We took a taxi up and enjoyed the ride down from the Peak in the tram. Everyone try's to get in the first tram. Suggestion go all the way to the last to find a seat. Most people won't take the time to do that. Plus you get a great view going down.

Itd really cool ride a tram. Its very hilly when you go up. More closer to top you can see very nice view on the right window. View on Hong Kong Center. The tram is old so when you drive can back to the past:)

This gave me a lovely feel of the older days in China. Everywhere along the tram station is pictures and historical news and information. The ticket buying is fairly simple and easy and clear especially for tourist as everything is in English. Please note that the station is quite full at most times with visitors, so do not go if...

so-so, just a transportation to go to The Peak. You can see a part of HK from this, but better do it at The Peak.

Good experience and the view from the sky terrace is worth it. The complimentary headphones & commentary at sky terrace was informative. the shopping centre next door in the peak was however lacking in many ways.

Fantastic views - unbeatable really and a must see while in HKG. Very historic as dates back to 1888 and at that time it must have been an engineering marvel. However the line to come back down again was so bad and would have taken over 1.5 hours that we took the bus back to Kowloon so if you are... More

I want some of what everyone who rated this is on. It's just a tram, 5 minute journey that involves hours of queuing. Save yourself the time and get a taxi (touch more expensive, you'll be up & down in no time though. Is hours of queuing worth 5 bucks?) or bus. Bring lots of lube if you intend on... More

Classic Hong Kong experience. Take the time to do it - you will not regret it! We wanted to do it on a Sunday but were put off by the queues! Pick a day during the week and you won't wait long. The ride is still awesome!

Did this trip 25 years ago and wanted to take my family. Ideal way to visit the Peak. Sit on the right hand side on way up for best views. Queues can be very long so plan your visit otherwise you waste an hour or so waiting in line.
