The queues for the peak tram are well over an hour, my recommendation would be to take the bus up to the Peak and then take the tram back down (return queues are much shorter). It is not worth going up to the Peak unless it is a clear day.

I'm rating this attraction as average since the thrill and experience of riding the tram compensates the winding queue to buy the tickets. It took an hour or more for us to get the tickets. So if you have weak legs, limited time on your HK stay or can't take the long wait, i say you should try to come... More

The tram although is considered a tourist attraction, I find it as a really convenient way of going up and down from The Peak. If you avoid the moments with a high amount of tourists, you can be up or down in no time. Nice also to see the photos on it showing how was it long time ago.

I think the peak tram is a must-do in Hong Kong.

The must go. The tram going up such steep slopes is exhilarating. Plus, you see hongkongers walking uphill at the left side with housing along the hill slope. To the right, you get a magnificent views of the hongkong business hub. If you like, you can take a stroll down from the peak instead of taking the tram. Remember to... More

Its a very steep ride and a bit scary but worth a try if you have time. I didn't like the fact that they let people in even though the seats were fully occupied. We had to stand throughout the ride and it wasn't very pleasant. But the view is good.

For a wonderful view of the harbour, the easiest and cheapest way up is by the Peak Tram. Efficient, speedy and the kids love it! Ding! Ding! All aboard now!

We decided last minute to go to the peak - about 21:30. Best thing we could have done. Maybe we could have left an hour or so earlier but, no ques, relaxing time, and best of all the view at night can't be compared to the day time view. The skywalk was a must while up there.

@Horrible Horrible queues and crowds in 35 degree heat. The queue doesn't just stop at the entrance, it takes ages to get on the tram. also the shopping centre at the top of the tram is just awful. I would strongly recommend getting a taxi to the top and going in the other Shopping Mall opposite.

Literally etched onto the landscape and a must do at least once when in HK. Wind up The Peak first between the buildings and then out into the open with the odd spectacular view. Be prepared for long queues some times that can be horrible when hot as no shade and can be lonnnnng waits to take a ride. Ride... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
