You can use the Octopus travel card to pay the fare for the peak tram and avoid the queue for tickets. It's only a relatively short ride to the top of Victoria Peak but really very steep indeed!! At one stage, it felt as if we were almost completely perpendicular to the ground. Quite an experience.

HK$88 per person for return ticket and access to the sky platform. We got there at 10am and did not have to queue for very long but by the time we came back down the queue was very long! There are 2 trams, each one 2 coaches, sharing the same steel rope so the trams leave one from the bottom... More

It's an unbelievable trip. Not easy for those afraid of heights. However you feel you're going back on time. The staff are very friendly and the view it's amazing. The team will take you to Victoria peak

Must-try during your trip in HongKong! Although it is very crowded and popular as tourist attraction, it was a great experience by taking the peak tram. Buy your ticket as bundle with museum is more efficient rather than joining the long queue, the counter just next to the queue. Take care of your children as some tourists will push forward... More

Don't join the vast, hour plus queues at the bottom of the funicular. Instead, get the number 15 bus from the Exchage Bus Station in Central for better views at a fraction of the cost. When you've seen what there is to see at the peak come back on the tram. There are no queues at the top and you'll... More

We made the mistake of deciding to take the Peak Tram on a Saturday afternoon - bad idea. We went to the lower station first and were put off by the crowds, so went away and came back later - you've guessed it, just as many crowds. In the end we queued an hour to get on the tram. Perhaps... More

Long queues and a crowded tram does not for me provide an interesting experience. Certainly the tram is a quick form of transport to the Peak but when you get to the Peak, the experience is further marred by the many very tacky shops. Not an experience I would rush back to.

As first timer to visit the Tram, me and my family was kinda nervous with the experience. Ticketing was jam packed by people who wants to buy tickets, but luckily we have prior booked to KLOOK, we have skipped the long queu and we have stepped in the platform first. But be careful once the tram arrived seats are first... More

The Peak is a high spot over HK and the sights, if the smog/haze allows, are spectacular. Show your Octopus Card, or even better book a Red Bus tour and add the peak, to avoid the massive queues.

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.
