The Peak

The Peak is the highest point on Hong Kong Island with an elevation of 552m. It is extensively covered by country parks and walking trails yet most parts of it are easily accessible to Central by a 10-15 minute drive.

It is home to one of Hong Kong's top tourist attractions - The Peak Tower which can be reached by road or by the Peak Tram, a funicular railway with a terminus in Central. The Tower has a large viewing deck with panoramic harbour views and many shops and restaurants. Next to the tower is the Peak Galleria, a complex also containing many shops and popular restaurants.



Residential Blocks

Residential properties on the Peak are high-end, as the area is all low density housing. It all has a designated plot ratio of 0.5% of the site area or the same density as the existing building. The current trend in recent years is to build luxury townhouses for sale to owner occupiers. However there are still some older colonial style blocks which offer spacious well laid out floor plans and the majority have now been well renovated. In addition, there are some modern apartments and town houses held by corporate landlords and available on the rental market.

Schools

The German Swiss International School's (GSIS) main campus is to be found on lower Peak on Guildford Road. This is home to the entire secondary department and houses the majority of the primary from P2 onwards, while P1 and the kindergarten are in the Pokfulam campus. This school has an extensive school bus network over Hong Kong Island. The English School Foundation (ESF) primary school The Peak School is located on Plunketts Road. Since the ESF schools work on zones, this school accepts applications from all children with a Peak address and some parts of upper Midlevels. There also 3 international preschools on the Peak all in close proximity:

Healthcare

The Peak is also home to the Matilda Hospital, a private hospital rumoured to have rooms with some of the best views in the world from a hospital! It is located on Mount Kellett Road.



Transportation

There is a major transport terminus in the basement of the Galleria for larger buses, mini buses and also taxis. The NWB double decker route 15 goes from Central to the Peak and also minibus 1 which also goes to the Matilda Hospital as part of its route. In addition to being renowned for its low density living, larger properties and being one of the prime locations on Hong Kong Island traditionally popular with expatriate families, the Peak has a climate which is cooler in the summer months when Hong Kong swelters with high temperatures and humidity. However, in the spring time it can be prone to low lying clouds which can envelope it spoiling its famous views for some days.

Facilities

There are three supermarkets on the Peak, a Market Place (the higher end branding of Wellcome) in 100 Peak Road, a Park n Shop in the Peak Galleria and a Wellcome opposite GSIS on Guildford Road. There are 2 public parks on Mount Austin which can be reached by hiking up from the Peak Tower area. There is a lovely flattish walking trail around the Peak, popular with residents and tourists alike, which has stunning southerly views half way round, where this is a public park / recreation area, and the northern half of the trail has fantastic views over Central, Midlevels and the harbour. The Peak Galleria also has an ATM machine offering banking facilities.
