We took the tram up, which is fast but also can be very very busy with tourists. Go early or later to avoid the crowds. A very cheap attraction with a gazillion dollar view at the top. Sky lounge is worth it to let the wind blow through your hair while enjoying the view. If you're craving an even higher view, follow Mt. Austin Rd up the mountain and take the steep path to the right when you can. Take the next right when the footpath forks, and follow for about 100m and climb the stairs and you'll have a pretty secluded place to yourself with a wonderful view, right near the radio towers!

Definitely visit for the view! I'm only taking off one star because the place is really touristic and very busy when I went. Irony being I'm a tourist of course but would have been nice with less shops perhaps. Good visit anyhow.

Fear not If you decide to undertake the arduous road to the top of the peak. It’s quiet a hike but you can walk at your own pace. In any event it shouldn’t take more than 45 to 60 minutes. Most portions of the road have sidewalks until the last stretch where you may want to be extra careful and keep an eye for incoming traffic. Then the road will narrow and three will be stairs all the way to the top. The entire hike was fun for me and I did it well after the sunset under a full moon. There was very little of the road I could not see. Once at the top the view is amazing, specially at night time. Bring some snacks, something to drink and enjoy the cool view and the solitude of the peak.

Nice walk up (although beware that its another 20 - 30 mins past the Peak Tower and the directions aren't exactly clear) and a nice view but not quite as good as the Sky Deck in the Peak Tower because the view is partly obscured here by the hill. However, you can also see more to the south that you can't see from the tower.
A lot quieter than I expected.

if you're not there with a tour group, be sure to choose a day with good weather and clear skies (if possible of course). Be prepared for long queues to buy tickets to take the tram ride up, which is quite an adventure in itself, going at about 45 degrees. Its' very windy up there so do have a windbreaker or jacket at hand. Head towards the pavilion to get the best shots! (see pic)
