With an elevation of 552 meters, Victoria Peak is the highest point on Hong Kong Island. It is the best place to look out over the towering city skyline. Riding the 125-year-old Peak Tram is one of the best visual experiences. This 8-minute trip will offer you sweeping views of Hong Kong Island's skyscrapers, verdant trees, and walking paths. On the peak, you will feast your eyes on a sea of skyscrapers and the city's beautiful blue waterways, and even the green hills of the distant New Territories, if the weather permits.
The Star Ferry is one of the best ways to enjoy the view of the Victoria Harbour skyline. The Star Ferry has been carrying passengers from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and back since 1888. You can embark on a trip from Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier on the Kowloon Peninsula to either the Central Ferry Piers or the Wan Chai Pier on the Hong Kong Island side. The shortest voyage takes about 8 minutes and costs ₹17.5. It is memorable to take a close look at so many towering skyscrapers while floating on the calm waters.
