The tram ride is worth experiencing once for the vintage. It's a steep climb and lasts about 20mins. Don't bother with the sky view unless you're very keen. There's an overpriced mall at the top with Restaurants that are the usual fare. Views from the top are quite good similar from any skyscraper in HK. Book online to avoid excessive... More

The lines are VERY long and it is extremely hot waiting for the next tram however, the pay off is the fast, steep ride and the spectacular views from the top. It is a huge tourist attraction that is well worth wait!

The queue for the tram was utterly ridiculous. As a result, when we finally got to get on the tram, it was completely packed. The tram would've been very nice I'm sure, bit the crowds really made it quite hard to enjoy the experience. Bus up might have been a better alternative on a very busy day.

The slope is very sharp, and hence the experience is very unique. We really enjoyed the ride. But what we didn't enjoy was the heavy queues which became at the end a bit annoying. We bought the fast track ticket, and still we had to wait in queue for almost an hour. We went on a weekend, and maybe that... More

It's quite an experience being taken up on a tram that has to navigate such a steep incline, and the views of local housing and buildings as you ascend and descend is interesting - and the views of Hong Kong and surrounds from the peak are fantastic (on a clear day - but prone to pollution haze, so you need...

A great little journey and different way to travel to get up to the peak. Beware the very long queues to buy the tickets and then to get on to the tram.

Bought tickets at the Hong Kong airport but the queues both on the way up and down were so long we couldn't even get near the tram. Something needs to be done about this . Just a waste of money.. We ended up taking a taxi

The trick to not having spend hours in line getting baked in the sun is to not ride the tram up but rather ride it down. Catch the peak bus from where the star ferry docks at central. It's cheaper than the tram for starters and gives you a cool view from the road as you drive up. The maids... More

Have to endure long queues to get onto the tram. The ride was up steep slopes and for those with vertigo, it can be very scary. Night time scene is breathtaking and also hides the steep slopes the tram travels on.

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.
