Although Victoria Peak stands at a modest altitude of 552m, it is nonetheless a fairly steep mountain. From the summit, the view extends as far as the New Territories and the panorama is breathtakingly hypnotic at night, when the city blazes with neon lights. Since the beginning of colonisation, the wealthy business elite have chosen to live on the slopes of the Peak, which are covered with beautiful, colonial-style houses. A funicular has operated on the Peak's steep slopes since 1888. The short trip up to the Peak Tower, rising above the skyscrapers and Victoria Park, is one of the highlights of a trip to Hong Kong.
