Victoria Peak is impressive both night and day. At 1,818 feet, it's the highest mountain in Hong Kong and offers the perfect view over the busy city. Though there is a tram that can take you to the top, you can also take several different walking routes as well.
You'll have an incredible view of Cape Town from the 2,200-foot summit, which should take you only an hour or two to reach. Take in the entire city below, as well as Table Bay, located just beyond the coastline.
At a 14,000-foot elevation, Pikes Peak has plenty of hiking to offer. At the top, take in beautiful views of lakes, tree tops, and shorter mountains. Reward yourself for the hike with doughnuts at Pikes Peak Summit House.
Take a stroll along the English hills, which get their white color from the chalk they are composed of. Take in the spectacular view of the coastline, and watch as the waves crash into the stark white cliffs below.
To capture this postcard view of Greece, you'll want to climb up the steep hills and windy roads of Oia in Santorini. This iconic town features small white houses interspersed by splashes of pink, blue and red.
Like the Arc in Paris, the Tower of Arnolfo in Florence, Italy, has steps leading to the top — about 400, in fact. Once you make your way up the narrow stairwell (it's thankfully less popular than some of the city's other landmarks), look out from the tower for a perfect view of the Duomo and Florence.
