If I hadn’t gone to Hong Kong I wouldn’t have seen the city’s highest located shopping mall – the Victorian Peak. Starting out as a viewing point on top of the hill, 552 metres above sea level behind Central on Hong Kong Island, the place soon expanded with bars, restaurants, cafés and shops until it was a proper mall. This seems to be a natural step for places in Hong Kong – whatever it used to be it always ends up as a mall.

At the end of the 19th century the peak got the tram route that today works as a tourist attraction within the real attraction.

Even if you don’t want to pay the 30 HKD to enter The Peak’s Sky Terrace 428 you get a great view from what is the highest observation deck in town.
