On this #ChillOutSunday, why not take a leisurely ride on Hong Kong’s Peak Tram?
Plans for the Peak Tram began in May 1881 in order to connect Murray Barracks to Victoria Gap. These plans were approved in 1882 and with that approval, Hong Kong High Level Tramways Company was founded. The Peak Tram was the first cable funicular in Asia and stretched 1350m through five stations!
It is currently open Monday through to Sunday from 7am to midnight, including bank holidays and is the best way to travel the Peak with trams coming every ten to fifteen minutes.
The Peak contains restaurants, shops, entertainment facilities and the famous Sky Terrace 428 which is 428m above sea level. It is the highest 360 degree viewing platform in all of Hong Kong and offers the most jaw dropping panoramic views of the Hong Kong landscape, including both the city and the countryside. The Sky Terrace is open from 10-11, Monday to Friday and 8-11 on the weekend and bank holidays.
Based on an adult ticket, the Peak Tram costs HK$40 and a ticket for the Peak Tram and Sky Terrace totals at HK$83.
