Definitely the easiest of the lot, this iconic jaunt makes the list because of the breath-taking views that it affords those who come up here after dark – down on the high-rise neighbourhoods of Kowloon.
Getting up to where the hill starts involves navigating the bustling streets of Sham Shui Po, heading northeast up Kweilin Street and making until you hit Castle Peak Road. By the time you hit this intersection, you'll already be able to see the hill a few hundred metres away, even in the dark. Use the crossings to navigate the intersection – passing the Garden Bakery on your left from where the hill gets its name – and then cross Berwick Street.
At this point you're almost there – simply duck down a path at the side of Mei Ho House and follow the steps up to your enchanting view spot. After rubbing elbows with the photographers – that seem to be up here every night without fail – enjoy the views down on Kowloon and then saunter back down into the busy streets.
How to get there:
At Sham Shui Po MTR Station, take exit D2 and take the flat, 500m route to the foot of the hill. From here, take a deep breath and ascend the snaking stone staircase up the hill.
