The Peak Tram , Hong Kong Overview

The undisputable ruler of hearts and king of sightseeing in Hong Kong, the Peak tram ride is an unforgettable experience for everyone who sets foot in it or even before that sometimes. It is the fastest mode of reaching the highest peak of Hong Kong called the Victoria Peak with the ride lasting only 7 minutes from the Central to the Peak. It is not only the journey which is spellbinding but once you reach the peak, the view from up there of the entire vista of Hong Kong is simply astonishing and unparalleled.

The most remarkable and distinguishing feature of the Peak Tram is that it is so steep scaling an ascent of 396 meters, that the buildings which are passed through actually seem to be tilted at a gradient of 4-27 degrees, almost making it feel like an unbelievable illusion! Besides being an infamous spectacle, the Peak Tram affair also offers a multitude of entertainment activities within the tower as well as shopping and food hubs at the Peak Galleria. This incredible tram that has been in operation since 1888 and comes at intervals of 10-15 minutes, is bound to woo you beyond expectations.

Route of the Peak Tram

The Tram travels from the Garden Road lower Terminus in Central to the upper Terminus at the Peak in 7 minutes with 4 intermediate stations coming in between. However, the tram does not pause or stop at these stations in routine unless a passenger has pressed the button to request to do so. These 4 stations are Kennedy Road, MacDonnell Road, May road and Barker Road. It also comes back down from the peak to the Garden Road lower Terminus.

Best Time to Visit

Being an extremely popular attraction, the Peak Tram is bound to be bustling with people almost all the time. It is recommended to go on weekdays because weekends and public holidays are the busiest days for the Peak Tram. The lines also get busy 5:00 PM onwards because people want to catch the symphony of lights show and then lines coming back get busy 8:30 PM.

Tips

1. The tram goes downhill backward without turning around and this might be scary/an issue for some people so they can opt to buy the one-way ticket of going up and come back down by Bus No. 15 (NWFB) or Bus No. 15B
2. If you have bought the combo ticket including Madame Tussauds then you should/can board the tram through the express access which will save you a lot of time.
3. Other than catching the symphony of lights show at 8:00 PM, you can also reach the Peak around 6:00 PM to witness the beautiful sunset.
4. You can avoid the long ticket queues if you hold an octopus card as that can be used directly to pay for the entry.
