    Iconic Hong Kong Peak Tram Ascends the Peak Again after Makeover

HONG KONG--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) August 30, 2022 -- The Peak Tram, Asia’s oldest funicular railway and a must-visit attraction in Hong Kong, will take visitors on a spell-binding ride to the Peak again with a redesigned tramcar, terminus ushers and upgraded facilities starting on 27 August 2022. The new Peak Tram will reward passengers with a mesmerising panorama of Victoria Harbour and a fresh, enhanced experience, making it one of the latest developments in the many exciting tourist attractions and experiences in Hong Kong.

The new Peak Tram dons the classic “Peak Tram Green”, in a nod to its heritage and earlier generations of tramcars in the 20th century. It provides a 75% increase in capacity, carrying 210 passengers, and its larger windows offer an unobstructed, panoramic vista of the world-famous skyline of Hong Kong.

In addition to the modern design of the tramcar, the tram termini have been refurbished, offering an engaging and entertaining experience to passengers with five engagement zones. As they enter the Central Terminus, visitors are welcomed by the Eye of Infinity, a 10-metre-tall sculpture featuring a constantly evolving light display that embodies Hong Kong’s spirit of ascension, while Go Wild At The Peak showcases the diverse wildlife found at the Peak with a wrap-around, full-immersion video experience. The centennial history of the Peak Tram since 1888 comes alive in dynamic experiences at The Beating Heart, An Icon is Born, and Once Upon a Tram.
