The tram itself - the machine, the route - is an amazing experience. It gives "a lot in one" - a sense of history, great views on the modern city, a hint of being on an enjoyable roller-coaster :) We came early morning and left pretty early to escape the crowds and the lines, which otherwise are scary... We really... More

I'm torn between liking this a lot or just liking it enough. The tram ride is a cool, unique experience that ought to be experienced if you're planning on visiting Victoria Peak anyways. The angle at which you travel can be quite exhilarating. The buildings really do look crooked as you make your way up to the peak! It's a... More

This is a great way to take in the terrain of Hong Kong, and get to Victoria Peak. The tram was comfortable and quick, and the view at the top is stunning. Definitely recommend for any visitor to Hong Kong.

If you bought the ticket for Big Bus tour (the red line), the bus will drop you off next to the ticket center for the Peak. There will be some people trying to sell you the tickets for the Peak entrance at the street, make sure you buy them :) Otherwise the queue is huge! With this ticket you are... More

We had to stand up on the way up to the peak on the tram....which was not the most comfortable of experiences, lucky enough to score a seat on the way down....seats aren't' comfortable anyway! Very unlucky on our visit.....the weather was so poor, we could barely see our hand in front of us....not much chance of seeing the stunning... More

The queues are long, but there is no way escaping it. Private taxis would try to lure you, quoting exhorbitant prices - pay no heed to them, it's worth taking the tram. It reaches the top in a few minutes, which is enough for you to take some nice pics of the ascent; at the topic, the tram arrives at... More

This has become a Disney Land style attraction! Do not eat up there other than a quick coffe and possibly a muffin all else is Fast food Land with seating. And totally devoid of atmosphere. In the old days you could go up there on a Sunday for brunch now it is crowded even on weekdays. If you don't want... More

Going up to the peak via this incredible piece of engineering in a must when in Hong Kong. The views are spectacular, and the somewhat disorientating appearance of the buildings as you go up at that incredibly steep angle make for a unique experience-------but---be warned ,the crowds of pushing and shoving ill disciplined people can be upsetting----so go as early...

I have been visiting Hong Kong off and on during the last 7 years, but never experienced the Peak tram, though I had always wanted to experience it. I had been, in fact advising many friends to try it out but without the personal experience. Now, I have gone on it and can safely say, that you have not missed... More

There is nothing particularly special about the tram itself (other than it is a very fast way to the top of the Peak) but the view from the top on a clear day or night is one of the most iconic in the world.

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.
