Go there only very early in the morning! Otherwise it's to busy. View is really cool and lots of restaurants up there. Ps it's very commercial but worth the picture.

This was a nice ride and an interesting way to get to the peak, but the queues were long. Perhaps planning to take a bus or similar back dow would mean you avoid the queues to get back down again!

The view of the city and harbour from the Peak Tram is just stunning. You cannot go to Hong Kong and not take a ride on the Peak Tram. We went during the day and it was beautiful. I am sure it is even better at night.

The tram ride itself is amazing and a true feat of engineering genius. However despite this being the most popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong it was terribly organized. You cannot buy tickets online so you have to queue. We queued about 90 mins. There was no indication about the time given or any information. The crowds do not queue... More

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.
