Jardine's Lookout offers expansive views of Hong Kong Island, with lush greenery, soaring skyscrapers and sparkling water. It's also a lesser-known vantage point than The Peak, so you'll be able to experience a one-of-a-kind vantage point without the large crowds blocking your view.

This drone image of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbour was taken from Jardine's Lookout.
First, I recommend taking a taxi to the trailhead or parking in the public lot near Wilson Trail - Hong Kong Parkview (22.258096, 114.197878). Then, follow the Hong Kong Trail Sec. 5 past Osborn Memorial until it turns into Hong Kong Trail Sec. 2. Reference the GPS coordinates and eventually, you'll reach Jardine's Lookout — it should be about a 22-minute hike directly north.
Launch your drone from the lookout spot and you'll be able to get a north-facing view of the island and harbour.
