[Introduction]

I traveled to Hong Kong for five days and four nights in the end of November for the first time in five years. While there is a lot of scenery which has been unchanged, I find out something new whenever I visit Hong Kong. In this article, I will write about Victoria Peak and night walk around Central (中環) as part of Day 2.

Victoria Peak

Following the previous post, I moved to Victoria Peak from Central, though the weather was not so good.

There are several options to go to Victoria Peak, including Peak Tram (Cable Car), and I used a mini bus that departed from the underground of Four Seasons Hotel (directly connected to IFC Mall).Hong Kong Victoria Peak mini bus

To begin with, I walked around Peak Galleria, a shopping mall.Hong Kong Peak Galleria

This is the building of Peak Tower.""

I passed through Peak Tower for the time being and moved further to Lions Pavilion.""

Lions Pavilion was an observation deck built in 1976. Though the observation deck of Lions Pavilion is a little bit lower than that of Peak Tower, but Lions Pavilion is available for free.Hong Kong Victoria Peak Lions Pavilion1

Then, I entered into Peak Tower. Peak Tower is a commercial facility that had shops and restaurants as well as a paid observation deck.

One of the shops is “Madame Tussauds Hong Kong”.Madame Tussauds Hong Kong

I will have a dinner at Peak Tower. I dropped by “Hong Kong Day (香港地)”.香港 ピーク・タワー Hong Kong Day(香港地)1

I ordered French toast and milk tea, which seemed to be a signature menu in this restaurant.香港 ピーク・タワー Hong Kong Day(香港地)2

After dinner, I moved to the observation deck, “Sky Terrace 428”.Hong Kong Peak Tower1

I reached the observation deck.Hong Kong Peak Tower Sly terrace1

I planned to stay here to watch night view, but it was foggy and started to rain, so I decided to go away.

There was “The Hong Kong Observation Wheel (香港摩天輪)”, but it seemed to be suspended.Hong Kong Observation Wheel

Back to Tsim Sha Tsui by Start Ferry

Now I will go back to Tsim Sha Tsui where I am staying. I chose to use Star Ferry instead of MTR.

The ferry departed from the pier.Hong Kong star ferry Night view1

I took snaps photos such as “Shanghai Tang” near the hotel and the second day of my Hong Kong trip was over.Hong Kong Shanghai Tang

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Victoria Peak and night walk around Central (中環) as part of Day 2 of my Hong Kong trip.

I have been to Victoria Peak several times before and the condition was not good this time. Just like Mount Hakodate last year (see the related post), I had little luck when I tried to watch scenery from mountains 🙁 However, I found night view from Star Ferry was beautiful, so I recommend it 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Ocean Park as part of Day 3.

  1. いつも拝見させて頂いてます。素敵な写真ばかりですね。
    私も11月に香港に行ったのですが、ピークタワー横の盧吉道という場所から見た100万ドルの夜景が素晴らしかったです。よかったら次行かれた際に行ってみてください☺️

    1. kakkiさんへ、弊ブログを定期的にごらんいただき、また今回コメントをいただきありがとうございます。盧吉道については初めて知り、チラッと調べてみましたが、こちらも良さげですね。次回行く機会があればトライしたいと思います。引き続きよろしくお願いします!
