The peak is a must see in HK however be prepared for long wait times going up and down the tram.There are many resturants and shops at the top of the peak.

Within walking distance of central MRT station. Expect long queue -up to an hour but still worth it . Wonderful views and plenty of options for coffee / food while up on viewing area . Expect to spend a few hours here

We didn't really push through on this one because upon arriving we saw a lot of people waiting. Better be ready to wait in line for a long time, or prepare a plan B should you decide not to like us. I heard this was great, though. Will definitely add this to our list of go-to's when we return.

The Peak Tram is a must do to get to Victoria Peak. It's incredible so think it was built over 100 years ago. It is so steep in places it feels almost vertical. The only negative for this is the queue to get on but it is well worth the wait.

If you have lot of time during your visit to victoria peak, yes then take it. Not really worth the wait or the money. Fairly quick ride down or up but very long wait. Skip it!

The q is horrendously long. N crowd control isn't very professionally dealt with. Everyone was kind of pushing their way. Not very kid friendly I would say. But the trip is worthwhile because the view at the top of the peak is breathtaking

If you like long lines and enjoy standing in line for at least 1-2 hours to pay about USD20.00/person return ticket to Victoria Peak, than it's your thing to do. It's badly managed - once you reach the train you are not even having a spot to sit. While Victoria Peak itself offers great views and nice food, the tram... More

A great trip not to be missed like a ski lift as it climbs up the peak through tunnels with glimpses of the Buildings and bay as you rise up

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.
