Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

7 million visitors visit The Peak each year in Hong Kong ... Located at an altitude of 550m, it has some of the highest residential prices on Earth!


The Peak Tower


Lots of elevators in The Peak Tower!


And now .. the view! I took all my HK photos with a Panasonic GF-1, with the superb pancake 20mm f/1.7 lens.


The cost of this view? Pay 56 HKD (return) or 45 HKD (single) for a Peak Tram Sky Pass, which allows travel on the Peak Tram as well as allows you to view HK harbour from the Sky Terrace. We chose to take the bus up, and the tram down, so only bought a single pass.
