The experience is OK, but be prepared to wait up to an hour on peak days to travel up to The Peak. You won't see much either owing to trees. My tip is to catch the bus up to The Peak as its very scenic and then get the tram down as the waiting time is much less.

Beat the long queue by avoiding the Chinese holidays, full moon and the hour before sunset. Go up in the afternoon - have a cup of tea or an icecream, then take a walk around The Peak (easy accessible trail even with a stroller - about 45 minutes walk) as the sun sets and the city lights up. It is... More

I am a Hong Kong resident and recently went with a friend to the Peak via the Peak Tram. We were waiting in line like everyone else, and were near the front of the que when the staff started letting in a few more people, to fill up the tram that was about to leave. The people in front of... More

We had to queue for an hour just to get the tickets for the ride and even after getting the tickets, we had to wait for another 20mins just to get on the ride which lasted for only 10mins. The view from the ride was brilliant but not worth it for the time spent queuing and the price that you... More

We decided to skip the line and hike up after reading reviews of people waiting 3 hours in the sun! We left early and dressed for sweat and made it to the top in 2 hours. We really enjoyed the top and would recommend it to anyone. Going down we used our octopus card and literally did not wait to... More

It's interesting means of transportation to the peak. Especially at some point of time, you'll be able to see the high rise building in tilted position.

The title says it all. Do your own research on the prices and benefits of the Octopus cards because the service from the staff there is practically non-existent. On 27 August my parents and I joined the queue (which seemed to be rather short, perhaps only three or four turns in the line) brimming with excitement. We had made an... More

Fun tram (separate from the other tram network) up to the top of Victoria Peak. Very very steep incline and the longest one I've ever been on (eg must be way more than double Paris's tram at Sacre Coeur). Kids loved it. Queue at bottom was only 10/15 mins, much better than other reviewers have reported.

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
