The tram almost goes at a 50 degree angle. At some points it feels like going vertically up. It is incredible that they maintain such a system. It would require enormous power to propel a tram at a steep angle, that too with so many passengers. Surely worth it!

Catching the peak tram is a must do in Hong Kong. The views from the peak are amazing and as good viewpoint of a city skyline anywhere in the world.

If you are going to the top, there is no better way to get there. This unique and scenic route is perfect for sitting close to your woman and holding her hand.

You should visit the Peak when you visit Hong kong and the way to get there is to go from Central up the Peak Tram. I suggest that you have lunch or dinner up there and also walk around the Peak. The station is very convenienlty located that you can walk to from Central.

If shopping is not your thing, this is nice way to spend few hours in Hong Kong. Almost 45 degrees climbing uphill with a tram / cart. Spectacular view from uphill. There are also dining, souvenirs, "madame Tussaud" mini museum, and lots of things to do. Prices are quite high. Do not bother to pay extra for climbing 5m higher... More

What a great family outing. We took the 5 min star ferry trip from Kowloon over to the island & caught the 15c bus up to the tram ride. The queue to get on was about a forty minute wait but well worth it. The tram is an old fashioned style and the journey up is very steep but the... More

The hike from magazine gap road took 50 minutes on a hot afternoon. We had a good guide, showing us the highlights on the peak and the best restaurant. We had a late afternoon lunch at the Peak Lookout . A bit on the pricy side but worth the view. The ride down to Kennedy Road station took 10 minutes... More

The long line. Lots of squeezing together and waiting. Okay, maybe I like a more relaxing take. But having a nice dinner or drinks by one of many Hong Kong restaurants that offer spectacular views AND nice seating and dining experience was much more fullfilling. 1 time.

If you have never taken hillside trams, you should try it. If you have, this is just like any other except for the fact that you get pretty good view of the city on the way up. The queue is managed quite well though you can't stop the pushing from some rude tourists. It costs just a little more to... More
