In HK, the public transportation is extreme efficient and effective. The tram system is very old and slow in comparison. A vast majority of trams don't have air conditioning, so that can be uncomfortable in the summer. In order to witness the sight, sounds and flavour of Hong Kong's streetscape the tram is the best mode of transportation. Because you... More

Our guide, Melanie, arranged our walking tour and she included this fun bus. We used almost every mode of transportation in the city. Fun.

The kids had fun. Beware that the stops on Google Maps do no correspond exactly so still need to keep an eye. Also make sure you come downstairs at least a stop beforehand. Can get very crowded during lunch hour.

Seniors pay HK$1.10 for a ride. Just don't be in a hurry. Upstairs seats provide excellent views. It can get congested downstairs. You pay at exit - with MTR card or EXACT cash.

The trams are easy and inexpensive way to negotiate Hong Kong. They are slow so make sure you give yourself plenty of time but the views are worth it.

Have been to Hong Kong several times but this is the first time I took the Ding Ding. The double deck has an old world feel and charm - though quite a squeeze, it was comfortable.

We took the Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central and walked to take in the local sites. After about 2hrs of walking we hopped on the Ding Ding and travelled from Wanchai. It was a great experience for the kids and you can see so much of The Hong Kong side

The octopus card works for the tram. It runs along the base of the Peak through the downtown area. We were on the tram at night and felt perfectly safe. As the tram is a double decker, sit at the top for the best views.

One can't visit Hong Kong without using the public transit; it's cheap and gives a great low cost tour of the city. The trams are a tourist attraction in themselves. Some are originals from the 1950's. The building in the background is the famous Prawn, a British pub on the upper floors. Enjoy!
