Make sure you do a tram trip during your visit to HK. It's really cheap ($2.30 per trip at time of writing, get an Octopus card), you travel with locals and you get good views from the top deck. The tram network covers quite a large area too.

We went all the way to North Point from the Western Market in the tram. This is a great way to see the various areas along the northern side of the island, but to avoid the crowds! It's perhaps slower than other public transport but from the top layer you get great views of the streets. Well worth taking the... More

We would ride from Central to Quarry Bay. The night scene is beautiful so many neone signboards and just the hustle&bustle of HK. A truly great way to experience HK Island

I take the ding ding whenever I can. Sure it's much slower than MTR (it mostly runs in parallel with the Island line), but I love sitting on the upper deck and watching Hong Kong move by - especially at night. On top it is dirt cheap

Inexpensive and slow, this is a must for all visitors. You can soak up all the local flavor as you make your way through busy streets. Sit up top and get a good window seat. You pay on the way out, currently HKD $2.30, which is something like USD $0.35. Bargain!

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.
