For over 100 years, the Victoria Peak Tram has been inclining its way up Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island. The service began as a coal-fired tramway in 1888 and was electrically powered starting in 1926. Today, some 7 million people take a ride on the funicular railway every year for its spectacular panoramic views. At the top, you’ll find the ultramodern Peak Tower with its restaurants and Sky Terrace 428 viewing platform, nature trails, and the Victoria Peak Garden.

The Basics
Taking a ride on the steeply angled tram is an essential Hong Kong experience, and there are plenty of ways to make it happen. Opt for a basic or skip-the-line tram ticket, or choose a tour that includes a ride on the tram, along with visits to other Hong Kong attractions like Stanley Market, Aberdeen, Victoria Harbour, and the Mid-Levels Escalator. Travelers with a long layover in the Hong Kong Airport can ride the tram on a layover tour with airport transfer. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A ride on the Peak Tram is a must-do for first-time visitors to Hong Kong.
  • Choose between a basic admission ticket and a Peak Tram Sky Pass ticket that includes access to The Sky Terrace, Hong Kong’s highest 360-degree observation platform.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes, especially if you plan to hike the nature trails at the top.

How to Get There
If you’re not riding the Peak Tram as part of a guided tour of Hong Kong Island, the easiest way to reach the main station is by taking the MTR to Admiralty (Exit C1) or Central Station (Exit J or K). There’s also a shuttle bus from the Central bus station to the Peak Tram Lower Terminus that departs every 15 to 20 minutes. The Peak Tram is also a stop on the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour.

When to Get There
For the shortest lines and the sparsest crowds on the observation decks at the top, plan to ride the Peak Tram first thing in the morning. Weekdays are generally quieter as well. If you visit on a public holiday, weekend afternoon, or in the evening before the city’s Symphony of Lights show on Victoria Harbour, expect long lines to board.

Other Ways to Get to the Top
If you’re greeted by a long line at the Peak Tram station, don’t worry; there are other ways to get to the top of Victoria Peak to enjoy the views. Bus 15 takes passengers from Central Station to the Peak, and Route 1 of the minibus will also get you there. While more expensive, it’s also possible to take a taxi to the top.
