Getting here was super easy, hop on the 15A bus from Central station and get off at the last stop (The peak). Didn't take the tram ride up as it was overcrowded (26HK Dollar for the ride), with the time waiting, I figure it would be better off with other transportation. The view from the peak was breathtaking, you get... More

Star of the visit was the tram and the journey up to the top. At the top are a mix of attractions, shops and eateries (I have to admit that I didn't try any of these). I rather thought that the tower was something of an eye sore on such a beautiful hill/mountain. I bought the ticket that gave access... More

Great views of the harbour and Hong Kong/Kowloon sky line. Great to do during the day but even better at night. Take the old train carriage to the top and cab it back down.

It is indeed really crowded, but you can find the best view here. It was also big entertainment area, there is a mall there and offers many restaurants. Getting here by tram was a real queue! But it will be paid off at the top of the peak. Oh and from the peak, you can see a place like old... More

Yes, the queue is long as this is the must do in HK (not one of). We started queuing around 4:30pm and made to the top in 30 mins on a Thurs. The service is super thoughtful, a free multi-languages interactive touch screen audio is provided, it's not only telling you the scenery you are looking at, also some cultural... More

A two hour wait for the tram ride up, so I took the bus. Then when I wanted to come back, same problem, for both the bus and the tram. I thought I was stuck there. But I thought 'to hell with this' and started walking - the old Peak path is sort of hidden behind some toilets to the... More

The tram ride (only about 8-10 minutes long) to the top of Victoria Peak was incredibly steep, but the surrounding views all around us were breathtaking. Shermone, our fabulous guide with Chris Rowthorn Tours, advised us which side of the tram to sit on (the right side) to have better views during the ride up to the famed Peak. We... More

Super great tourist spot, great views of the harbor and of the downtown lights. We went at night, highly recommend this as the lights are really pretty.

Definitely worth a visit but take the cable tram up the mountain that is fantastic, climb slowly up the mountain and see the city as you go. Once at the top, there are shops and restaurants . Many look down over the city and if it is a clear day it is great to watch the sun go down and... More
