Since 1904, trams have been running from East to West of Hong Kong Island. Over the last century, Hong Kong Tramways witnessed the development of Hong Kong, and the tram remains an efficient and the most economical mode of public transport in Hong Kong. Today, Hong Kong Tramways owns and operates a fleet of 163 tramcars, including 2 antique tramcars, carrying a daily average of 230,000 passengers. It is the world's largest fleet of double-deck tramcars still in service.

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

This is a great way to see Hong Kong Island and the people of Hong Kong. Make sure you sit on the top deck to get the sights and sounds of Hong Kong. You will definitely here the ding dong ! .

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!

Great way to see the central sights of Hong Kong, especially if you sit upstairs. It is ridiculously cheap and you can hop on and off as and when you want. There are some very old trams running and they were our favourite.

Used the tram network extensively for three days while exploring Hong Kong. While slow it gives a great insight into life on the island as its used by locals as well as visitors. Never had to wait to long for one to come along and its so cheap to use. Just climb aboard grab a seat on the top deck... More

That's the cheapest and pretty tourist friendly attraction in HK. Like in the UK you pay up front when entering the tram 🚋. Be sure you have some change on you while getting on the tram. The most trams, maybe all of them lol, are double decker. They also have windows with no glazing , at least the ones I... More

I already made my mind that when I visit HK I have to ride the ding ding even once. You just cannot simply come to HK without riding it. It is very clean and plenty of seats..not sure during the day since we ride it during night time. You can just simply hop in and out where you find their... More

A convenient and inexpensive way of travelling around hong kong. Frequency of tram is very high so you need not worry if you just missed one. Downside is that the tram (or the driver) does not notify you when you reach your stop so best be on a lookout when you're on the tram.

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.
