Overpriced and with long queues to wait for a tram, it really is not the best option to visit the Peak. Instead I would highly recommend taking the number 15 bus which was more scenic and considerably cheaper. The tram also deposits you in this ghastly commercial area whereas with the bus you can explore the true peak.

Gotta Try.... Definitely gotta try.. Queueing for tram tickets can be frustrating. Super long queue for ticket and boarding of tram.. Try to reach early to avoid the crowd (9-10am) Try to seat on the left for better view..

What an exciting (and amazing optical illusion) way to travel to The Peak, although it generally has long queues ,especially on clear sunny days as these are ideal to get the panoramic views from the Peak the waiting time passes by quite quickly. the trams run approximately every 10-15 minutes. There is a historical gallery located on the lower terminus... More

The only way to get into the victoria peak is the peak tram you may wait a long time to get in because that the famous attraction in hong kong you will wait from 1hour to 3 hour depend of the time you come and the season. But is totally worth it you can enjoy the view by climbing the... More

Well worth doing - the view from the top is great. If you have an opportunity to get skip the line tickets (e.g from the big red bus/hop-on/off bus) - do it. The lines were extremely long the day we were there and even with skip the one, we waited for quite some time.

Brilliant short yet steep trip. Speed regulated for safety because the tram line runs close to high riser buildings at parts of the journey.

Nice experience to go up the peak for the first time besides taking bus or taxi. Pass by buildings that are so close to the tramp that you can actually converse with the peo people living in the building.

Very very steep gradient - there are two cars and they are very busy going up but not so much coming down. Be prepared to have patience to get on. The view is amazing

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood 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.
