Worth the Money?
Nov 2019
The Sky Terrace on Peak Tower is perhaps my least favourite thing to do with visitors. Unfortunately, a lot of tourists want to do it. I guess there are times on a holiday when you just want to do the tourist thing and tick the box. Sometimes it’s just easier. If that’s the case, then you will probably find that the Sky Terrace fits the bill. However, there are other equally good spots to see essentially the same view for free. Two of these are the deck at the Galleria shopping centre and the Lion’s Pavilion, which sits just below Peak Tower (see separate review).
To be fair, the Sky Terrace does have a few advantages. It offers is a very big, open platform so it doesn't tend to be as crowded. It also has a 360 degree view of the island. You can get similar perspectives by doing the Peak Circle Walk (see separate review) but the view from the Terrace is of course much higher up and its uninterrupted. If you are a fan of clichéd photos beside large props, then there are a few photo opportunities here for you but once you have looked at the view, there is little else to do other than go back down again.
The Terrace costs up to $52HKD, although it is slightly cheaper if you buy a Peak tram combo ticket. You can use your octopus card.
Be aware, that this really is a fair-weather activity. If the weather is misty or the sky is not clear, it will likely be a huge disappointment and you won’t be able to see much at all.

A bit confusing
Feb 2020 • Couples
This mini mall is a bit confusing getting around but worth it for the first time. As you get off the tram you walk thru the market shops that sell souvenirs at reasonable prices. Due to the protests and corona virus crisis traffic to this mall is way down and some stores and eateries have closed. Wax museum is closed temporarily. Rest rooms are clean and comfortable. At the concierge desk you can show a receipt of any purchase in the building and get a free gift. Take a pass at Sky Terrace.it is not worth the extra cost. You can get similar views for free all around. The design of this place is a bit strange and confusing. Getting off and on the tram as well as getting in and out of the building can take some doing.

Dead mall
Feb 2020
Peak Tower is a landmark at the Peak. The mall is quite underwhelming now. Many shops are closed and the remaining ones are uninteresting. Can be skipped.

A Tourist Trap - Seems most tourist destinations have some of these
Feb 2020
The Peak Tower is a tourist trap that visitors find themselves sort of stuck in when disembarking the Peak Tram ride at the Upper Terminus. There are no exit signs in this awkward building, instead you are left to wander the floors in search for a way out on your own.

There is a reason, the building is deliberately designed to keep you inside. What you will notice is that you are sort of funnelled to the series of escalators prompting you upward until you reach their Sky Terrace 428. There you pay an additional HK$52 per adult / HK$26 per child to view Victoria Harbour from their rooftop terrace. You can then try to find your way out of this building again so that you can enjoy the rest of Victoria Peak.

Note: The views at Sky Terrace 428 are no better than what you find at the free viewpoint just outside the Peak Tower at the Lion's Pavilion. After you manage to escape the Peak Tower, this is less than one minute walk away along Lugard Road.

Note: To escape the Peak Tower, simply find the Pacific Coffee shop on Level G. There is an exit just to the right of this coffee shop out to the Victoria Peak grounds.

Within the Peak Tower, you will find a group of cheap Hong Kong tourist shops, eateries and coffee shop mentioned above. You will also find a Madam Tussauds Wax Museum, another attraction that can drain you of sightseeing money rather quickly. If these are things you have come for, it is fine to enjoy them when you arrive.

However, if you simply wanting to ride the historic Peak Tram and enjoy the Peak views, you don't have to participate in this tourist trap experience. You can simply exit the building per the directions provided above and enjoy being at Victoria Peak.

Highly recommend viewing the city from the top!
Oct 2019
Day or night this place has a absolutely beautiful view, with stunning views of the city. We took the train up and back down. It's well worth it as there is quite a few meal/beverage options and activities once you're up there. At the time of our trip Hong Kong was going through a bit with their government so the peak was almost empty (all the reviews I read said it got quite busy around sunset, however we went up without any issues and got seats at a restaurant quite quickly) I believe this would have been the reason it wasn't very packed. Recommend for all ages!

Great experience and a must do when in Hong Kong. Lovely train ride to the top, go early morning to avoid the rush and wait for sky terrace to open at 10am.

Peak Tram Sky Tour was a good experience
Dec 2019
Great views from the peak especially in the night. Ours was a free and easy, no tour guide. Best experience was the the Sky Terrace via The Peak Tower. From the Peak Tram we took the escalator to the top floor giving us the access to the viewing platform which was included in our tram ticket. Access to the terrace, provided us with a 360 degree view of Hong Kong. Weather was great.

Peak Tram Dec 2019
Dec 2019 • Couples
Well worth going up the tram for the iconic view. Just be aware the visitor centre is now massive with many floors and escalators before you get to the view.
BE AWARE the trip advisor ticket pass loaded to Apple Wallet was NOT accepted as sufficient to redeem ticket but was able to use their WiFi to show whole e-mail fortunately not at all busy when we went. View is spectacular finding way out seemed liked it was made deliberately unclear

Terribly managed
Dec 2019 • Family
This place is a total trap for tourist. Do NOT waste your money here falling into this commercial trap where you can actually get a broader clearer view next to the tower which is absolutely free. The staff here is rude and unwilling to help. They treat you like nobody just want to squeeze you into the queue as quick as possible without even bothering listen to you. Was just trying to find a nursing room and staff here are not even familiar with the amenities in this tower. Signs here are minimal and you have absolutely no idea where you are going. In short, this is not a tourist friendly attraction and is not worth spending your money visiting the sky terrence!
