I have traveled to Hong Kong over 4+ times as to me this is the best most developing city in the world. Every time I arrive here the Peak Tram is on my list. This is the coolest experience travelling at an angle up through the cities, through and around houses. Its a strange experience. Once your at the top,... More

The views from the top are absolutely amazing. The ride itself has the most precarious inclination, makes the Great Orme look like a baby climbing frame. Fantastic, loved it.

There are other ways to get to the peak ...but everyone wants the tram so like the rest we too stood in the long line ...we waited for 1 hr my kids got really restless ...it was a disaster... There are no seat numbers as such they just group you and then you get in and grab a seat...luckily for... More

When you have to wait 40 minutes to get on this blasted thing (top and bottom), you know it has lost its charm. I should have stayed in the pub rather than pay the overinflated fee for a 5 minute climb. Then again this is 2015

After reading Tripadvisor we made the effort to get to the Peak Tram around 8am, where there was no queue and the tram was only half full. Cut to coming down two hours later and if the line was that long when we had arrived, we would have skipped the experience altogether. That would be a huge shame, because the... More

It's an exciting journey back which we took. After being at the peak at night it was a long wait in the queue to our way down. About 1 hour but it was worth it and we were on a virtual incline on our way down. A must do on your visit to Hong Kong.

I've been there twice and felt it is overrated since you can see the view of the city in other places. If you have a car then I would say drive somewhere to look over the city, if not then it is a good place to see it. The tram just takes you to the top of the hill and... More

Took the tram down from Victoria Peak which was very relaxing experience on a very hot day. Must do activity in Hong Kong even if you don't want to visit The Peak.

If you are in Hong Kong, try not to miss a trip on the wonderful Peak Tram. It's a really enjoyable and interesting experience.

We rode early mid-morning and the crowds were not great, also it was foggy. The ride is nice, interesting. Great way for a fun short ride to the peak, and the ever present crowd watching.

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.
