Amazing feat of engineering with very efficient queues. Historical gallery is well designed. This is the best way to see the Peak and the wait is not too bad.

Unless you come in right when it opens or right before it closes, it's likely you'll have to stand in a long queue before you enter the Peak Tram. Despite the long wait and somewhat pricey admission ($40HKD), it's worth it. The steep tram ride from the bottom to Victoria Peak is neat.

The views are great.. but get off your butt and hike to the top. The tram is great if you are in a wheel chair, pressed for time, or Tammy from Iowa... but the peak deserves a more leisurely hike-like pace so seek it out. The tram is great but...

The queue to board the tram can be long and it feels like a tourist trap, but if it's a right of passage for first-time visitors. Try to stake out a spot on the right side of the tram when ascending to get the view on your way up. It gets pretty steep, so keep your belongings fastened to you and hold tight if you are standing!

Want to know al about the history of the Peak tram? Then this is the place to be. To bad that most of the people come here for a tram ride to the Peak wich makes reading about the history harder. But if you realy want to, go for it! After reading take the tram to the Peak and enjoy the great view!

Of the peak-type trams I've experieced throughout the world, this is the best. The grade at times is so steep that money rolls out of your pants' pockets. Beware! Be sure to visit in both the day and early evening. The view is considerably different.

No visit to Hong Kong is complete without a ride on the Peak Tram. I loved riding these trams when I was a child living in Hong Kong. Way back then it was really exciting (and amazing) to climb steadily up the Peak, hearing the tram click onto the rails as it went. In those days, the Peak just had some gardens, a revolving Peak Tower restaurant and a fantastic view over Hong Kong harbour. My most recent visit totally amazed me. It was still as exciting and amazing to think that this old tram was still climbing the Peak! What I wasn't prepared for was the changes that had been made at the top - a fantastic complex of shops, restaurants etc had been built. The revolving restaurant was still there, as was the fantastic view over the harbour, though this had changed considerably too! If you're going all the way to Hong Kong, you have to go on the Peak Tram.
