Cheap but great experience! Try getting there early in the morning because the queue goes for ages. Also, but a ticket that allows you to go all the way up to the viewing terrace, it doesn't cost much more but it's definitely worth it!

The peak tram is a great way to get to Victoria Peak! It's a steep ride but the view is worth it! Would recommend this to anyone!

Brought my fiancé and a married couple through the Peak Tram to get to the Peak for a little hike. This is such a treat, being at such a sharp angle on the tram going up the mountain. Nice views along the way as long as you sit on the right hand side going up the mountain. Great value for... More

The tram has an interesting long history. It's exiting with each new view it makes us arrive at... You definitely need to do this twice, one in the bright day light and another on a Friday / Saturday well lit city night! It was too cold on the peak on a night in the month of Feb, turned our lips... More

The ride is really nice, trains are nice, can get really crowded so if you don't get there early expect to wait a bit... actual ride is somehow short but for me was actually good because I wanted to see other places of the city and this certainly helped me to achieve that. So if you don't have much time... More

nice to experience an old tram with a history to it. Sit on the right when going up to get a better view. Although line to ride the peak tram can get fairly long, i think its a must to experience at least once. Come early to avoid super long lines.

Established in the late 1800's, the peak tram is iconic for hong kong and a must see. Encased in history, it is the fastest way to reach the summit of victoria peak from central. When the tram began to go almost 30 degrees incline upwards I reflected on how old it was and how difficult it must have been to... More

Love the whole experience of going up the tram. Remember to sit on the right of the cabin (Nearest to the door). You get a better view of the city while it is traveling up.

The tram is fun but is really a means to an end...the view at the top. Arrive early or off peak to avoid queues...give yourself plenty of time to take in the vista...

Fantastic views from the top, a great experience. the ride is quite steep and takes you to Peak Tower where there is some shopping opportunities. Weather in July can be variable.
