Avoid if you can- full of fast food and tacky souvenier shops and no easy way out! When alighting from the Peak tram there is no signage to outside where the best views are- you feel trapped! After about 10 minutes going up and down escalators we eventually found our way out and took in some tremendous views around the... More

I read the reviews before we got here, but I thought it seems a pity to get to the top of the peak then not go the extra 30 meters, "to be on top of the world". So we paid the HG$40 each to get to the top observation deck. I personally thought it was worth paying that bit extra,... More

Don't let the location (right after you leave the Peak Tram) fool you - this is a shopping mall, disguised as a touristic attraction. Make sure not to go up the escalators to its top, as it's useless. You can have a wonderful view of the city from the peak itself and you don't need the extra 30 meters of... More

Usually when you enter a theme park or ride, you will exit via a souvenir shop. This place does the reverse when you enter the souvenir shops first from the Peak tram, even before you go to take in the views at The Peak, the only reason why you are here. They don't even warn you that when you go... More

Tower, which cost $ to enter did not dramatically improve the view you got for free. If you are trying to get the most amazing picture of HK, then The Tower could be worth it. If you are happy with pretty much the same view, but slightly less elevated, then save your money for the shopping. No bargains here, but... More

We took a tram in the evening and skip the lines. In my opinion, night view of Hong Kong is much better than by day. Top side is a classical shopping mall with commercial restaurants like Buba Gump which you can find anywhere in the world. Was expecting more domestic ones. Top view is really nice especially by night. If... More

There is nothing special about it, only interesting place there is a Sky Terrace where you could have a great views of HK city. The Tower is an end point for Peak Tram, plus it filled with plenty of shops and escalators taking you to the top. There are also some restaurants, we did not try because I think they... More

More a shopping mall than a view point, unless you pay the extra fee and use the roof top view point. After taking the tram rather just walk outside the tower and get your view for free.

It was impossible to take the classic tram, so we took the normal bus to go to the top. In the end we made the best choice: the tram is not worthy at all and it's just a waste of time! The view is pretty unique, even if it's always very crowded with photographers or tourists. IF you don't want... More
