The Peak Tramway

Running from Garden Road, Admiralty to Victoria Peak, the Peak Tramway offers an unadulterated view of Hong Kong’s skycrapers and harbor as you make your way to the top. Having been in operation for nearly a century, the Peak Tram was initially divided into three classes: First Class for British officials and residents of Victoria Peak, Second Class for British military and Hong Kong Police, and Third Class for all other people and animals. Therefore, original use of the Tram reflected the degree to which Hong Kong’s social classes were segregated. Since then, however, the Peak Tram has been refurbished and democratized, welcoming locals and visitors from all walks of life, and as the most direct route from downtown to Victoria Peak the Peak Tramway carries an estimated 4 million people up and down along Mid-Levels each year.
