Nice old way to reach The Peak inclination is outstanding and it is kind of scaring to climb that mountain with that tram. However, worth the trip

We were very lucky to get a clear day and so the view from the top was just brilliant. The trip up and down is very engaging, but you must be prepared for a long queue at both top and bottom. I recommend that you pay out for the Sky Pass, which allows you to get right to the top... More

Fun way to get to the top, some parts are very steep and you do wonder if its going to make it. Busy day and a bit of a wait and when we get on it is a bit over crowded.

Jam packed but the view is tremendous. You really think it is too steep but somehow you get to the top.

Yes, it may be a huge tourist attraction , but a must do when in Hong Kong. Try to go early in the morning to avoid the crowds Once at the top go off walking, there are so many spectacular views.

This tram is the ride you take when going up to Victoria's Peak. Loved it since it is a very fast ride with wonderful views on both sides.

This tram takes you back in time as well as up the hill to the Peak. Be sure to get a seat, as part of the way the incline is really, really steep. The lines can be truly long, so try to find out when the busiest times are and avoid them. Will your trip to Hong Kong be complete... More

We received a free pass from BIG BUS TOUR that we could use for 30 days. You have to exchange across the street at the BIG BUS stand before standing at the Peak Tram line. Lines can be long especially on a clear day. I recommend staying on the BIG BUS for Aberdeen or Stanley Hop-Offs. Use your Peak Tram... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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.
