After we walked a little the day before through the northern part of the city, today we wanted to see the city from above. And this is best done from one of Hong Kong’s most famous sights: the 552-metre-high Victoria Peak!

Der Victoria Peak in Hong Kong
Victoria Peak is Hong Kong’s most famous mountain, with a height of 552 metres. Situated on Hong Kong Island, it is also the highest elevation of this island, but is clearly surpassed by the 958 meter high Tai Mo Shan located in the New Territories. Its Chinese name, Tai Ping Shan, means “Mountain of Great Peace”. The summit offers a wide view over Kowloon and large parts of the island of Hong Kong.
The view from Victoria Peak to Hong Kong
The detailed travel report to Hong Kong will be delivered. But we have already uploaded the pictures. If there are any specific questions about the pictures or destination, please post a comment at the end of the post.
The skyline of Central Hong Kong
After we went back by tram to the valley station “Garden Road Peak Tram Terminus”, we walked a little through the district Central, the financial and business center of Hong Kong.
Dinner at the restaurant Brotzeit
In the evening we had something delicious to eat in the German restaurant Brotzeit 🙂
Starbucks Global Icon City Mug of Hong KongWe are collecting the Starbucks Mugs from the cities and islands we visit on our travels. Unfortunately, not every city that has a Starbucks store with an own mug. But if the city has an own mug we like to collect them as a souvenir. We only collect city mugs from the "Global Icon Series", which was released in 2008. You can see our complete collection here: Starbucks - Our collection of Mugs from the Global Icon Series
Hong Kong has several Starbucks stores and also its own mug 🙂

Starting with our flight to Hong Kong (China), then on to Bangkok (Thailand), to the million metropolis Singapore, then into the jungle to the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Wat to Siem Riep (Cambodia), on to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and finally to the island of Borneo (Malaysia). An unbelievably fascinating journey with an incredible number of impressions and experiences.
