Living in The Peak
Victoria Peak - known locally as The Peak with an elevation of 552 m (1,811 ft) – is a famous residential and tourist district with a history of exclusivity and luxury, having attracted European expatriates in the early 19 th Century who preferred its more temperate climate, reaching their homes via sedan chairs until the famous Peak Tram was built in 1888.
Home for many affluent and successful Hong Kongers, it provides some of the Island’s most luxurious free-standing Colonial-era homes alongside more modern developments. The highest hill on the Island, The Peak commands impressive views over Central, east towards Causeway Bay, Victoria Harbour and south-west to Lamma Island.
