The Peak Tram opened in 1888 for the exclusive use of the British governor and The Peak’s residents, but today it can be enjoyed by everyone as the steepest cable railway in the world. The journey takes only seven minutes and is a visual experience to remember. Skyscrapers glide past at what appear to be impossible angles while the tram makes its ascent. The venerable Peak Tram is, as most passengers agree, the only way to truly experience the beauty of Hong Kong's natural wonders. Tens of millions of people from every corner of the globe have taken the ride, which affords a uniquely spectacular perspective of the city.
