  • The tram ride itself is amazing, let alone the views of Hong Kong from The Peak! Unfortunately, we had an overcast day but it's an experience I think every visitor to Hong Kong should have!  more »
  • Air pollution in Hong Kong S.A.R. than night is not clear and as you can see. Who could appreciate the beautiful night good luck lucky? And after the year-end.

  • If you are a little bit too early to watch the scenery of the fog. Come up and see the non-did not properly. And it's pretty cold, warm coffee gifts and recalls.

  • This is the most beautiful places I ever seen. Looking downtown the city of hongkong from the seas overview with highest mountain and building. Pag sa central ka ang bus na sakyan ay bus 15 papunta sa taas 15 minutes drive from central 7hkd. Kung magtram ka ang bàyad 600 hkd complete package. Dala ka nang pack lunch sa central 35 hkd may kainan sa baba nang Victoria The peak. huwag ka kakain sa loob mahal.
  • The best place to view Hong Kong. It is quite chilly up there if you go at night, so you will need a sweater. A great place!
  • This is a major tourist trap. Going to the top of the viewing tower is a waste of money. Luckily there are some good viewing places beside the tower. There is a walking path (which is the old road to the peak) that is a wonderful hike to the peak. It can give you some amazing views of Hong Kong and the harbour.
  • It is OK. Beautiful view from the city. Forget about the tram, or you will need lots of patience: the queue is unbelievable. You can rather ride the bus line 15, also with a nice view.
  • Great views of Hong Kong island and Kowloon. In busy periods just get a taxi to the top as the queue can be 3 hours long. Going down on the tram is just as good and the queue is much shorter. Taxi should cost around 60HKD
