Best for: Those who are new to Hong Kong
A must-see spot in Hong Kong, The Peak is very popular thanks to its epic views of Victoria Harbour and the city itself. The easiest way to explore The Peak – other than visiting the lookout – is to take an easy-going hour-long walk around the Peak. The Harlech Road and Lugard Road Circular Walk begin next to Peak Tower, and it offers a 360-degree view of the city. The walk is flat and accessible by baby strollers too. You may also want to visit in the evening to view Hong Kong’s iconic skyline at night. If your schedule allows, pay a visit to Victoria Peak Garden which is a mere 10-minute walk from Peak Tower. This was the former residence of the Governor of Hong Kong which has since been demolished, but the park remains as an attraction at the Peak.
Distance: 3.5 km
Duration: 1 hour

Top tip: The circular walk is family and pet-friendly. But be aware that it is a popular hike and can get crowded during weekends.
How to get there: Take the tram from the lower Peak Tram terminus on Garden Road, or take the 15 bus from Exchange Square bus terminus and alight at The Peak.
