Peak Tram, Hong Kong Reviews
Peak is one of the top ten tourist attractions in Hong Kong. It was difficult to imagine an entrance in the middle of busy street can give you such a thrilling joy. A long serpentine que was worth every penny. Excitement starts building up as tram climbs steep gradient towards the Peak. There is an observation desk on top of building full of restaurants but entry is chargeable. There are a couple of places from where you can enjoy Hong Kong skyline. The view leaves you spellbound. Amazing experience.
There is no way I would be doing the hike up there in the Hong Kong heat, so the tram is an absolute 'must do'! It's quaint and Victorian, but has been replaced in the past to ensure it is fully safe and to modern standards. The view is a amazing as it makes its journey, and as the tram climbs the steepest parts the tram points upwards creating a strange semi vertical seating position as if you are about to be blasted into outer space.
We didn't do a lot of research on other ways of getting up to the peak, but this was a nice, convenience, and fast way to get to the top.we came on a Sunday morning, but the lines were not nearly as long as we expected. We probably waited about 30 minutes including buying a tickets and boarding the tram. We looked up the best places to sit on the tram but there really aren't bad spots -- if you can find a seat, you will probably have a pretty good view.
Full of tourists, I guess almost every day though, and before you reach here, there's a building belong to the richest man in Hong Kong nearby. Frankly speaking there's nothing special here, only historic tram that built during occupation. Amazingly it can goes up to the hill more than 45 degrees I guess. Thrilling and yet fun, you couldn't take pictures of HK skyscraper, just be patient until you get to the top.
A nice ride up to the top of the hill where the observatory is. The lines can be extremely long so make sure that you arrive at 9am if you want to walk directly to the tram. The lines are also outside and it gets very hot, in case you have children/elderly. Not necessarily pricey, but once you get up it feels there’s yet another mall at the top before you get to the terrace. Lots of shopping and restaurants... but it misses the essence of where you are and the history of what you are contemplating. The views are, of course, the best.
