Visited just last week. It was a very cool place. Wizzing by the buildings that look like they are side ways. Beautiful views of Hong Kong/Victoria Harbor below. Great shops and restaurants on top. Highly recommend.

Home to millionaires, the Peak is everything it claims to be. Glamorous, gorgeous and stunning. The train ride up and down is a fun experience too.

We loved it up there, the views are fantastic. It was a little hazy (when is it not in HK?), but we still got great views of the city, TST, Kowloon and more. We also saw quite a few birds. We first went to the bottom of the tram stop on a Sunday afternoon, but the queue was over an... More

I know its a cliche but this attraction really is a "must do" especially on a clear day. No photograph can do justice to the magnificent views over Hong kong harbour and kowloon beyond. Take the bus, tram, taxi or car they are all catered for. Yes it is commercialised but that is reflected in the modern facilities and dining... More

The funicular railway up to the Peak is good in itsself, the tacky shopping at the top is as to be expected from location with such a view. The view is super. Watching the sunset is magic. The city transforms in front of you.

Tram ride was fun and educational for kids. The views were great and the interactive info platform on the top was good. The shops and restaurants were average

We failed - this our first attempt, unless you get their early, be prepared to wait a long time 2+hours. Instead we found a bus that took us to the top which was quite nice- got a good view of the happy valley etc. The bus drivers do a great job navigating the narrow roads. Nice walk back down if...

Have a wonderful view of Hong Kong from the top. Take the venerable Peak Tram up there as your first experience. Then walk around, have lunch in one of the many restaurants. In the afternoon, visit madame Tussaud and slowly get your way down. You can also stay up there (which we did) and see the city changing from day... More

A trip to Hong Kong is not without a trip to the Peak for an expansive view over the Hong Kong skyline and its harbour. Although a little hazy on the day, the view was second to none. A number of eateries and shops are located at the peak, with you being spoilt for choice. I would recommend taking a... More
