Using the Ding Ding is a fun way of getting around in Hong Kong. Especially if having the kids with you! Or if you just have tired legs and want to explore more of the city. Just remember to have cash with you or the...More

Getting around Hong Kong Island by public transport is easy but for a good local experience use the tram.

This was my first time on a Hongkong tram, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is slower that the MTR or the buses, but if you can spare the extra minutes, the feeling of going back in time is relaxing and very nice.

Slow ride on the tram, seated on the top deck would give you quite a relaxing and good view of the Hong Kong Streets.

What a lovely experience taking the tram from downtown to Hollywood Avenue. From the wooden seats to the scenic drive all was just fantastic.

The very symbol of Hong Kong is an important, easy, convenient and cheap transportation along the Island, there are no trams operating in Kowloon neither in the New Territories. The double decker net work has about 160 cars operating in 30 km of lines.

We used them everyday. At $2.60 (AU$0.60) a trip why wouldn’t you! They rattle, they’re bumpy and they’re crowded but they’re so Honka’s I love them. They don’t do change so either have the exact cash or use an Octopus card, it’s so easy. A...More

Just look for the tracks on the road and follow - think at causeway it went a road up from the bayside main road but generally it ran parallel to the bay front or one road in. Make sure get on /queue at back as they are too... More

There are tram stops located every couple of hundred yards along the route from Kennedy Town to Causeway Bay. They are like bus shelters. For example the one outside Admiralty is located in the middle of the roadway on a... More
