Boarding the unique hill tram reminds me of going up Penang Hill in Malaysia but Hong Kong's tram is much nicer, modern, well maintained & comfy. The set back is the crowd in the lower station, packed like sardines & hardly could move an inch. During the ascension, there were nice homes & gardens to admire which gradually transformed into...

Good place to take visitors. The peak tram is expensive and usually requires a long wait. I find taking bus number 15 from central ferry terminal to be a cheaper and more enjoyable experience. Also on the top, if you are up for walking then take the loop trail (I think its is more than 1.5 miles long). It's flat... More

Simply exilerating and facinating, can't believe we actually traveled here from the other side of the world. It's worth it.

We waited for over a hourto get on the tram and bought a return ticket.The queue up to boarding was orderly, but as soon as the boarding started it was a scrum and quite frankly dangerous Couldnt face thecqueue again to come back down-We got a cab !

Everyone has to see Victoria Peak and the views-- it is the oven ride to the top that is almost unbearably hot with too many people in a "sardene can"

Of the several visits to The Peak, this was one at night. The view was fabulous and the lights gleamed from everywhere. We decided to taxi up and down, which was a wise idea considering the waiting time for the peak tram. A must do when in HK. Don't forget to take a selfie with the HK skyline behind you.

What a view! You can see both Hong Kong island and Kowloon, along with small ports and former Kai Tak airport. Skip the tram because you can't see the view during the tram trip anyway and the line is long, but take Uber or a taxi to the top.

It's definitely worth. Beautiful view from the city. Good dining and shopping options. I'd recommend to take the tram to get there. It didn't take me too long to buy ticket and wait for the tram but I think it can get crowded sometimes.

Bus 15C can be taken from IFC mall to the peak. It view was spectacular although it was a little humid during summer. An one way peak tram can also be taken when going down. Tip: Take the bus up to the peak unless you are willing to queue for the tram that goes up. The last time I waited... More

Good views of the city, but a tourist trap. Not worth the money to go up here. But go ye up to fit in a day the weather is clear, otherwise you see nothing.
