The Excelsior, Hong Kong

The Peak Tram is the one that will lead you to the Peak Tower while if you choose to go by bus, you will arrive at the Peak Galleria. These buses can either be the green minibuses or the Hong Kong general public bus. Victoria Peak invites more and more visitors each year, as a proof, each peak tram had 9, 500 average passengers per day, and that is over 3.5 M head counted annually. The ride only takes 7 minutes which will cost $30HKD. The availability of the operation starts from 7am until 12 midnight daily for a week.
There are a number of shopping facilities and different restaurants housed in both of these buildings.
