Take the bus. It's cheaper and faster than the cable car and you will have better views. Try to choose a day not too polluted!

There is little point in visiting somewhere to take in the panorama if it's misty or drizzling rain as so often is the case in Hong Kong! So, it an ideal day presents itself, make this your day to do the Peak. Also, unless you like spending a bundle, avoid organised tours, and make your way there by various public... More

Pretty exciting going up in the tra, but watch for people pushing in.... We were almost first in line, but people pushed in in front of us and so we couldn't get a seat and had to wait for the next tram. We didn't go to the very top, which you pay extra for, because, typical of Hong Kong, it... More

I suggest taking the peak tram to the peak even the queue might be a bit too long. the view up there would be stunning for most people. there are more and more things and you can spend a whole day there. The 3D trick eye museum is the latest !

The 45 degree angled tram ride was cool but once up top, too many people and overpriced souvenir's but that's to be expected at one the major tourist things to do in HK. Be sure to take a picture of the same angle you are as you ride up!

If you plan to go, go at night. What an amazing view!! If you into photography, bring your tripod with you and you can make great pictures from HK at night. I took the train up to the peak, it was bit of a cue but it was worth the wait, it might be because it was CNY. You can... More

The tram ride from Central to the peak is quite incredible as it is a cable car that travels straight up the mountain. The tram is quite old fashion vehicle but is well maintained. The views on the way up are quite good and you get to see some of the houses, which are high rise apartments. Once you get... More

We purchased Red Bus tickets that has 3 tours around Kowloon /Hong Kong great value for money, one of the stops was Victoria Peak it very, very crowded to get on massive cues. The same happens at the top to get down far too many people

Although the Peak is generally reckoned to be a must-do activity when visiting Hong Kong, it's only really worthwhile on a clear day, and such days are apparently becoming increasingly rare due to air pollution from neighbouring Chinese mega-cities. If you are lucky with the weather, make sure go up early to avoid the crowds!
