We took the tram up to the top of Victoria Peak on a hot afternoon. We had to queue for around 30 minutes. The trip itself was good, if slightly hair-raising up the steep ascent. The trip down was food too, although this time we were sitting backwards for the descent.

I thought the ride was one of kind with wonderful scenic view along its path to the Victoria Peak. You can see the very expensive condos along the mid-level where well-to-do Hong Kong people live. There is a particular point when the tram is at its steepest and you can literally stand hands- free with you body at an angle... More

Peak Tram was very organised. Asians are very good at efficiently organising large crowds with the minimum of fuss. There is a new shopping centre and plaza at the top and plenty of coffee and views. Great fun to do.

we arrive at the Peak tram station around 5.30pm and it was a Saturday evening. We were asked to queue at the opposite site of station for waiting the train. We noted that there is a sign showing that we need to wait for about 2 hours in order to take the train up to the Peak. We decided to... More

It's best to try and get to the top first and then descend down . otherwise you'll be waiting for ever at the bottom to get the tram to the top. Impressive views

Take the tram up or down to get area sense of the Peak - astonishing to think how it was built & is still running today. Not worth buying the extra Skyline viewing platform, the views are just as good from the 3rd floor shopping centre nextdoor (free). Views at the top acros the harbour are worth, even of a... More

You have to wait awhile and then cram onto the tram. Interesting steep ride up but the views are not that great until the very last part.

There is nothing so exciting about the ride. Nothing much in view to enjoy during the ride. Well you can say at Hong Kong you took one ride in this tram.

Reached the lower terminal about 5pm. The crowd was overwhelming. By the time we were in the tram about 6pm, unable to get a seat and too tired to fully enjoy the ride and scenery. Probably the crowd is lesser or non at all in the early morning. Best to have the tickets in advance so that can get to... More

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.
