Originally built, 120 years ago, to transport the wealthy people living in The Peak from the Central District, it is now mainly a tourist attraction, transporting visitors to Victoria Peak. It really is a lot of fun, although when we were there it was really hot inside.

Tips on Visiting:

  • Try to go at less popular times, otherwise the lines are really long. Usually for sunset they are crazy.
  • There is nowhere to buy food or drink (except a roadside stand) when waiting in line to go up. There is lots to buy at the top.
  • If it's busy people may push to get on the tram
  • Sit on the right hand side to get great photos as you ascend.
  • If you want to see both the night and the day view - go twice, once early day and once after sunset, otherwise it is really busy.
  • If you have never seen a wax museum or like wax museums, check out Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
