Short ride with tram uphill. 83HK$ or 10euros. Nice view on HK from the top. There are some souvenir shops and restaurants as well in the complex.

It gets busy after 11am, so plan your journey before then. If you can, get a seat on the right going up for the best views (opposite on the way down). It is bizarre to see buildings and trees a what seems like strange angles, but it is the tram that is at a steep angle.

It's worth the wait once you board the tram and start journey to the peak. Clean and well done station and as you climb see the mountain forest as well as skyline. Wonderful and not to miss at all by anyone travelling to Hong kong.

The Peak tram was so much fun going up, I can't believe how steep it is. The view from the top was absolutely breathtaking, even on a semi-cloudy day. It was nice to look around and have a walk on the trail nearby (lots of joggers and dog walkers) but on the other side of Sky Terrace was a cute... More

Finding your way to The Peak was easy as there are signpost almost everywhere in Hong Kong. Whether you visit on a weekday or a weekend, the queue will always be long. Because this is one of the must try experience while in Hong Kong. Once you are boarded on the tram, try to get a seat. There are 2... More

The Peak Tram Terminus takes roughly about 10 minutes walk from Exit J2 of the Central (MTR) Station. There is sufficient signage from the MTR Station, which will point you to the right direction of the Terminus. We were lucky as the queue wasn't too long and it was a sunny day. The ride up the peak tram is smooth... More

This is a bit of tourist trap but worth doing just for the views and the experience if you're indeed a tourist. I was there in December during the Christmas season but it wasn't busy and the queue was about 15 minutes. I was there in 2012 and it was eerie to notice that I could see through many vacant...

This place is awesome. A narrow gauge train help you to reach the top with amazing views, shopping & restaurants. A must see sightseeing in Honking.

We traveled the Peak Tram to and from the Victoria Peak on a Friday morning. It was a great experience. Not much wait for both ways (max 20 mins), but when we returned saw large crowds waiting to go up for the afternoon. We took MTR to Central and Exit J2 and waled to the Lower Tram Terminal (clearly sign... More

Two hour wait to go up, regretfully I took a bus instead. But when I found a similar queue for both tram and bus to go back down, I decided to walk. The Old Peak Path is kind of hidden behind some toilets to the right of the main viewing building, but it's an easy downhill walk back to town... More
