I would call Hong Kong’s skyline one of the top five in the world for beauty and drama. I never get tired of its combination of hills, water, steel and optimism. Every year there is more to see, but it is more difficult to see because of increasing pollution. This lookout on Victoria peak behind the Central district is the most popular, for obvious reasons. This particular evening was one of the clearest I’ve ever seen there. I was lucky, and so are you.
Less well known on Victoria Peak are the hiking trails that wind through the forest, here and on all the peaks of Hong Kong. Well-maintained, they allow you to walk for hours and forget you are surrounded by a crowded metropolis. (Price Schedule E)
