Getting to Victoria Peak: The Peak Tram
The fun way to get to the Peak is naturally with the Peak Tram,
but there are also other alternatives to
get to the peak.
Of course you should try to ride the Peak Tram at least once, but if the lines are too long you should consider either taking the
bus or a taxi.
A Taxi from Central or Admiralty Station is about HK50, it is very reasonable specially if shared with others in a group.
By Bus to the Peak (Terminal at Peak Galleria): From the Central Star Ferry take Bus 15. Pay attention to take
the bus to the Peak, not the Peak Tram Termminus which is 15C. Buses run frequently, but service from the Star
Ferry starts at 10:00 a.m. If you want an earlier start, you need to take the bus 15 from Exchange Square.
We like riding the bus from the Peak back to Central, try to sit on the front in the upper deck, it is a very topsy curvy fun ride down.
Private transfers can be arranged to the Peak for HK$400/US$51 per vehicle which accomodates six. They pick you up at your hotel and bring you to
the Peak. More Info and Booking here.
Buses, taxis and private trasnfers arrive and depart from the ground floor at the Peak Galleria.
Where are the Best Views of the Harbour?
Two popular options are
There is a charge for the Sky Terrace, the Peak Galleria terrace is free. The links above will take you to the views from both terraces. I don't think
it makes THAT much of a difference, you decide.
The Peak Visitor Centre
At the Peak Piazza, check out the Visitor Centre, which is the old tram model that was in operation until 1989. It used to carry up to 62 passengers.
The newer model which operates currently carries 120.
