“Sky Terrace 428 has some spectacular views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

This cool wok-shaped structure is home to attractions like Madam Tussauds Hong Kong, Sky Terrace 428, the Peak Market and it forms the Upper Terminus of the iconic and historic Peak Tram.

This is basically a shopping mall sitting near the summit of Victoria Peak. You can find shops like Hard Rock, Crocs etc. There are some cafes in here too! If you can get a good seat, the Pacific Coffee Company boasts some really nice views of the city skyline, especially for those who don’t wish to fork out an additional entrance fee for the Sky Terrace 428. The Sky Terrace was worth it in my opinion; I got to catch a superb view of the Hong Kong city skyline. The weather was cloudy but fine the day I went up, thankfully! There is a professional photographer on site if you wish to get a picture-perfect moment, at a fee of course. For those who don’t wish to fork out that additional charge for Sky Terrace 428, as I said earlier, can always choose to lounge in Pacific Coffee Company or head to the Peak Galleria just opposite. It’s free-of-charge to go up to the top, some nice views to be had from there too. Dining choices in Peak Tower is limited to fine dining, so I suggest the Peak Galleria shopping mall if you’re looking for cheaper alternatives. Oh and the toilets are poorly maintained and downright disgusting (huge cockroaches running around everywhere), which is quite awful, considering this is a popular tourist destination.

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

The view from up at the top of the peak is great. The tram ride up and down is fun and very steep! There is a nice artist up there too.

This is the best thing in Hong Kong, the best view you can ever have. You can't miss it, unless if it is raining, of course.

“The HK in night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012 via mobile

The lights are very beautiful, especially if you go to the top. But remember to bring jacket because its very windy and cold at night. The package is much cheaper if you buy return tram ticket plus the tower view. Ask for the package in the tram ticket counter.

“Must see”

If you are passing by hk, this is a must place to go. If you want to save some money there is a option to go by bus, it is also a nice trip.
