Pretty Cool but Huge Lines

It's a nice ride up to the Peak - very steep - but the lines are insane. Be ready to wait 30-60 minutes, even on weekdays, to get onto the tram. On top of that, they let Chinese... read more

This tram is interesting because the rail is on a very steep slope. It is also very very slow. So slow that you can expect to wait one or two hours to board (in either direction). If you don't like lines, you can always walk to and from the peak instead (a little over one hour to hike up).

Well organises and well behaved people. Very old and beautiful tram with loads of landmarks to see up at the upper deck! Shopping spot for souvenirs and eateries for every palate

I felt like I was in the 18th century. I was super amazed cos the train is like going up almost 90 degress angle. Going down was super cool too for it was going backwards! What fun to ride the peak tram!

Yeah a bit fun to do. But overpriced and you don't see much. Especially not if it's not daylight. And if you don't sit on the right side in the tram. Bus up to the Peak is highly recommended instead of the Tram.

It's a nice ride up to the Peak - very steep - but the lines are insane. Be ready to wait 30-60 minutes, even on weekdays, to get onto the tram. On top of that, they let Chinese Tour Groups (who, I'd guess, have paid to see Madame Toussad's Wax Museum) go ahead of everyone else. Anyone who pays for... More

The Peak Tram is a short journey with long queues if you're not up early. On your way up, ride on the right side of the tram to see the skyscrapers of HK Island. You can even choose to stand inside the tram. For those afraid of heights, no need to be afraid.

This is one of the things I enjoyed in Hong Kong. Though it is the same as other trams moving on the streets, it somehow had a different feel and experience. The reasons could be the view on the way or the excited crowd wanting to the the peak or may be the wait that is required to get onto... More

Went to hongkong for 5 days and decided to visit the Peak on January 1, 2017. Wrong decision. Purchased in advance passes to Madame Tussaud gallery. Another wrong decision. The line for tram tickets was so long it would take forever, if not outright impossible to get on the tram. And so panicking and thinking we may not be able... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
