Peak Tram station on the Peak is located inside the Peak Tower.
The building itself is worth mentioning. It was designed to

It looked like an oval hamburger on stilts. It sure looked like
The new design, as pictured to the left and below, is also

the Peak Tower there are shops, restaurants,
a wax museum, plus an observation deck. There is even a hamburger
fast food restaurant that has a few tables out on the balcony
with a view down toward the harbor.

At the top of Peak Tower is an observation deck to see the
great view, but there's now a small fee charged. But then, you
can get a free view in a pavilion down the street. (2008.9.22)
The best time to go to the Victoria Peak is later afternoon
on a clear day. Stay there to see the scenery change from daytime
to dusk and to nighttime. Like I said, the worst time to go is when it is
rainy, cloudy, or smoggy. There'll be no view to speak of.
