It's a mixed bag in my view. It's a nice (and steep) ride along the tilted skyscrapers, but whether it's worth (several) hours of wait everybody has to decide for him/herself... read more

You can take a bus to the peak for a quater the peice and no wait at all!! People just don't realize how much of a tourist trap it really is

It's a mixed bag in my view. It's a nice (and steep) ride along the tilted skyscrapers, but whether it's worth (several) hours of wait everybody has to decide for him/herself. There are other ways to go to the peak, e.g. the bus #15 from Central or Admiralty. In particular the wait in the evening to go down can be... More

The tram is a great way to get to the peak, standing by the front gives you a great view going up ad down opposed to sitting. Very reasonably priced comfortable and quick.You can pay with your Octopus card.

On a Friday afternoon we waited for about 5 minutes to buy our ticket and another 5 minutes to board the tram, easy! Recommend sitting on the right side of the tram (side with 3 seats) as this gives you the view back over Hong Kong). Some steep inclines which was fun. Yet another short queue to return. Sounds like... More

Rates are cheaper with an octopus card though you might be able to skip some of the line. Line was busy on a Saturday with about a 45 minute wait.

Is it me or this tram was boring, cramped uncomfortable ride with minimum scenery and long queuing time? A bit overrated!

We arrived at the peak team terminal around 5pm on a thursday and it was jam packed. We waited at least 1hr in a super crowded queue on a 30degC day and no air circulation. For the price we are paying they could invest on some fans to make the wait more bearable. The return trip too we had to... More

As we got tickets as part of the red bus tour and really wanted to go to the peak we braved the tram. Even though we had fast track ticket we still waited over half an hour to get a train. In all honesty really not worth it. Packed train, total bullfight to get on and couldn't see a thing... More

We booked our Peak Tram and Trick Eye Museum visit through Klook. So glad that we did because we were able to go straight to the front of the long long queue. I recommend booking through Klook unless you enjoy standing in the hot sun for an hour or two. The tram ride was OK, but the real treat is... More

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.
