From zero to five hundred and something metres above sea level in a few minutes? Definitely not in Canberra.
Hong Kong is the third darkest city on earth, the sun just doesn’t get a fair go, and it’s weird. However getting up in the clouds is easy enough for the keen traveler with a few HKD in their back pocket. Buy the ticket, take the ride and fly into the heavens.
Most of the peak has $10-15mil houses all over it, and the top itself is just a massive pile of telecom towers, but just before the top is a room with a view that anyone can enjoy (for a price of course).
The peak itself is on the island & not the mainland, so I hope you don’t get seasick!
