Victoria Peak, escalator, Man Mo Temple and Hong Kong Tram
We have 1 full day to explore HK Island. We are staying at the Harbour Plaza Metropolis and will catch a Star Ferry across to Central Star Ferry Pier. Then a bus to Garden Road Central terminal to catch the tram up to Victoria Peak. After we want to bus down from Victoria Peak to link up with Escalator, visit Man Mo Temple and catch a Hong Kong Tram just for a ride. What is the best option.

Well, walk east for about 5 minutes to Central and take Bus 5. Get off at the peak. It takes about 40 minutes and over 10HKD.
Answered by John | Apr. 08, 2021 07:34

You may either take taxi or the Peak Tram, but both these options are much more expensive than by taking bus.

Take MTR Tsuen Wan Line from TST Station to Admiralty Station, and transfer to MTR Island Line to Causeway Bay Station, Exit A. Then, walk south to it. You need to pay HKD 10 as the entrance fee. :)

Hello, it is suggested to take Tsuen Wan Line to Central Station within 20min at a cost of 11.9HKD. Leave from exit J2 and walk to the peak tram station to take the tram onto the peak in 15min, for which it costs 28HKD for a single trip and 40HKD for a round trip. And the Standard Octopus Card can be used on both means of transportation.
Answered by John | Apr. 08, 2021 07:36

There are no MTR Stations at the Peak. You can only take the MTR Tsuen Wan Line (red in colour) to Central or Admiralty station and than change for the Peak Tram or bus route 15.
