Hong Kong's best views – Get ready to be awestruck

Hong Kong, "Asia's World City", is home to an enduring culture, rich history, tranquil escapes, treats for the taste buds and adventure. Here's a list of Hong Kong's best views which are sure to enthral you:

1

Victoria Peak

This is the highest point in all of Hong Kong. Standing at 552m, it offers amazing views of the city and surrounding woodlands. Victoria Peak is one of the most visited attractions in the city. The recommended way to reach the peak is by the 125 year old Peak Tram, which rises almost vertically to give you a ride you will not forget. Nearby you will also find the burnt ruins of governor's lodge dating back to WWII and the beautiful gardens.

Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade

The Promenade serves wondrous views of what might possibly be world's best skyline. Take a stroll during evening hours for the nightly "Symphony of Lights", a sound and light show involving 44 high-rise buildings. The "Avenue of Stars", which is also on the promenade, pays homage to the local entertainment industry. The New World Centre shopping mall is nearby too. If you travel to Hong Kong in January or early February, don't miss the Chinese New Year fireworks which are a sight to behold.

Ride on the Star Ferry

No visit to Hong Kong is complete without taking a ride on a Star Ferry. The ride serves amazing views regardless of the time of the day. Picture-perfect views of the city's skyscrapers and forest covered hills make for amazing holiday photographs.

Sevva

The balcony of the ultra-hip restaurant Sevva, offers what many say is the best view of Hong Kong. While getting up, close and personal with skyscrapers, you also get amazing views of Kowloon and the harbour. If you make reservations in advance, you may get to enjoy an unforgettable meal from the balcony. When picking your accommodation during your holiday here, a hotel in Kowloon such as Dorsett Mongkok, Hong Kong places you within close proximity to the city's best attractions.
