The open-air Sky Terrace 428 is located on top of The Peak Tower with an altitude of 428 meters above sea level, hence the number 428 is in the attraction’s name. It is the best place to enjoy the spectacular views from The Peak not only to the fact that the Sky Terrace 428 is the highest outdoor viewing platform in Hong Kong, but also that you are able to enjoy an unrivaled and unlimited 360 degree views of this amazing city. On one side, you are able to admire Hong Kong’s architecture, densely populated ocean of skyscrapers and the busy Victoria Harbour. On another side, you can experience another side of Hong Kong by having a view of the outlying islands such as Cheung Chau Island, Lamma Island or Lantau Island. The views can be enjoyed at any time of the day – be it in the morning, afternoon, evening or night.
Especially at night the Sky Terrace 428 is a popular place to go and offers an amazing experience when the skyscrapers switch on their advertisement boards and illuminate their lights. On clear nights, you are even to able to watch A Symphony of Lights from the Sky Terrace 428. Although, you are able to see the sparkling and glittering lights as well as the laser beams of the Symphony of Lights show, we highly recommend watching this event at the Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront Promenade (Victoria Harbour) since it is more enjoyable with music.
Insider Tips: In case you want to enjoy the night views from the Sky Terrace 428 we would recommend taking a wind jacket or light sweater with you since it can get windy and a little bit cooler especially at the evening hours.
