The best way to access Victoria Peak is to buy a combined tourist bus and Victoria Peak ticket. Otherwise you are stuck in a long queue for transport to the top.

Don't miss going up to the Peak - especially if the weather is nice. You can see all around Hong Kong and really appreciate the diversity of the island. Check the times as we got up there and none of the cafes or restaurants were open, so plan ahead!

after several dozen trips to Hong Kong. I gave in and took the tram to the peak. having driven to the top before, I didn't see the point. I was mistaken. the ride up the tram is better than a Disney ride, and more interesting. the views for the peak are truly breath-taking. arrive early, as the lines build quickly.

We took in the view at night (past 7pm) to see the lights. It was suggested to take a taxi up to the peak instead of wait for the line ups for the tram up as we had children with us. If you still want to experience the tram, you can take it down (line ups were about 1hr or... More

Because Hong Kong is so small, buildings are closely built and at night, you get to see the light display of the city and what better view than to see it from the peak!

Make your way up to The Peak via the Tram for a spectacular view of Victoria Harbour. Don't forget your camera.

Offers a great view of Hong Kong. However, be prepared for the crowd whom will push n shove just to get a seat on the tram.
