Whilst in Hong Kong everybody should go to the "Peak" for its views. You can drive up or take a taxi, however the best way is to take the tram. The ride is not for the faint hearted it is steep, but you are rewarded with great views.

You will kick yourself if travelling to Hong Kong and not do the trip to the peak by Tram. The views are stunning and is a great family outing.

The queues are quite long but it is worth it. I've been on the Peak Tram numerous times and each time, it's an event. If it is your first time in Hong Kong, this is a must go to tourist attraction! The angle in which the tram travels up the Peak is impressive and the views are stunning. Alternatively if... More

Although the line is long, and many feel that it is far too expensive; I feel that a ride in the Peak Tram is a necessary, especially when visiting Hong Kong for the first time. The views are something special and really gives such a unique perspective as you climb up the hill to the peak. It's like getting a... More

Yes long queues in the heat............. yes only cash payment which is a pain. Did this years ago........long before the flash tower and tacky shops have moved in so it has a lot of the charm but I guess you have to do it when in HK..... for a great view over the City and Harbour.

This is a cool, fun way to get to Victoria Peak. We did the ride this time as it was included with our Big Bus ticket (recommended) and the extra good thing about that was that we had priority access and didn't have to wait in the super long queue to get up there.. The tram us quite crowded and... More

It is clear from other reviews that timing is everything with the Tram. Get it wrong and it is lots of waiting in long queues, get it right as I did and you buy your ticket and on you get. The views are amazing, the angle of climb is steep. In UK terms it really is not an expensive mode... More

Over twenty years of riding the Tram to the Peak in Hong Kong has never been boring. The whole experience is well organized with the cars and track always in good shape. This time we rode up at mid-day. When we arrived at the peak, a negative occurred. All passengers when disembarking the Tram had to walk downhill to the... More

Doing "The Peak" is a must. A great experience - wonderful quirky railway (you can only wonder at the feat of engineering it must have been when it was first built) with the reward of fantastic views from the top....not just over the northern part of HK Island and over to Kowloon, but also southwards to the quieter, less populated...

Take the bus. It's much cheaper and it doesn't take that much time. Tram has a long queue so your time is running out because of it. But it's still an experience, so if you're curious just do it.

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.
