Common term in Hong Kong for Victoria Peak, a mountain top area on Hong Kong Island known both for its extraordinary views and its extraordinary real estate prices.

The Peak is accessible from the Central district by a tram that is pulled up the mountain by a cable. From the north side, one can look down on the skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island and also look across Victoria Harbor to the Kowloon Peninsula. There's not much to see to the south except vegetation and the South China Sea.

The tram drops visitors off at a restaurant and shopping center. The center used to cater to expensive shops but there is a trend toward less pricey establishments. According to the South China Morning Post, this is due to a larger percentage of visitors coming from mainland China.
