THE PEAK

PUBLISHED ON Sep 25, 2016

The Peak, as its name suggest, is the highest point on Hong Kong Island. It is covered by country parks and walking trails. Most parts of it are only 10 – 15 minute drive to the business district Central. It is home to one of Hong Kong’s top tourist attractions – The Peak Tower that can be accessed by road or by the Peak Tram, a funicular railway with a terminus in Central.

The Peak has only low density housing which are all high-end. A number of modern apartments and luxury townhouses are built and held by corporate landlords recently but there are still some older colonial style blocks which offer spacious well laid-out floorplans and the majority have now been well renovated.
The most expensive sale of a Hong Kong property was a house at 22 Barker Road, on the Peak, reported by South China Morning Post in August 2015, sold to Alibaba founder Jack Ma for HK$1.5 billion.
