One of the best tram rides in the world as you climb to the top of Victoria Peak, you get fantastic views on the way as well.

We visited the Peak during a trip through Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong. We liked this Peak Tram for a few reasons. 'The Peak is nice, especially the walk. The cable car is a bit special. It has two wagons. Never seen this for this kind of transportation. The refurbishement has been performed by a company from Switzerland (where we... More

Avoid Sundays as this is the Domestic staff day off, we witnessed a predicted 90 min queue to go up and so walked away to return next morning at 0930 and almost walk straight on to team. Journey up conjures the days of the colony, the top is well supported with coffee house, awful toilets and every nasty piece of... More

I loved going on the peak tram the views from it were amazing. I wouldn't recommend going on the peak tram in peak season or on a weekend as the queues for it are massive. Would take you two hours to queue to get on it maybe even more. Luckily we only queued for 20 minutes as we went on... More

Everyone I know who has visited Hong Kong says that this is a must do attraction. Our tickets were included in our Hop On Hop Off bus tickets which was good as it saved the queing. It was so strange to sit on the tram and see the buildings at least a 45 degree angle on the ride. Fortunately when... More

At some points on the ride you are pitched up like 45 degrees. The queue is pretty long as this is popular but the price is reasonable and the staff is aggressive but prompt and keep everyone in line and moving which is great. They do not accept credit cards which I thought was odd.

The long queue in front of the entrance is something that can be easily borne, since the trip is absolutely amazing. The old tram sometimes seems to literally challenge gravity!

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.
