TAITUNG, TAIWAN (TraNews) – It is the night that makes the jewel of the Orient shines out of darkness. When night falls, throngs of tourists from around the world would be drawn to Victoria Harbor, Avenue of Stars and Victoria Peak.

With an altitude of 552 meters, Victoria Peak is the highest mountain on Hong Kong Island, and it is also an optimal location for spectacular aerial views of the city and its harbor. No wonder the Peak is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong.

The best ways to reach the top of Victoria Peak are by the Peak Tram or by bus. The Peak Tram is the cable railway that brings passengers up from the Central District. Passengers in the tram can be expected to overlook the breathtaking view of Victoria Harbor. Getting there is quite a fascinating experience. It is so steep that the buildings along the way look like they are leaning.

Furthermore, visitors are strongly advised to get to the Peak as early as possible before dinnertime. They may get the chance to enjoy the world-famous “Symphony of Lights.” The lighting show has been awarded the world’s largest permanent light and sound show by Guinness World Records, featuring 44 skyscrapers and key buildings on both sides of the Victoria Harbor. Accompanied with laser multimedia, decorative lighting and musical effect, this marvelous show reveals the vibrancy and glamorous night vista of Hong Kong.

How to get there:
The Victoria Peak
1. Take the Peak Tram from the Lower Peak Tram Terminus on Garden Road (Bus 15C from the lay-by outside Central Pier 6 or walk from MTR Central Station Exit J2).
2. Bus 15 from Exchange Square Bus Terminus (MTR Hong Kong Station Exit D)
3. Green minibus 1 from MTR Hong Kong Station Public Transport Interchange.
