No need to pay a high price for a tour. Just hop on the tramway. From one end to the other it takes more than an hour and cost only a few cents. You get a nice overview of the center of the city.

We took the tram on the journey to Dragon's Back. It's a fun experience but I wouldn't make a habit out of it as it takes ages! Soooo slow. You use the Octopus card, and you get on at the back, and get off at the front...

Trams run regularity and are easy to use. Very cheap (£0.25 per trip) Plenty of regular stops. They get very busy and cram on as many people as possible.

Inexpensive and unique way to tour the island. Sit on the Upper deck and open the window to take in the sights. The trams are tight and a bit rickety but perfectly fine.

The good thing about the tram is that it is very cheap to use and they drive every couple of minutes. The inside is not very high, so for taller people like me it is impossible to stand upright (we did not try the upper floor). It is also important to familiarize yourself with the network before you enter, since... More

It was fun and it was a good way to see Hong Kong from the Ding Ding tram. At least try it once when you visit HK.

I have only ridden the HK trams a few times. They are a good way to see the lower coastal parts of HK Island.

I always love taking the trams. It's a lot slower but full of charm and one can see the scenes and sights of HK. A big plus it's a very cheap mode of transport I personally feel that the trams are good for cooler days as it's non air conditioned and can be very hot during hot summers

However when we got off in the causeway Bay Area, it was just shopping. Perhaps there was more there but I didn't see it

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
