(Strictly not quite on the top of a mountain ) Lots of restaurants at the top and many people spend more than a couple of hours there . The escalators inside are also very interesting and seem very open and airy although very safe.
The history of the tram is remarkable how it has remained a famous attraction. Well worth the sometimes long queues to get on.An exciting ride with great views at the top. Best traveled on clear days
An icon of Hong Kong and a must do. It is the best way to see the harbor and an easy way to visit both sides of the city.They run every few minutes during peak times and it is easy to get tokens or use an octopus card.Used by the commuters as well as tourists.

A different place if you like something a little quirky. It is signposted from the bus station but the entrance is actually behind the shopping mall. You may have to ask directions.
A very old temple set in a area near the top of the Mid level elevators.Used by local residents, who remember their loved ones by burnng large coils of incense which burn slowly from the roof of the temple.Some really interesting wall and door panels. Worth a visit if you use the elevators.
A lovely hidden bay set about 45 minutes from Shau Kei. Lovely clean beach with umbrellas and deckchairs to hire. Very picturesque. They are a few restaurants which vary in price to the position. Those nearest the beach more expensive, depending on a lunch, dinner or just a snack. There are plenty of shady places to sit and watch the waves. The sea seems to get deeper quickly. Take a local bus or a first bus from Shau Kei which drops you off at the beach. You have to go to the bus station to get the return one.There are a couple of walks one to the rocky outlet which would make a good place to take a picnic with great views.
