The highest point on the Peak to view HK and Victoria harbour. You can usually buy tickets together with the Peak tram. It can get crowded and it may be difficult to find a good vantage spot for your photos, as everyone is jockeying for position to get their best shots. Most will visit late in the afternoon and stay on till sunset.

Sometimes, there is a professional photographer on location who can help, for a price, of course.

There are several eateries on the various floors to suit all budgets, from Bubbas to Macdonalds, and cha chan teang and Italian restaurants. There is also one of HK’s oldest sweet shops from the UK, as well as many souvenir shops.

nice observation deck on the top of the tower. Best to visit in the early sunset to avoid the hot sun as there are no shade.

The Peak Tower in Hong Kong offers stunning panoramic views of the city, making it a must-visit attraction. However, its organization struggles to accommodate the large crowds, which can detract from the overall experience. Nonetheless, the vistas make it worth a visit.

first time to the peak tram. price was around 100 HK$. make sure you ask for the lookout access. no line so the wait was very short. nice ride to the top. its like a mini mall at the top which was kind of sad to see. take the escalators to the top, u have to scan your ticket so dont lose it. great views, nice breeze too on top.

The Sky Terrace on Peak Tower is perhaps my least favourite thing to do with visitors. Unfortunately, a lot of tourists want to do it. I guess there are times on a holiday when you just want to do the tourist thing and tick the box. Sometimes it’s just easier. If that’s the case, then you will probably find that the Sky Terrace fits the bill. However, there are other equally good spots to see essentially the same view for free. Two of these are the deck at the Galleria shopping centre and the Lion’s Pavilion, which sits just below Peak Tower (see separate review).
To be fair, the Sky Terrace does have a few advantages. It offers is a very big, open platform so it doesn't tend to be as crowded. It also has a 360 degree view of the island. You can get similar perspectives by doing the Peak Circle Walk (see separate review) but the view from the Terrace is of course much higher up and its uninterrupted. If you are a fan of clichéd photos beside large props, then there are a few photo opportunities here for you but once you have looked at the view, there is little else to do other than go back down again.
The Terrace costs up to $52HKD, although it is slightly cheaper if you buy a Peak tram combo ticket. You can use your octopus card.
Be aware, that this really is a fair-weather activity. If the weather is misty or the sky is not clear, it will likely be a huge disappointment and you won’t be able to see much at all.

This mini mall is a bit confusing getting around but worth it for the first time. As you get off the tram you walk thru the market shops that sell souvenirs at reasonable prices. Due to the protests and corona virus crisis traffic to this mall is way down and some stores and eateries have closed. Wax museum is closed temporarily. Rest rooms are clean and comfortable. At the concierge desk you can show a receipt of any purchase in the building and get a free gift. Take a pass at Sky Terrace.it is not worth the extra cost. You can get similar views for free all around. The design of this place is a bit strange and confusing. Getting off and on the tram as well as getting in and out of the building can take some doing.

Peak Tower is a landmark at the Peak. The mall is quite underwhelming now. Many shops are closed and the remaining ones are uninteresting. Can be skipped.

The Peak Tower is a tourist trap that visitors find themselves sort of stuck in when disembarking the Peak Tram ride at the Upper Terminus. There are no exit signs in this awkward building, instead you are left to wander the floors in search for a way out on your own.

There is a reason, the building is deliberately designed to keep you inside. What you will notice is that you are sort of funnelled to the series of escalators prompting you upward until you reach their Sky Terrace 428. There you pay an additional HK$52 per adult / HK$26 per child to view Victoria Harbour from their rooftop terrace. You can then try to find your way out of this building again so that you can enjoy the rest of Victoria Peak.

Note: The views at Sky Terrace 428 are no better than what you find at the free viewpoint just outside the Peak Tower at the Lion's Pavilion. After you manage to escape the Peak Tower, this is less than one minute walk away along Lugard Road.

Note: To escape the Peak Tower, simply find the Pacific Coffee shop on Level G. There is an exit just to the right of this coffee shop out to the Victoria Peak grounds.

Within the Peak Tower, you will find a group of cheap Hong Kong tourist shops, eateries and coffee shop mentioned above. You will also find a Madam Tussauds Wax Museum, another attraction that can drain you of sightseeing money rather quickly. If these are things you have come for, it is fine to enjoy them when you arrive.

However, if you simply wanting to ride the historic Peak Tram and enjoy the Peak views, you don't have to participate in this tourist trap experience. You can simply exit the building per the directions provided above and enjoy being at Victoria Peak.

Day or night this place has a absolutely beautiful view, with stunning views of the city. We took the train up and back down. It's well worth it as there is quite a few meal/beverage options and activities once you're up there. At the time of our trip Hong Kong was going through a bit with their government so the peak was almost empty (all the reviews I read said it got quite busy around sunset, however we went up without any issues and got seats at a restaurant quite quickly) I believe this would have been the reason it wasn't very packed. Recommend for all ages!
