  • We paid 99HK$ return by tram. We had to wait a very long time both to go and to come back. Pretty crowded. The tram is a nice experience. It is not a long ride. Once you get there, you can see a prett...  more »
  • We didn’t have to queue very long, but I didn’t like the tram trip up, we had to stand at back of tram and it terrified me. But once at the top, some pretty spectacular views of the city.  more »
  • Which country it's just a place to get a gazebo in particular go to Victoria Park during the day and at night is also a nice gazebo I suppose spending as the best side and would definitely go back but tram ride and a lot of people have to wait for a ton of free time provided to think better of early thorn

  • Absolutely amazing. A must see if in or near Hong Kong. Best to see night and day, but the night view blew me away. I spent 2.5 years in Asia, & the night I went up the peak & saw greater Hong Kong from this vantage point is almost otherworldly. In other words, one of the most amazing things I saw. Top 3, definitely!!!
  • If you had to pick 1 place to see in Hong Kong, this would be my #1 spot to see!!! There is a fee to take the tram up to the peak; however, you can take a taxi or drive to the peak. There is a mall of several stores, the best place to get souvenirs is the gift shop on top of the peak after get off the tram, it is more reasonably priced then in the city, there are historical sights, and an observation deck to take in and view the most spectacular skyline of the city. Hong Kong is beautiful! Especially at night! Take your time - you do not want to rush the sights. Once you view the observation deck, stroll down the paths and streets to your left and explore the temple and sights of Hong Kong!
  • One of the best vantage points in Hong Kong. Also, there are a number of walking trails to explore around. Can get REALLY hot in the summer, so best to go early morning or evening. Great opportunities to take photos, so carrying a tripod up may not be a bad idea!
  • This is the spot to go if you want gorgeous views of Hong Kong’s skyline. However, there isn’t anything up here aside from two malls with an unimpressive selection of stores. Two quick tips: 1. Take the bus up and the tram down (the bus is significantly cheaper and the tram will be like a roller coaster on the way down) 2. If you need to use the bathroom head to the mall across the way from the tram building unless you prefer toilets that are in the ground
  • Amazing viewpoint of the skyline of Hong Kong! You should definitely check out this place, it is stunning at night. There is also a nice light show at 8pm. The place is really crowded so it's pretty hard to find a good spot for pictures.
