Extremely long queues, you have to be really patient. Good view from the terrace at the top station if weather is good. You will easily spend half a day in the queue up, queue down and spending an hour upstairs. It's a typical Hong Kong attraction but I am not sure if it is worth the time.

The peak tram to the peak good was a good experience. But we didn't take the tram on this trip because it was very crowed, it may have taken more than one hour just to purchase the tickets then there was another line to take the tram given there were many group tours with advanced tickets.

If you don't mind waiting for a couple of hours in a que for a 5 minute ride up a hill then get the tram. Otherwise there are other ways to get to the top that cost less. The tram was crowded and the views going up didn't offer anything that you couldn't see when you were at the top... More

This is fun, but beware there can be long lines and it is very crowded. However it is worth the wait, and the travel time is less than 10 minutes. Everyone needs to experience this once in a life time.

Too short journey for 2 hours waiting. Make sure you have a lot of time before deciding to visit peak tram. I went at night so i can see all the light in HK and it was amazing.

It can get very busy at peak (ha, ha) times and you can wait over an hour to get on the tram. Expensive but worth it when you get to the top.

After queuing on the main road in a long line which very slowly moved, backwards and forwards, with no real information, we turned what we thought was the final corner, but no... again the line went on. Finally we reach the area to purchase the tickets, and guess what no one there to ask questions which was very disappointing! We... More

If you have never been on a funicular tram this is your chance to reach the highest point in Hon Kong and get the best view of the city. Usually crowded, the wait, like the ride, is not too long but a visit to Hong Kong without it is not complete.

One of the musts if you want to go up to Victoria Peak. But do book a trip up through a tour. Otherwise you will have to join the superbly long queue just to go up and a short ride.

The Peak Tram is a unique experience from days gone by. It's a fast trip to the top and the views are great. What you find when you get there is much more of a disappointment. So go for the ride and have a walk around, enjoy the view, some of the places to eat are fine but this is... 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.
