The Peak, Hong Kong

Located on Hong Kong Island, The Peak was never as popular as it is today.

During the first six years of Hong Kong’s history, hardly anybody traveled up there. Only in 1888, when the Peak Tramway was opened, was the area atop the hill acknowledged as The Peak.

The Peak Tram, takes people up and down the hillside, and has been maintaining a safe reputation since its first operation. The experience on riding this tram was indeed unforgettable.

The current Peak Tower was built originally in 1997 but a major refurbishment took place over a two year period during 2005/6 which included the internal structure being completely rebuilt, panoramic windows installed and a new viewing terrace being built on the roof. The refurbished Peak Tower reopened during November 2006.

The tower has six levels and a roof terrace. There are souvenir shops, restaurants and the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum.
