Takes you to the top. Great view if clear day. Was overcast when we went and you couldn't see anything, but it was our last day. Lots of shopping at the top.

The Peak Tram is really cool. Especially when it gets to one section when it becomes STEEP! The ride up is at a leisurely pace and affords beautiful views of the Island. The climb also gives a sense of the densely packed buildings and how everything has been balanced on the terrain which is quite steep in places. Whats also... More

We had to stand during the ride,no seats were available. It was hard and dangerously unsafe to balance while Tram was in motion. Local people would rush and push to get in. Had to wait for 20 min to board the train.

The Peak Tram is a very popular and spectacular attraction, and is the fastest way to get from Central to the Peak lookout (about 10 minutes). The double car trams are often packed with tourists so at peak holiday times you may have to wait in a queue before you can board the tram. Trams run continuously so the wait... More

The time spent in queuing was longer than the tram ride itself. But the inclined tram-ride up was an experience. I would think its better to take the ride when its still bright so as to catch a good view of the landscape. We went up at night and it was cloudy, we didn't get to see the skyline. Try... More

It can be worth the wait but there are no benches to seat. If you cannot wait standing up for a long period of time, bring a small folding stool. The line was huge coming down we choosed to walk, it is steep but you are in the nature.

We visited on a tour organised by Grayline. we were worried by the very large queue but fortunately the tour has fast track entry and we caught the next tram to the top. views are frequently obstructed by trees etc and as we travelled in the evening photos suffered from reflections in the window glass. The journey down felt quite... 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.
