We had a day with little planned so we jumped on the MTR from the Disney Resort and had a look. Easy to get to and not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. The tram ride up the hill was neat to experience. Once at the top the humidity was so high that the view from the... More

We went at night and it was worth it to go one way. It's fun riding up what seems to be impossibly steep track with seemingly gigantic buildings next to you. The perspective puts everything on crazy angles. It's quite cool. However, going back down once everything was closing was insane. The line took almost an hour and a half.... More

I didn't have any lines to wait in and took this amazing cable car to the peak. Can't believe it's been around since 1888. Views at the top are spectacular - with the normal weird stuff like Starbucks and Burger King available as well...

There's a list of things that one should at least try to do while in HK and the Peak Tram is one of them. Granted, there are other means of going up to Victoria Peak, but you should at least take the Peak Tram once - just to experience the steepest part going up while you see glimpses of the... More

Easy to find just follow the pink sign posts :) The trams operate day and night so it is worth going up both in the daylight and at night to get a different perspective on the city. Again, there are queues but they move very swiftly.

Riding The Peak Tram is the quickest and most scenic way to arrive at The Peak. The Peak Tram Lower Terminus is easily reachable by foot from the MTR in Central or by public transportation. The best way to enjoy the ultimate Peak experience is Peak Tram Sky Pass, offering you enjoyment of a trip on the famous Peak Tram... More

This is a 'must do', but I strongly suggest you arrive at opening time (maybe 8AM?) to avoid a long wait...like over an hour! The ride is fun, the views are good and you can finish it off by walking down the old road (more of a wide path) back to the start (maybe 45 minutes). Too bad that the... More

Fantastic way to get up to the Peak for amazing views of Hong Kong. On a Saturday at 8am, there was no line at all which made the experience better. The views at the top should be your goal, so if the line is long, take a cab. The views of the huge buildings on the way up are nice,... More
