As residents and careful visitors may know, the main difference between the view from The Peak Galleria and the view from the adjacent and more popular The Peak Tower is the price of admission. Entrance to the terrace level of the Peak Tower costs $45 HKD (or $5.80 USD), as of June 2014. Entrance to the observation deck of The Peak Galleria is free, even though the Galleria’s top deck is lower than the Tower’s top level. Despite differences in geometry and height, anybody can have an excellent view of Hong Kong Island below, across Victoria Harbour and beyond to Kowloon and The New Territories.
I made the photo above from The Peak Galleria on 19 June 2012. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
