Hong Kong Travel Dictionary: Peak Tram

Hong Kong Travel Dictionary - Quick reference for you

Peak Tram

The Peak is one of the must go places in Hong Kong. On a good day, you can see stunning metropolitan Hong Kong from the Peak. There are multiple ways to approach the peak: by walk, bus, taxi or by the Peak Tram. 

The Peak Tram itself is a tourist attraction and it is a bit pricy. However, it is worthwhile. Travelling on the Peak Tram is a unique experience that offers plenty of photo opportunities. You will admire how the engineers built this cable car service a century ago. The most difficult part of the journey is to find the station itself! You need to look for the "Garden Road Peak Tram Lower Terminus", which is somewhere between Central, Admiralty and mid-levels. The best way to go there is by foot. While it may look easy on the map, it is not easy to find. We recommend two routes. The first one is to start from Central and walk up Garden Road and aim for United States of America Consulate, which is opposite to the Peak Tram Terminus. The second approach is starts from Admiralty MTR station and walk through Hong Kong Park. Both routes from Central and Admiralty is an uphill that takes around 15 to 20 minutes, if you can find the terminus that is. The simple alternative is to get a taxi, tho, it would take the fun of exploring away.
