A must see if you visit in Hong Kong. Its my second visit on this chinese territory and my 1st time at The Peak. Its advisable to book online for your tram ticket as you will avoid long queues for just buying your ticket. Best time is sunset till evening as you can see the sunset and Hong Kong's skyscraper's...

The ride up to the peak using the century old tram was exhilarating and fun!! The view of Hong Kong city from the peak was simply breathtaking. We enjoyed the whole experience very much!!

The views from the peak are just magnificent but unfortunately since our last visit in 1992 it has become very commercialised.

This is certainly a must-see, and the night view is gorgeous, but the lines are just horrendous. I would recommend going early or buying advance tickets (which we didnt- next time!). There are some good (western) restaurants inside the Peak building for dinner, we had a good view from our table at Bubba Gumps.

The queues were crazy, if your standing in the sun expect umbrellas in your head. They overcrowd the peak tram so half the passengers are standing which isn't easy when you are going up a steep incline. At the top the view is spectacular. Other than that it is just shops and a few restaurants up there, then a massive... More

When we went there it is very foggy. So I wasn't able to enjoy the view. However, there is an area in the mall (I forgot where exactly) that sells trinkets and other things like bag, scarf, etc. The queue for the Tram is long. Maybe, you'll wait for 30-45 mins. Another thing that I didn't like (that is an... More

Took the young teens to the Peak and also went to Madame Tussaud's . The queue was long to get up there but when we got there it was less crowded. We were lucky and had a clear day - so we saw Hong Kong in all it's glory!! Lots of places to buy a snack or eat and certainly... More

Definitely get there early to avoid the huge queues. The tram takes you up to the small shopping centre and viewing platform. You can walk up to the peak but with the heat and humidity it wasn't an option for us. Fantastic views and the audio, offered in many languages was very informative and I thought a must do to...
