The best tram ride. Love the view from the tram. We lived in Hong kong for 5 years used it every time when we had visitors. The best way to come down from the peak is to take a minibus. It gives you a different view of the peak.

The Peak Tram experience is one that shouldn't be missed, at some stages going down the very steep slope, you don't even feel you are upright .. Just a hint if you don't like cueing, catch the bus up to The Peak and ride The Tram down. Otherwise there can be very long cues at the main entrance..minimal cost and... More

Make the effort to ride this tram to the top of Hong Kong. This is a fun ride on a unique tram that is truly part of HKs charm. there is a nice walking trail around the peak as well

One of my favourite attractions of Hong Kong. The ride up offers amazing views and some behind the scenes looks in mansions and streets. Well organised and the wait is not too long if you go early.

We caught a taxi to the Peak and spent time walking the Peak paths to overlook the harbour below. After spending time looking around we caught the Peak Tram back down, this was a great way to beat the huge queues waiting to get on the Peak Tram. Make sure to use your Octopus card.

Brilliant ride and should go for the tram. The ride of the tram is too good. Post the tram ride, once you enter the Sky Terrace 428 also known as Peak Tower, one can see the view of the city at 360 degree.

Yeah it IS crowded. But so is EVERYTHING in HK. If you can't handle how crowded it is in this tram, you will start crying once you are on top of the peak and all the tourists and people are poking their selfie sticks into your selfies and your eyes. I guess the fact that the tram can get pretty... More

This is just too crowed -- it is part of the standard package for mainland Chinese organized tours, not worth the wait. Take a taxi.

The Tram can be crowded and uncomfortable in peak hours, but it beats walking any day. I don't even know if that's an option, at least not for 99% of the people. The view atop can be quite windy but is absolutely magnificent. It's a must do.

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.
