Go early! When I came back down, there were way too many people waiting to get on. Nice ride to the Victoria Peak....

We went early to avoid the crowds and the heat. Beautiful View! We rode the tram up and had a lovely walk down. Use your Octopus card to get a great discount and skip the ticket line.

I’m confused about people saying this is pricey? 86HKD or under £10/$15 USD return with access to the peak viewing platform included!

There are various tours which will meet you at central station then a 15 minute walk to the tram (I don’t want to advertise the tour I went on as I think it would be unfair to other tour operators). But mine was the above price and included our guide walking to the tram entrance. If you get a chance sit on the right hand side going up (the three seaters) same side coming down as the tram does not turn around at the top or bottom.

If you do decide to stand on the tram hold on tight as when you near the bottom going down it is very steep! Tram takes about 7 mins each way and has capacity for 95 plus 25 standing and a max load of 9000kg. So they are averaging the person out at 75kg. My tram wasn’t packed but you can wait for the next one if you wish or walk down!

It’s a bit trippy to go up the mountainside at such a steep angle (and it’s pricey for he experience) but all around fun and the quickest way to get to Victoria Peak

Without the fast track, you will have to queue for 1.5hrs or so just to buy the tickets. We booked from Klook thus, we have the fast track and only waited for 30mins to get into the tram.

Sit on the right side of the tram for views of the city!
