I strongly recommend you take the number 15 double decker bus to the top and back down. It reminded me a little bit of the amalfi coast in Italy. Try to get a seat up top and near the front. At the top of the peak are spectacular views of the harbor. The plaza had some nice stores and pastry... More

We arrived just after 9am and walked straight onto the tram, for the best views sit on the right hand side of the tram on the way up and the left on the way back down. Decided to get the ticket that allowed us access to the view point as well, it included a good audio system that you could... More

Victoria Peak would be amazing to the eye if you did not have to deal with the smog. The shopping area is tourist central and everything is very expensive. It was nice to go up and see what everyone raves about but it was not an amazing experience.

Great trip up to the Peak in the tram. Lots of shops at the top and a good choice of restaurants. The less expensive restaurants are located just "outside" the main escalator area so if you just want a quick snack you don't have to pay a lot. We opted for Burger King (although I seldom frequent burger bars at... More

This is a must see attraction. Take the tram up and take a bus ride down. You will need to wait in line for the tram but it is worth it. The tram incline is really amazing. It is a Swiss built/engineered tram that goes up a very steep hill all the way to the Peak. At the top there... More

Up the tram, at an impossible angle, the Peak afford breath taking views across the island and the harbour. The mist kept rolling over the mountain and then clearing, affording differing... More
