Why Lion's Pavilion at The Peak is special ?

Lion’s Pavilion is situated at a walking distance from Peak Galleria Shopping Centre. You can enjoy charming views of Hong Kong Island from this lookout point at The Peak. However, be prepared to face crowds as this vantage point is quite touristy and often frequented by tourists visiting Hong Kong.

What to explore at Lion's Pavilion at The Peak?

The outside areas around the Lion's Pavilion provide pretty much the same vista at no charge and are just a couple of minutes walk from the Peak Tram exit. If you want a "professional photo" of yourself with the famous skyline in the background, then this is where the photographers hang around.

There are a number of walking trails. The views are great in some places but the lush vegetation which has grown up over many years does obscure the view somewhat. It is a pleasant walk though and with much of it in shade its certainly an enjoyable thing to do on a really hot day.

Its not surprising that late afternoon and early evening is the most popular time to visit the Peak, with people taking the opportunity to combine both day and night views. If you have only limited time, taking the Peak tram ride from early to mid morning to avoid the longer queues that build as the day progresses.

Also called The Sky Terrace 428 is the highest 360째 viewing platform in Hong Kong to view city. It was in early November 2013, the weather was kind enough that the sky was clear and i gat to view HK City. It was Spectacular but windy!To get here, you need buy your tram ticket. Go to "The Peak Tram" centre at Garden Road. Try to get there before 9.00am (YES! 9.00am) to avoid loooooong queue. Buy your Peak Tram ticket ranging from HK40 to HK75 (Return) for adults and HK18 to HK36 for kids/senior citizen. While riding up to the Peak Tower with the tram for a few minutes, you can also enjoy the fabulous panoramic views of HK.When you reach The Peak Tower, there is a dazzling array of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues set against the beautiful backdrop of the city. PLEASE be advised not to purchase unnecessary 'over-priced' souveniers here, unless it is unique and not available elsewhere.There is also "Nature Walk" activity at the Peak, whereyou can experience HK's lush tropical forests and extensive birdlife. Winding through mountainous landscape, the walks are both visually exciting and easy to access.For information, as an alternative to go down from the Peak, you can take the taxi or bus directly to the Bus Terminal (Exchange Square) at Central. From here, you can take MTR train or Bus to your next destination.

It depends on places you visited before Hong Kong, but it's an awesome place, my advice check the weather forecast before heading there because that might change everything!
