We headed up the peak on the tram on the weekend which may explain why it was extra busy. We had to wait for around an hour to get up and maybe 30 minutes to get back down. If you do not want to wait then you can catch a bus or hike to the top, which we did also... More

Having been to Hong Kong twice before, this was the first I heard of the peak tram. That is because if extensive research in advance of this trip. We went to the tram station near Hong Kong Park around 2pm on a Sunday and the queues were spiralling around the corner In the 35C+ heat we would have been baked;... More

A must if you're going to the peak. Not overly pricey but not cheap. Great views over the city and a nice historic feel with the old-timey cars. Expect to stand in line for a while, both ways.

It is worth visiting once. Takes not more than 8-10 minutes to reach the peak. The view from inside the tram is nice. But I dont think it is worth to take the tram both ways. We took the tram both ways. Later I came to know that the bus journey is worth it. The tram meuseum didnt interest us... More

You gotta take the ride to believe it. Many people told me not to wait in those long queues. But it was worth the wait. Sitting on the right side of the tram, you could enjoy one of the best views in Hong Kong. The team goes up a steep hill. If you didn't get a seat, hold on tight.

The novelty of going 45 degrees is exciting but it is ruined by the queuing. The main attraction of the day is the peak. There are several other ways up that do not require any hectic queuing. I agree that it is a 'must-do', unfortunately, because of the novelty. But I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that once... More

Hiked all the way up to the Tram station from the Ferry and found what looked to be a 3 hour wait to ride. There are gypsy taxis who will take you the rest of the way for HK$200, quite a ripoff. I had ridden the tram many years before so blew it off and took a taxi back to... More

When you go to this place, be sure to reach very early in the day to avoid standing in long queues. We reached there about 10 AM and the ticket lines were already long. Since we were going with the red bus, we did not have to buy the ticket. The tram ride is magical. It goes at a very... More

Went up the peak on the tram, which is a must if you are in Hong Kong just for the experience, don't think I have been on anything so steep ! You feel like it's not going to make it in parts when it is nearly vertical ! the day we went it was raining so the views from the... More
