The Peak Tram is a must do to get to Victoria Peak. It's incredible so think it was built over 100 years ago. It is so steep in places it feels almost vertical. The only negative for this is the queue to get on but it is well worth the wait.

If you have lot of time during your visit to victoria peak, yes then take it. Not really worth the wait or the money. Fairly quick ride down or up but very long wait. Skip it!

The q is horrendously long. N crowd control isn't very professionally dealt with. Everyone was kind of pushing their way. Not very kid friendly I would say. But the trip is worthwhile because the view at the top of the peak is breathtaking

If you like long lines and enjoy standing in line for at least 1-2 hours to pay about USD20.00/person return ticket to Victoria Peak, than it's your thing to do. It's badly managed - once you reach the train you are not even having a spot to sit. While Victoria Peak itself offers great views and nice food, the tram... More

A great trip not to be missed like a ski lift as it climbs up the peak through tunnels with glimpses of the Buildings and bay as you rise up

We took the cable car on the way down from The Peak. Well organised and people behaving in a calm and respectful manner. Very steep and impressive at times. A must in this city.

Fantastic views all round. Recommend you get the ticket that allows you out on the Sky Terrace 428 which gives all round views and great photos. Return ticket is not much more than a single ticket.

It was a one time try for me. Queue was extremely long and even though we bought express tickets which include the sky deck and madame tussauds tickets we still had to go through the huge crowd which did not bother to queue and just pushed through to get in the tram. Amazingly rude. The tram ride was quite fast... More

The Tram is kind of part of Hong Kong history. The tram only operated from and to The Peak. There will be a long queuing line here, yet it will give you a different moment of using public transportation.

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.
