Yes, it is good experience. We choose the most front seat while going down the hill to experience something. Well, not so amazing, but great though.

We didn't know what to do in Hong Kong, so we decided to go to the Peak and see the view. When we arrived at the tram line, it didn't seem too long, my brother asked and someone said it was about 45 minutes. A lady walking by was selling tour bus tickets which let you skip the line, but... More

We went to the Peak Tram on a weekday. We planned to reach around 9.30am but managed to reach only at 10:30am. But inspite of the delay, we had a wait time of only 5-6 mins, that too since we decided to wait for an empty tram since we were first in the queue. On the way back also, we... More

To put it simply, Hongkongers love it!! This is the best way to reach the Peak where people flock for an awesome, bird's eye view of the city. The steep or the gradient is mind-blowing, higher than the San Francisco's cable car. But if you have experienced the wonderful cable cars of SFO, you may not like this version. Come... More

This is a great journey to the Peak. I recommend get there early before it gets busy, the queue can be very long. The climb is steep and lasts a few minutes The views out when you get gaps are amazing. It does get disorientating when the apartment towers appear to be standing at 45%!. Watch your bag as it...

If you are going with your children or your old age parents or grandparents, do not take this tram. There is no proper crowd control. With 2 entrance no wider than 80 cm and a herd of crowd trying to squeeze to get into the entrance, really some unfortunate accidents bound or already happen before. There is no system to... More

A visit to The Peak when in Hong Kong is one of the highest rated travel "must do's". Unfortunately the tourist authoritities seem to know that and therefore the experience is one of "line 'em up and pack 'em on". The queue for the funicular can be in excess of 3 hours and by the time we discovered that (a... More

worthwhile to get some incredible views of HK on the way up. It can get very crowded, specially on the weekends so try to get there early.

Why waiting for 1 or 2 hours whereas there is no queue with bus#15 direct to the peak for 10.6 HKD, and taxis. 1h30 waiting time expected I gave up after waiting 5 min and seeing the cattle.

The peak team is a piece of Hong Kong's heritage as in the past it was the only connection up to the peak. Best advise is to visit early on a morning and use the tram to avoid queues and enjoy the trip up and the views that you can see. Also at peak times the tram is so full... More
