting up into the sky on Hong Kong Island.   

After enjoying the view from Sky Terrace 428, you might also enjoy a picnic on The Peak, where you will be serenaded by chirping birds and the gentle rustling of leaves. The vista is enhanced by nature trails under the canopy of trees and the colonial ambiance of Victoria Peak Garden.
