Review: Avoiding Long Lines at Peak Tram with Klook

Our family recently traveled to Hongkong and we're not on a Tour Package, so I decided to avail Klook's Discounted Offer and make our own itinerary.

While searching online for activities to include, I found Klook Travel Guide.

Actually, Klook is new to me, at first I was hesitant to book online but after reading positive reviews that came from "real users" I confidently purchased via credit card.

I was sold at their exclusive promotion on "Peak Tram Fast Track Combo" (The Peak 4 in 1 Combo) Fast Track.
  • Peak Tram Fast Track
  • Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
  • Trick Eye 3D Museum
  • Sky Terrace 428 


The Queue Jump or Special Line entry was a big relief, queuing usually takes 1 hour or more but Klook's tickets grant us VIP access and we marched straight to the front!

HOW IT WORKS:

We met Klook's Guide at Central MTR Station Exit K. The guide gave our Peak Tram Tickets and we walk altogether to Peak Tram Terminus.

Meet-up @ Central Station MTR Exit K (Street Level)
Reminder: Make sure to strictly follow your time slot. Arrive 15 minutes before meeting time. We arrived 20 minutes late and the guide no longer accept us to join on their  next schedule.

However, the Guide in charge was very accommodating with our concerns and even helped me re-arranged my itinerary.

I asked  him to please let us use this day for this activity because rescheduling means we have to move our other activities.

Sadly, they follow strict time schedule, so we just have to request to re-sched and make sure that we arrive on time. The Guide was kind enough to suggest the best time to get as I  laid down my plans for the days to come. 

The Guide suggested to take the 12pm sched and have the Ocean Park tour right after we finished the activities at the Peak. 

The much awaited Tram Ride!
At the top of the Peak, the guide gave us our attraction tickets and let us  enjoy the rest of our visit on our own time.

Here's some of our photos as we met the stars in life like wax work!









After Madame Tussauds, we were supposed to use the tickets for Trick Eye 3D Museum and Sky Terrace 428, but we were told by my husband's side of the family (btw, we were 4 families traveled together) not to use it anymore because it's 3PM already and we should be heading to Ocean Park instead.

If I were to ask, I will choose to use those  remaining tickets for the two attractions. Why? we paid for it, and I think an hour spent with these attractions would not hurt our visit to Ocean Park. Yep, nandun na, so sana tinuloy na lang. Tsk! Husband comforts me saying "Don't worry, babalik tayo ulit dito" (Duh? talaga? hahaha).


Oh well, medyo pumalpak ang itenerary... mahirap ang may kahintayan kasi if you're with a big group. Anyway, a big thanks to Klook for the Discounted Tickets especially the VIP access.

I suggest you check Klook's website to find itinerary inspiration and get discounted offers. You can also download Klook's App to conveniently book your travel experiences on the go.

How to use e-voucher? Just show on mobile or printout.

I am soooo looking forward to our next booking with  Klook on our future travel plans. You should too!

  1. We visited The Peak too and during our visit we are not in a travel package. We took the mtr and bought tickets at the tram station. Thank God the queue was not that long. There's a volume of tourists but not really over.. maybe because it was a weekday..

    1. Yep, we visited last Christmas season kasi, so as expected, jam packed! My SIL who didn't get Klook's promo waited in line for almost 2hours. Yay!

  2. Medyo mahirap talaga pag madami kaya mas maganda may allowance sa time, pero mas masaya den! We've never been to Hong Kong pero we also visited the Mdm Tussaud and Ocean Park here in Sydney! Nice yung wax museum noh? parang buhay sila! hehe :)

  3. We fell in line when we went to The Peak before. Wala pa kasing Klook that time. Okay lang sana sa amin to fall in line kahit matagal basta maayos naman, what's annoying is the mainlanders na sumisingit, haaay :(

  4. Really easier if you go there on your own as a family lang.I experienced traveling with other people and it could waste both's time plus, you like and prioritize different things so they would like to go one place but you'd rather go to another. :) The time really matters for tours. Haha We don't often go with them because we have toddlers and it's difficult to predict the kid's mood when traveling.

  5. I have been eyeing Klook too for our Osaka trip in April. The booking site is highly recommended by travellers to Japan.

  6. The Wax Museum is awesome! Haven't gone to HK yet but I often see pictures from the Museum from my FB friends. I hope we can visit HK next year, fingers crossed :) Taking note of Klook. Thanks for sharing :)

  7. I've never been to Hongkong. Actually, I've never been to anywhere outside PH pa so whenever I read tips for overseas trips or vacation, nae-excite rin ako. :D

  8. Will take note of this when we decide to visit Hongkong soon. Thanks for the tips.

  9. To be honest, I don't like going on tours because I don't want to squeeze too much activities in one day. I prefer taking time during my stay when going outside the country para mas ma-enjoy :) The good thing though with tour packages is that they are often cheaper :)

  10. Haven't been to HongKong but heard great things from friends. Kids will truly enjoy dw talaga. Will keep Klook in mind for when we can finally travel.

  11. I can't relate as I have not yet traveled outside of the Philippines, but this is a nice article for travelers or tourists. It s nice that we share tips to others to help them with their experience...

  12. Ang hirap talaga if marami kasama. Hahaha! I don't like the idea that someone might be waiting for me or I wanna go somewhere and they don't want to go there. I was wondering, are the rates above per person or is that your group already?

    ReplyDelete

    1. That rate is per head. Yep, lesson learned. Sayang talaga ang hintayan blues...

  13. haist,kaya ayaw ko sumali sa tour, kasi nakakapressure ang time, haha. I want to DIY travel cause when you've got kids, mahirap to keep up with time. But it looks like you still enjoyed your trip. So good for you!

    1. We weren't on tour, but still have to keep up with my time schedule on my diy itinerary.

    2. Hi Mommy! I have great memories at The Peak. I got engaged there :) Totally agree with your decision to do DIY travel and the move to purchase through Klook is probably the best first decision you made in this travel. We lived in Guangzhou, about two hours from Hong Kong, in 2013 to 2015 so your HK photos brought back fun memories. :)

  14. Wow I didn't know the Peak Tram lines reach that length!

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's a good tip. Klook travel is for itinerary only or can you book flights and hotels din?

    ReplyDelete
  16. At least you were able to skip that long line! It's so hard lining up especially with young kids. Keeping up with the time schedule really is a must in other countries. They're so strict with it, noh?

  19. Klook app is really a life saver since my DIY itinerary doesn't always turn up good as expected.

  20. Traveling can be so convenient these days coz there's so many options to use in booking tours and stuff. It's my first time to hear of Klook though.

  21. Ang galing nyo lang talaga sumunod itinerary! Never nangyari samin to. Lagi may di nasusunod. We're planning a trip to HK this year to visit my auntie. I will keep in mind the things you share on this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow!! Thanks for the ideas sis! I will surely remember this pag nagka chance km mg hk hehe

    ReplyDelete
  23. Too bad you weren't able to use your tickets for the Trick Eye 3D Museum and Sky Terrace 428, but it's good that you had VIP pass to avoid the long lines for the Peak Tram. I'll take a mental note of your suggestion to be on time so as not to miss wonderful opportunities when we travel to Hongkong. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ahh..sayang naman. I am hesitant to travel in a group for one reason it's hard to wait up for everybody knowing that the itinerary is time sensitive. I usually travel with no plans whatsoever- I just have my DIY list of places and bahala na..haha Exciting but I see how Klook could help with the long lines. I will try very soon since HK is next on my list. Thanks (Macy)

  25. First time to read about Klook. We were planning to go to Peak Tram but changed our mind. Buti nalang I read your post kasi I hate waiting din!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is just so timely. We are going to a family tour in Hong Kong after the schooling of the boys this school year. And this makes me doubly excited. Will certainly check on the app. Thanks.

  27. I have never heard of this site before but it sure looks promising. Nothing beats convenience and VIP treatments when you are out traveling. Long lines are just a pet peeve, especially when you are traveling with children. I haven't been to Hong Kong, but I will make sure to check this app out when we do plan for our travel there.

  28. That is also my dilema pag big group minsan nagugulo plan mo he he he. Thanks for sharing the app we are planning to visit HK next year
