Solo Adventure Tips:
Victoria Peak/ The Peak is located in the Midwest District on the western half of Hong Kong Island.
How to Get There?
The most enjoyable and spectacular way to reach The Peak is to take Victoria Peak Tram. The tram runs daily - literally, i.e., 365 days a year - and operates between the hours of 7 AM (07:00) to midnight (24:00).
Alternatively, you can choose a shuttle bus, which runs between the central Star Ferry pier and the Victoria Peak Tram terminus at Garden Road. Or, if you are the hardy type, you can foot it via the MTR Central Station's J2 exit.
The area never closes, though many shops close at various hours, while some bars, cafés and restaurants are open all night, and most public transportation ceases by midnight, though there are taxis.
As indicated above, during public holidays, taking the tram can be trying, given the long wait for tickets, so you might want to consider the shuttle bus instead, though the tram trip is truly a tonic experience.
Besides the Ripleys Believe It or Not! Odditorium, there is something called the Dynamic Cinema, where you can try the thrill of screaming at the top of your lungs - it is almost as stress-relieving as a good massage!
To descend from the peak, you can take the free, double-decker sightseeing bus which, once at the base of the mountain, will continue on in a tour around the urban area of Hong Kong Island. The best views are from the upper deck, of course. Be prepared for a glass, steel and concrete view in the built-up area, as there are many tall buildings here. The Legislative Council, on the other hand, harks back to the past, as it stems from the island's colonial era, with faint, yellow lights that contrast softly with white pillars, producing a romantic effect. Many films and TV shows have made use of this period piece of colonial architecture.
