Are you getting bored in Hong Kong? Especially for those couples who go out with each other every weekend, your boyfriend is probably running out of ideas. Fear not, Hong Kong has a lot of good places for couples, especially now that there are very few tourists at the scenic spots. Now is the best time to go to tourist attractions! “Victoria Peak”, one of the best places for couples in Hong Kong, is known as a tourist hotspot. Hong Kong people seldom go to Victoria Peak to enjoy the stunning scenery of Hong Kong. On the coming weekend, you may go to the top of the mountain with your spouse or girlfriends, and you may have a completely new experience!
Good place for couples | Peak Tram
Ride the historic Tram to the top of the mountain
Peak Tram has a history of more than 100 years. It takes about 8-10 minutes by tram. It climbs from 28 meters to 396 meters above sea level. From the dense forest, you can gradually see the scenery of Victoria Harbour. The scenery along the way is amazing! More than 6 million visitors come through each year. You may climb the peak by tram from the Tram Station on Garden Road in Central. The Peak Tram time is 7am-10pm, with scheduling of every 15 to 20 minutes. You can buy tickets on site or online.

A good place for couples | Tram View Cafe
Tram View Cafe is actually not in the Victoria Peak range, but it is next to the Garden Road Tram Station in Central. It is most suitable for couples who are in front of the peak. There are few choices for restaurants at the peak, most of which are chain stores. It is better to have a light meal at the Tram View Cage before going up.
