The ride from Central to The Peak only takes 8 minutes and is approximately 1,365 metres long. The Peak Tower is 396 meters above sea level.
Hong Kong, The City of Life, has one of the most beautiful and stunning views in the world! Therefore it is nick named "Pearl of the Orient". So when you come to Hong Kong, you must not miss this marvellous night scene!
The Peak Tower's viewing deck (right) is located at the top level of the elevators. Apart from the view, The Peak Tower also has a "Ripley's Believer It or Not" Odditorium and a "Madame Tussaud's Waxworks Museum" where you can meet celebrities such as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and more!
Once you are onboard The Peak Tram, take a seat on the right hand side which has the better view. You may notice some buttons once you are seated as pictured on the right. Push these buttons if you need to get off at one of these intermediate stations, otherwise just ignore these buttons and wait for The Peak Tower terminus!
The station is located at Central's Garden Road St Joseph Building (Pictured in the middle), and you can reach it by the following methods:
- from Central's Star Ferry Pier, take bus 15C; or
- from Central's Admiralty Station Exit B, Lippo Centre Bus Terminus and take bus 12S; or
- if you like to walk, you can exit Central's MTR Station from Exit J2, walk along Garden Road which is in between The Bank of China building and The Cheung Kong Centre. The walk to the tram station only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
If the views from The Peak Tower and The Peak Galleria Shopping Centre are not enough for you, take a short walk to Lions Pavilion Lookout which is only few minutes away from the right of the Peak Galleria Shopping Centre's main entrance.
