Hong Kong is often called the New York of Asia, although, the number of skyscrapers in Hong Kong is even more than in American cities. Hong Kong consists of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories and a number of small islands. In 1997, the city was returned to China from the UK. After this, Hong Kong was awarded with a special status in China. Hong Kong skyscrapers simply amaze visitors with their magnificence and gorgeousness, especially in the evening, when they are lit beautifully. However, besides them the city has much to see and many interesting places to visit.
Victoria Peak is the highest point in Hong Kong. From here tourists will be able to enjoy the panoramic view of the entire city. This landmark attracts millions of tourists every year. The best way to get to the very top of the peak is to take a special tram that leaves from the city center every 10-15 minutes. The trip lasts approximately 7 minutes. The last part of the journey is particularly exciting - the tram overcomes the steepest ascent. The top of the peak is the location of the recently completely renovated Peak Tower . The tower has the shape of a Chinese pan.
