    Best for Sea and City View altogether
    you can enjoy best Sea and City View altogether. I took slope train to reach peak which is unique experience and one must use that atleast once. while return we used bus option which is also good and give you good thrill. amazing city view you will get from Peak. We visited this place twice since in our 1st visit there was complete fog and no view available. 2nd time we got all amazing views from peak. you can spend 2-3 hrs at this location easily.

    Deserves being the top attraction in Hong Kong
    I visited Victoria Peak on my first day in Hong Kong with a local friend. She often runs up the Morning trail to the Peak but we took the Peak tram up to the summit which starts amongst the tall buildings and rises to the forested areas quite quickly. My friend had been there on busy weekends but on a Wednesday afternoon the Peak was much quieter and we had no trouble picking up tickets and the tram and restaurants were not crowded. We had snacks at the Peak Galleria and admired the various dog-focused shops before walking the Peak Circular Walk, a fairly flat three and a half km track, using Harlech and Lugard Rds, that encircles the Peak and gives amazing views across Hong Kong from the islands to the north-east and, especially, over Victoria Harbour. While I liked the tram and the Sky Terrace as well as the Galleria and Tower this was my favourite part. I felt I got the best views of Victoria Harbour from the Lugard Rd Victoria Harbour viewing platform. We bought the Skypass ticket option as part of the Peak tram ride which gave access to Sky Terrace 428. I liked it. Bundled with the Peak tram it didn't appear to me to be expensive. The views there were better than those inside the Tower as the windows aren't good for taking photos though I have heard there is a free viewing platform available at the Galleria and, of course, there are the views from the Peak Circular Walk. It is quite a large area with uninterrupted views all around. We saw a little bit of the sunset but it had gotten misty and quite cold and windy while we were there so we headed down to eat dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. before heading back on the tram. It was a great way to start my trip and, while touristy it deserves to be the top attraction in Hong Kong.

    Where Hong Kong's elite resides
    The Peak is where Hong Kong's elite reside. The Peak is home to Hong Kong's movers and shakers. If you are not quite in the multi-millionaire class, many people aim for the Peak's lower levels, such as Mid Levels. By the way, the Peak Tram will take you to the top and back again, it's a great way to spend a morning. The Peak Tram is great fun. By the way, the official name of the Peak is "Victoria Peak."

    Peak walk and Peak Tram
    I’d suggest taking a walk on the peak (3km and mostly shaded) in the late afternoon and continue seeing the sunset/night view of the city in the evening. The peak is several degrees cooler than the city, so bringing an extra piece of clothing if you can get cold easily. While there is a long queue for peak tram, it’s highly recommended to take the tram as it’s so unique. If you take the tram uphill, it’d be a good idea to sit on the right side as you can have the best view there.

    Great View
    Sensational view of Hong Kong and Kowloon skylines. The day I went the weather was not the best but good enough to see the ferries and surrounding areas. Restaurants, bars and souvenir shops were reasonably priced. The tram ride up and down the mountain were an experience that added to a good half day excursion.

    Nice ride up!
    Easy acess to The Peak via the tram up. Dont even need to purchase tickets if you have the octopus card, just tap and you are good to enter the tram ride. Nice scenery and restaurants around the peak areas. We had fun exploring the Mdm Trussade museum, not crowded which is good. The Peak is a must visit place i would say if is your firt trip to HKG! However, do note that the view is very much dependent on the weather conditions . If is foggy, u basically cant see anything.

    Unrivaled views
    Taking the tram up certainly provides you with some stunning views and it was such a fun way to travel! Once you battle your way through all the tacky souvenir shops, you travel up through a further maze of gift shops, restaurants, selfie studios, arcade games & more, until you finally reach the peak (the highest viewing platform in Hong Kong) and are rewarded with the most breathtaking views over the city. It's well worth the price and I'd highly recommend this if you're thinking about it.

    Very nice view of Hong Kong, a little crowded
    Best for those who enjoy the beauty of Hong Kong in the city center. You can admire those skyscrapers and the beautiful sea. I recommend tourists to order a cup of coffee and sit on the open-air seats on the balcony provided by the coffee shop and enjoy the leisurely afternoon and amazing view there. But there are always many people taking the tram up to the peak. So I would also recommend you to buy an Octopus Card in Hong Kong, which is widely used for subways, buses, convenient stores, because there is a separate way for Octopus Card holders to enter, which is much faster than you buy a specific tram ticket.

    A must visit spot with amazing views...
    Whether your in Hong Kong a day or longer a visit to Victoria Peak, or The Peak as it's known by locals, is an absolute must. You'll see some of the best views of the city below, across Victoria Harbour, and over to Kowloon. Multiple viewing areas are available, including the Sky Terrace and a few free ones. Shopping in two malls, numerous eateries and amazing views. You can't truly say you've visited Hong Kong of you haven't been to The Peak.

Beautiful views, but terribly run. It says the duration is 2-3 hours, but I spent 3 hours online. Times tickets mean nothing if you sell more than you can handle. It may be a must-see, but sometimes a must-see isn’t worth it.

Have you ever been to a crab buffet where the customers were all Asian? Well this was the feeling on the way up the tram. With rude people pushing and shoving for seats. Then the top was decent at best. Good views but they try to charge u extra for the best views on the skydeck. With below average eats like bubba shrimp company and overpriced souvenirs all over I just wanted to leave. But before u can, u get to experience the awesome crab buffet experience on the way back down. Skip this tourist trap.

Very touristy but it was worth the view in my opinion. Do go early as when we were coming down, the queue at the bottom was crazy long. So please, wake up early to avoid crowds.

We took the tram up to Victoria Peak at night.
It wasn't crowded, and the ride took about 8 minutes.
At the top it was crowed however the views over Hong Kong are not to be missed.
Lots of places to stop and eat from take away to a Michelin star restaurant.
A must see when in Hong Kong

It’s not necessary to buy tickets to the observation deck - there are many other ways to enjoy the view. I recommend you to walk in a circle trail - it’s approximately 1h walk on a very picturesque and comfortable way. All views during this route are really awesome - you’ll see much more in comparison with observation deck because of different points.
Also you can have drinks/snacks or meal in on of the restaurants and cafe on the territory - there are plenty of them and all of them have good views as well. And you don’t need to buy for special tickets - only for food or drinks. The view is included :)
Wi-fi is available.

The main shopping area has undergone lots of renovation but a number of the previous shops are gone. Lots of food outlest that very few people were attending. In fact the whole area was much quieter than when we last visited in 2015.
Not , if any western tourists. One great dress shop worth a visit and the views are spectacular.
Place is clean and well kept with excellent toilets.
Starbucks is the best coffee you will get here.
It was worth a return visit to see changes but we would be back.

Definitely go, you won’t be disappointed. Try to go when the weather is clear and minimal smog so you can get a great view. Recommend going up and down with the tram. Also pay extra for entry to viewing platform. Such fun. Also lovely walks in forest at the top.
