Wow what a view from the peak. The tram ride was the steepest thing I've been on . We had a lovely clear day with no fog so great pictures

Of course the peak tram is the thing to do when you come to HK. The tram itself is good and the views are to die for, but at the top there is just another shopping mall so it's pretty difficult to spend much time up there unless you have lunch.

It's taken five visits to Hong Kong but my wife and I at last, have enjoyed a visit to Victoria Peak! Pros: Views are great but can go in an instant, no shortage of food options for hungry travellers (at sensible prices) and the stores up here offer a different range of quality goods than might be available around Central...

Everyone must go here to take the usual photos of HK. No need to pay to go to the observation deck. Walk along the track to get your photos or go into the other shop building that also has a viewing deck

My wife and I went on a day when it was rather cloudy and was raining. While as such we liked the place, we couldn't really enjoy the views this had to offer due to it being cloudy. The train ride up was good, and as such it had some good places to shop in the building at top. I... More

Rather crowded but worth riding the tram and going up the escalators to see the views. Very good free interactive audio guide at the top. Plenty of places to eat and shop at the top if you want to.

Going up to The Peak on the funicular is the only way to do it really, but this time we took a taxi because we had a push chair and didn't fancy the crush on the funicular. The view of Victoria Harbour is spectacular, but the shops at The Peak are mediocre. We go up there to eat at Bubba... More

The ride up the tram is really cool. The slope is pretty steep. View from the top is good. Went on a hazzy day and view was restricted.
