The Peak Galleria is a leisure and shopping complex and a tourist attraction located at Victoria Gap, near the summit of Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. It includes a bus terminus for public buses run by New World First Bus and a green minibus route that serves the Peak. The complex is adjacent to the Peak Tower, another leisure and shopping complex, which houses the upper terminus of the Peak Tram. The shopping complex houses a number of eateries. It also has a free-entry observatory deck on level 3, which is larger than the one at the Peak Tower.

  • Another world famous location disappointed by direction of sunset, still worth coming for the night view though.
  • From here one can see the famous Hong Kong skyline with a spectacular night view, however, lying on the west are only mountain and sea view which is much less attractive. The sun is visible until it sinks below and behind the hills.
  • Visitors can catch a bus or take a tram from Central to get to the Peak.
  • Usually very crowded as one of the most visited tourist attractions in Hong Kong, but with patience it is not difficult to find a space for sunset photography on the observatory deck.
