If Hong Kong is a city of jade during the day, it becomes a luminous pearl with a sea of lights twinkling in the streets after dark. Where is the best place to enjoy the multi-colorful night scene that encompasses Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour? Victoria Peak is a good location to view its night scene. 554 meters (about 1,817.6 feet) above sea level, the Peak is the highest point within Hong Kong and occupies the western part of the Hong Kong Island.How to reach Victoria Peak? Tourists can take the Peak Tram, a pleasant ride ascending the mountain. The tram has been in operation for over one hundred years, and to date, no accidents have ever occurred. Your journey aboard the tram will take eight minutes and upon reaching the summit you will see a seven storied building in the shape of a ship. This is the Peak Tower in which there are several attractions namely, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, and Sky Terrace 428.

Night View

Viewing Hong Kong at night is a must! The panoramic vista is one of the most beautiful night scenes in the world so a visit to the Lion Pavilion on the Victoria Peak is also highly recommended. Standing upon the pavilion and overlooking the Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula, a spectacular night view will unfold in front of your eyes. The Victoria Harbour is one of the world's busiest harbors and has a constant ebb and flow of shipping all year round. With row upon row of skyscrapers stand prominently on the Central which is the city's financial and economic hub. The most spectacular are the Bank of China Tower and the Central Plaza. The Bank of China Tower, with 72 stories soars skyward and is designed by an American-born Chinese architect Bei Yuming (Ieoh Ming Pei); with the bamboo-shaped outlook of the tower symbolizing that the Bank of China aspires to get better and better. The Central Plaza is a reinforced concrete building with 78 stories.

I'm afraid it is a little troublesome by public transport and the best way is taking taxis, which can save you a lot of time.
