Wait for a clear day if you can for the best view from the top. The tram ride itself only takes about 5 minutes each way but is very steep and an interesting ride. Cost is HK$40 return for adult. No need to take a tour there but get there early or late to avoid the bus tour queues. Waiting... More

You can take this tram ride to go up to the peak. It has its own charm and fun, taking the tram ride up to the peak.

Definitely recommend for children. Go early so you don't have to wait long to board a tram. Get a combination tram and viewing deck ticket so you can fully experience the view at the top.

Well organized. We did this as kids. It was great to come back 36 years later and do it again. The tram ride was fantastic. We sat on the right on the way up. Got great photos. Sat left side on the way down so others got an opportunity. A must do. Get there early to avoid long queue.

Go early or go late. The ride up to the Hong Kong peak is worth while. This is a very interesting experience and the low enterance fee that even gives access to the terrace is worth paying. Note that you will not be using the tram alone so be prepared to fit in the fully occupied car.

We were smart to book this experience as part of an organized tour, therefore we did not suffer the huge line to go up. Be warned: if you can help it, do not take the tram to go down, as it goes backwards and some people may feel sick. Overwhole, we enjoyed the ride a lot!

We only rode this down from Victoria Peak, having gone up in a tour bus, but it was an interesting way to finish our trip to the peak. You do not actually realize how steep the tramway is until you seem someone walking (climbing?) up or down the tram aisle about halfway down the mountain. After seeing the famous Hong... More

..otherwise queue can long and hot. Fascinatingly steep climb, but make sure you get a seat as it's very difficult to stand when the tram is at a steep angle
