We used the tram to the peak. It was not very easy to find, but we eventually got there, We were there by10.00. we bought return tickets and then joined the queue. There are 2 trams that are connected and each tram can take a lot of people . We managed to get on the first tram and sit down... More

We rode the tram down, but with no air con and ALOT of people pushing, it wasn't the best experience. We also have a young son in a pram and they don't really accommodate for families with strollers. As it's steep, that would be the draw card but it's very quick (maybe 2-3 minutes) and very hot in the warmer... More

Book with Klook to avoid queues at ticketing and tram boarding up. Sit on the right side on the way up to enjoy a view of the city of Hong Kong. Recommend to visit around 4pm in order to enjoy both day and night views from the peak and to avoid the huge crowds which starts around 5pm. View from... More

I love this tram. Always take it every time I've visit Hong Kong. Although it might be crowd, but you shouldn't miss it at all cost. I suggest going by day is better because you will be able to see more than in the night. Also, select non-holiday, or week day might be the best.

came here twice, 1st time with my husband, 2nd time with my family. had a bad experience esp with the crowds waiting to board the tram. the tram ride itself and the service was superb, thumbs up. but its the overwhelming number of the mainland chinese crowds that spoilt the otherwise superb experience. they were pushing and shoving and blocking...

A nice short vertical trip to the Peak to see Hong Kong. Souvenir stores as well as restaurants to dine. Recommend dining in Wan Chai or Causeway Bay for better value.

Well I have to say that it was a fair one time experience. Only if I had known that it lasts for less than 10 mins I would not have waited for 3 hours in the queue. Overly prized. Better take a taxi up hill and get some pictures. Yes taxi will be more expensive. Avoid July/August time frame. When... More

Of the many ways to reach the peak, the Peak Tram is the fastest, most famous, most historic and probably the most scenic route. The tram started operating over a century ago and still runs on the original tracks although the rest of the system including the haulage equipment, stations and the cars has been upgraded several times and is...

I'll start with the tram, it's clean and roomy and fast so if anyone thinks they might feel afraid it's over pretty quick! Even coming down I thought I'd freak but it was ok as you sit facing upward. Yes it's steep!! As for the queue well that's another story! The line was down the street. So I bought the... More

Got in the peak tram on our way to sky terrace. Blown away by the view on our way there. Since we climb up so the building on our sides were looked tilted.

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.
