I loved my experience! We didn’t have to wait in the ticket line at all. There were English speaking people to help us. Once we got to the top, we got free entrance to the photo area with our ticket. It was incredible and the views were amazing. Be sure to leave a couple hours for this because there is so much to do up there! We only had 1 hour at the top due to our crammed schedule because of our layover. However, I recommend giving yourself more time to shop, drink, eat and enjoy the amazing views!

I bought it at the last minute and everything worked perfectly, because the rows (skip the line) were avoided and we enjoyed the site that we had pending. The email had very well. The access code on the entrance turnstile and we access immediately. (it was high season)

Very useful to see and to learn about the city of Hong Kong but unfortunately it was very fogy we couldn’t see anything with the train on top

Definitely worth a visit just be careful the photos cost a fortune!

Worth a bash and it was a good experience. Worth the money!
