Victoria Peak vs Sky100

If you want to experience entire Hong Kong from above, Victoria Peak and the Sky100 are the best options.

More about Victoria Peak

Victoria Peak is a 552 m (1,811 ft) high hill in Hong Kong, known by many names such as Mount Austin, The Peak, etc.

The Peak gets a lot of tourists who come for attractions such as The Peak Tram, Peak Tower, Sky Terrace 428, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, etc.

Even though both Sky100 and The Peak give you a bird’s eye view of Hong Kong, they differ from each other in several ways.

At The Peak, you can experience a fantastic Tram journey, Nature at its best, an Observatory and lots of fun activities.

At Sky100, you get a more urban experience fuelled by technology, for instance, the lightning-fast elevator which takes you to the 100th floor of the ICC tower in less than a minute.

Victoria Peak or Sky100: Do not choose between Sky100 and The Peak. Both offer a completely different experience, which is why it is a must to visit them both.
