A good fun and historical activity

The history of the peak tram associated with the British occupation is fascinating along with the engineering. It also just a fun ride to take.

Good way to get to the peak. Ofcourse crowded and yet the easiet way to get to the peak. If you like hiking you can avoid it.

Thought this might be about as good as my "local" cable car in Wellington, New Zealand. But I was wrong. This tram travels over an undulating and curved track that has very steep sections. Very interesting, and great way to get up to Victoria Peak

No visit to Hong Kong is complete without taking the Peak Tram to Victoria Peak, but we found it overcrowded, confusing and underwhelming. The views are great from the top if you want to pay for the Sky deck or can find your way to the Lions lookout. The smog was again a real spoiler.

Noone likes queuing for hours, neither do we. So, to get in faster we bought the hop on hop off bus ticket including the Peak tram. This allows you to use the fast lane for going up; Be aware, even with fast lane we still had about 40 minutes waiting time! For going down, there's no fast lane. And so... More

This has really been updated in recent years but is exceptionally busy so if resisting allow a lot more time. It's really a 4-6 hour trip in full. The waiting time on a Monday 11am was nearly 1 hour to get up and 30 minutes to get back. All experiences when up there are overpriced including photos, just take your... More

The peak tram was opened in the late 1880s and is an amazing trip to the peak district. It runs up to a 40% grade and provides great views... But come EARLY!!! The line gets horribly long!

Expect queues! It gets busy! Definitely the easiest way up to the peak but at busy times you'll gueue for tickets and to board. It's to be tried once but nothing special although the gradient is unusual.

Part of the trip to Victoria Peak does get busy and worth getting Big Bus ticket as this gives you priority at the queue

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.
