Very good

Sends you the chills as the tram ascends and descends from the peak. The queue is always long. A marvelous engineering marvel.

good experience and inexpensive way to travel, don't forget to catch a bus down, it is most exciting especially when the driver is racing down in great speed

this was a very interesting ride, the only way to get to the peak, easy, clean and relaxing, the only problem we had was the weather was wet and the clouds took away the view

An absolute must-do when visiting Hong Kong. Beautiful old tram, and a surprisingly exciting ride up the almost impossibly steep hill, almost like a fairground ride! You really need to hold on tight! We managed to hop on without too much of a wait part way up after we'd visited the nearby botanical gardens, so were totally unprepared for the... More

Lines for this ride can be pretty long, and on weekends you might be waiting for over an hour to get on. It is definitely a unique experience, so if you really want, just arrive at the station as early as you can.

The Peak Tram is a great way to get up to the Peak, with fantastic views along the way on a clear day. The ride is less than 10 minutes but the lines can get quite long. Go early!

The peak tram to the victoria peak is a nice way to go to the top. I cannot say it is a must, but it was a nice experience. It wasn't so expensive and there were not so many people, That is the main reason we did. I've heard people have to wait for hours here. Then I would certainly... More

The tram is a fun way to go up to or down from the Peak. The ride is not that long so be quick taking photos. Depnding on the weather and the number of people wanting to use the tram you might have to face a long wait to get boarded.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
