If you are going to use the Peak Tram I would suggest you arrive early. We arrived around noon and the queues were long. We didn't have to wait to buy tickets as they accept the Octopus card, but the queue to actually get on the tram was horrible. Everyone wants to push into the queue and get to the... More

when visiting HK going to the peak is a must see. You have amazing view of all the back of the island. My suggestion is to go up near sunset so you can see the sun going down and the amazing HK lights turning on. The mall itself has several stores, not really interesting, and many restaurants for all kind... More

My husband and I spent four days in Hong Kong on our way to London. We took the Peak Tram so that we could visit Victoria Peak. We found it to be a really enjoyable ride and a lovely way to get tou our destination. During one part of the journey the track is particularly steep and that added a... More

Okie! It's a transport that brings you from Point A to Point B. A bus or taxi could do the job just as well, and I believe most of the locals would opt for that. Ugh! the super rich probably drive or get chauffeured on their Rolls Royce, Mercedes, or Jaguar, when they leave or return to their villas on... More

It is something you must do in Hong Kong. Visit the Peak by taking the Peak Tram. True you can take a bus or taxi, but the 120 year old funicular is an experience. The way it climbs up the very steep slope is fun, it is just something you need to do. Beware - there are long queues if... More

traveling via the peak tram can save time despite some of the queues that form because taking the bus, which i actually prefer coming down, takes longer due to traffic and stops. however the tram also costs double what the bus costs. you also may not get a coveted front seat on the tram. the views obviously are best from...

We thought that going up to the Peak in the evening might mean fewer crowds - we were wrong. We waited in a queue to buy tickets for a LONG time - it would certainly have been well over an hour - to be jammed into a further waiting area, to be jammed into a crowded tram, to have to... More

From the excitement that crowd has when getting to the tram, you get a sense that this is basically a cho cho train for adults. Its definitely unique. But the crowd to get a seat in the tram is just crushing.

I took the tram to the Peak on a cloudy day and could not enjoy the beauty of the city as I should have. The feeling of travelling the tram was interesting but also thrilled because it's steep. I thought of the movie "final destination" sometime. Up on the Peak, there're 2 plazas with decks for city view (really, I... 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.
