Garden Road (Chinese: 花園道) is the lower terminus of the Peak Tram line. It is located on the bottom floor of the St. John's Building on Garden Road, Central, Hong Kong, 28m above sea level.
The current station comprises a single track, with platforms on both sides. One platform is used for boarding, the other for exiting the tram. As the Peak Tram is a major Hong Kong tourist attraction, long queues are common in front of the turnstiles at Garden Road Terminus.

The tram takes you to a peak on sort of a hill which actually gives a comprehensive view of Hong Kong from the top. It's really beautiful, worth the money and travel. Also it would be a good idea to combine your trip with a visit to Madame Tussauds museum if it fascinates you. However the museum here is not so good as compared to the other places. I have been there in the month of February and it is really, really chilling up there. Grabbing a nice winter wear should be a good idea. Pacific coffee is another place at the peak, which was my favourite. A nice warm coffee in a cold atmosphere with a beautiful view made my day.

This is a must-do attraction in Hong Kong, so don't let the touristy nature scare you off. This is the best way to get up to the peak. To avoid the lines, come early (before 9am) and you'll be able to get right on. I also recommend getting an Octopus card. This way you won't have to wait in line for tickets. If you come later in the day, expect to wait for at least an hour.

The view at the observatory was stunning, but the long wait for the tram was probably not worth it. We came here on a Sunday afternoon (probably the peak hour) and we lined up for 2 hours just to get the tickets for the tram :( After that we had to battle with other tourists in order to get on the team! Would recommend taking a taxi instead..

The place to go on Hong Kong Island. We almost missed it as we thought we were not going to have enough time to catch the last Big Bus ride which was at 18:50 coming down from the peak if we decided to go up there! But because we had FAST-TRACK Peak Tram tickets which we got from the Big Bus ride deluxe ticket, we were on the peak in less than 30 minutes thanks to quick decision taking, to the fast-track Peak Tram tickets which saved us hours of wait time in the queue, and Big Bus altogether!! The best experience so far in Hong Kong as it combines history (built 130 years ago, 1888) with modern life today. So take the tram and go to The Peak for a breath-taking, stunning and romantic Hong Kong! You will love it. Dress well in the winter as it is very cold at night. Lots of restaurants and things to do and see!

A cool experience but not worth the crazy wait. Try to sit on the right side going up as that has the best views. I recommend buying tickets online so you can skip the line. We bought our tickets via Klook, so were able to skip the line and only waited 20 minutes. From the length of the line, looks like others had to wait 90+ minutes. Another alternative would be to take the tram down from the Peak, as the line at the top is much shorter.

The tram is very very busy, we took a taxi up and then caught the tram back as much quicker. Lots of fun, albeit very quick. You can pay with octopus card and its very reasonable. Definitely worth a trip but if you are going up, prepare yourself for a few hours wait!

Scenic views of Hong Kong's skyline. If you want to avoid the long queue then avail of the Big Bus Tour combo tickets. If you visit during the warm months make sure you drink a lot of water and wear sunscreen. There are a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops. If you like city lights visit at night.

A well run and efficient tram to take you up to the Peak. Conveniently, there is also a cut the line ticket which costs a little more and gets you to the front of the queue, just like at Disney World. That's super convenient. It's a very short ride up the mountain, coupled with amazing scenery on your way up. There is food and drink to buy at the top.

Stunning views. Go early! Head to Victoria peak team station and take the tram up. Lines get crazy long later in the day. It drops you off into a mall (I know, more malls). The tram ticket gets you free entry to the viewing at the top of the mall. After the mall - go outside the mall (don’t take the tram back down) and take a hike up the hill to Victoria Peak! Halfway up is Victoria Peak Garden.

Great view, very steep ride. They also let you stand in the tram if there is no space. Try and always find a seat as the climb is very steep. Also for a great view try and sit on the right side of the tram.

A must see for every visitor HK. But the long (really long) queue really takes the fun out of it. Give it a miss if your legs or bladder cannot take it. European tourists probably have seen better ones. PRC tourists may think there are free meals or giveaways at the top.

The best views in Hong Kong. Gets very crowded during the day (rain or shine). Allow at least 3 hours to get there and back. Otherwise consider walking

It's a long line for the tickets. Once you have the tickets though it's pretty quick. I think we waited under and hour. The ride is short, but if you are on the right side (facing forward) you have a great view of the city for a good piece of it. It dumps you into a bunch of souvenir shops at the exit, which is frustrating because you're fighting to get through. The upside is going to the sky terrace can be part of your ticket which means you can go to the top to see the city.

There are two ways to go up and down the peak. The fastest way is to take the Peak Tram, the other option is to take the bus. The tram offers great views of the island during the ascent. however, the line up to buy the ticket for Tram was insanely long and there was no shade to protect us from the sun. One way to avoid the line-up is to ensure you have the Octopus card with enough cash balance for the ticket up and down. The Octopus card allows you to skip the line and go straight to the entrance. We only found that out after waiting 30mins in line. I'd suggest taking the bus back down for a different view and experience.

This is a tourist trap. You need to wait downstairs to get a ticket, wait to get in the tram and upstairs you need to dig through 4 floors of shopping (the touristy things) and then... you need to queue again to get of the peak. 2 stars because the view is stunning (if you didn’t gave up in your expedition to the top floor.

A fun historic looking tram that moves almost at a 45° angle. However, the line to get tickets and get on can take hours to go through. The line going down at night took at least 1hr if not 2. The line going up can take more than 3hrs
Anna Warkocka | Jul 29, 2018
The line is hours long. The tram itself is historical and offers nice views on the way up and down. Consider buying the ticker upfront in one of those “skip the line” rackets
