The tram ride itself is amazing and a true feat of engineering genius. However despite this being the most popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong it was terribly organized. You cannot buy tickets online so you have to queue. We queued about 90 mins. There was no indication about the time given or any information. The crowds do not queue... More

I think it is a must do thing in HK, but not necessarily multiple times. The queue is long and the peak is full of commercial stuff, but if you haven't been there, try it and send a post card from the peak. There is a post office on top of HK, and get the picturesque HK.

It is a nice ride up up to the Victoria peak. It is really good if its clear skies! Otherwise , it could be a tad disappointing as the skyline is covered by clouds! But ride is interesting!

Avoid the queue by prebuying a ticket. Incredibly steep hill, you go up at an amazing angle, hold on tight if you don't have a seat! Superb views from the peak tower. We paid extra to go to the very top.

If you don't feel like killing your self walking to the top of the peak then pay to take this. I would highly recommend this to avoid the long steep walk upwards. You will love the road on both sides as it is very scenic

It's been around since the colonial days. Very historic mode of transport to "the Paek". A must try when you are in Hong Kong.

As it is december, very crowded with festive crowds. Q for 3 hours. Bought standard tivket as we had vidited the wax museum before. If u have money to splurge, you may buy the express tcket by wax museum. They use a different lane. But if everyone buys the express lanes? Think. People tend to push when you get closer... More

Seriously we had to wait almost two hours in line. The peak is awesome but that line was terrible. Don't be like us. Go when they open and skip the wait!

Yeah it is only for 2 minutes but line for the same can be for 2 hours so go for the deal they give to avoid long lines which includes round trip tram ride, Madam Tussauds, and Sky Terrace.

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.
