A must for all tourists, kids love this!

Absolute must! $2.30 HKD per ride Go at night so it's less busy to enjoy the view and fresh air! Would love to purchase a small ding ding as a souvenir but couldn't find it..

If you are not rushing for appointments, why not spend $2.30 and you can stay on the tram travelling from east to west to enjoy the local scenery. Best to go upstairs for great view.

Tram is the oldest transportation which is still running in HK. The tram line only reach partly of the Hong Kong Island. Many tourist find this is the best way to experience HK island, but frankly, not necessary to take a tram from the start to the end, it just take so long as there are many many stops along... More

The MTR is fast, efficient and modern. Everything the team is not. Nevertheless, it's a must-do in Hong Kong. It's a lovely way to see the city; especially from the top deck. It's not air conditioned so be prepared! The need exact change so either have it ready, or preferably use the city's Octopus card which makes smaller purchases and... More

Riding this tram was a real funny thing to do! We did it just for fun. Try to go to the first floor of the tram and go sit in front of the tram for the nicest view!! Watch the people of hong kong passing by. Nice thing to do when you have enough time. We combined the tram with... More

The old style public transportation somehow attracted me a lot! It is definitely not the fastest way to move around the city but it is the best way to touch the real life of Hong Kong people! It is a must try!!

The trams are a great way to seethe Hong Kong streets in all their glory and gives a glimpse of the local flavour of the areas they travel through. We went from Central to Causeway Bay. We got off in Wan Chei because we spotted a street market which looked interesting. The tram stops at every stop, the best views... More

Fare is only HK$2.30 for any length of distance. You can pay by Octopus Card or cash. There is also a 4-day tourist pass. You only pay when you get off the tram. It’s the opposite of the buses where you pay when you get on. If possible, I would recommend to sit upstairs to enjoy the view of the... More

We visited Hong Kong in December last year and were thrilled to try the tram ride. The nostalgic good old way to travel in Central and Hong Kong island is the best way, one can travel back in time. There is no aircon on the bus and can be pretty packed during peak hours, as this is the cheapest means... More

A very cheap and relatively easy way to get around certain parts of Central. You board at the back of the tram and for the best views head to the top deck. Knowing where you are going is a requirement as there are no announcements or on board maps. If you are at all familiar with the city, this shouldn't... More

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.
