Worth the Long Wait

We enjoyed the tram ride, but not the chaotic queueing system required to get on it. Clearly we should have gone earlier in the morning, as advised.

The Tram ride was awesome experience. The waiting time for the tram ride will be between 45 min to 1 hour on both sides. It takes you to the Peak, from where you will be able to view the Hong Kong City. Its worth going in this tram and the ride will be awesome experience.

And a little unuusual. Best way to get to Lookout. Can be long queues at peak times though they are pretty efficient at moving on. Can use Octopus card to pay which avoids queuing on certain days

This is well worth doing. The train ride up is very comfortable and once you are at the top the view is outstanding. It can be windy at the top so bring a sweater/jacket.

It is well worth having a ride on the Peak Tram - if only for the historical interest. The views from the top (on a clear day) are magnificent.

This is a must to do. The views are beautiful. Very steep, big drop. Over too quick. Really enjoyed. The train goes backwards down the hill.

Be prepared for long lineups at sunset. A combo ticket with a visit to Madame Tussaud's can expedited the wait if you are interested.

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.
