Paying for Peak Tram with Octopus card

I know that you can use the Octopus card to take the Peak Tram (separate queue) but how does it work to buy a ticket for Madame Tussaud's or the tram with the observation tower included?

I doubt it works to get the package price for Madame Tussauds if you do not buy the package before. Nevertheless you may pay with Octopus.

If you go for the package, may be you consider to buy at CTS for 189HKD.

They have a booth at the airport and several offices in the city.

Some thoughts on the Madame Tussaud experience in Hong Kong. Just my opinions.

tripadvisor.com/…REVIEWS

If you are a fan of the Madame Tussaud's museums, go for it. If not, save your money for Ocean Park, Disney or other attractions that are much better value for money than this attraction. Just ride the Peak and enjoy the views, skip this attraction.

Madame Tussaud's has its own ticket office at the Lower Peak Tram Terminus (open 9-30am to 9-30pm)where you can purchase the "3 in 1 Combo Ticket" for Peak Tram, Madame Tussaud's and Sky Terrace 428. You do not need to join the queue for Peak Tram tickets. There is usually little or no queue at this ticket office and, having purchased tickets, you can walk straight through the barriers to the Peak Tram platform concourse in the same way that Octopus Card holders do.

By swiping their Octopus Card on the Octopus Card Reader at the entry barrier to Sky Terrace inside the Peak Tower.

Planning half a day in Hong Kong. Will be purchasing an Airport Express Travel card. Can this be used on the Peak Tram? Also how do we go about using the Sky Terrace? Do we have to buy a ticket for this separately?

Hello Anonymous_reviewer1

You can buy a combination ticket at the Peak Tram terminus. See price list on the Peak Website. Fee is HK$65 for combined tram/sky terrace entrance or HK$40. Sky Terrace entrance without tram ticket is HK$30.

When you initially purchase the Airport Express Travel Pass it can only be used for Airport Express and MTR journeys. Once it is topped up with added value (which can be done at any time after purchase), the amount of added value can be used for travel on other forms of transport, buses, trams, ferries etc and the Peak Tram and also MTR rides after the initial "three days" of unlimited MTR rides have expired. ie it works in the same way as a standard Octopus Card.

For Sky Terrace you can either use Octopus Card or, if you have added value to it as explained above, AE Travel Pass at the terrace entry barriers, or you can buy tickets at ticket office inside the Peak Tower or you can buy a combined Peak Tram + Sky Terrace Ticket at the Lower Peak Tram Terminus on Garden Road.
