Very convenient way of moving around HK island. Fairly cheap to move around, and also very practical. And also a fun way of exploring the city for first timers. You could literally spend a whole afternoon just on this trams! Get a Octopus card upon arrival at the MTR station, unused portion will be refunded back together with HK$50 deposit.... More

The Ding Ding rides through HK were a great way to get around like the locals do. The hop on and off style of inner city travel is perfect for spontaneous rides. And the fare (a fixed amount one way - no matter how many stops you ride) is so cheap it is care-free to get around. We loved it!

Great old-fashioned ride, sit on the upper floor and take mental and digital pictures of street life. Was crowded on Sunday!

These are a great and very cheap way of travelling around Hong Kong, although if you're on the taller side (like myself) you'll definitely feel conspicuous when you get on! Stops are easy to spot, the trams only take cash and all the tram stations we visited were on Google Maps so if you're unsure where to get on/off this... More

Riding a tram from Central to North Point is one of my favourite things to do on Hong Kong Island. Pick your time - out of peak hour - sit upstairs to get the best view. The market at North Point is not large but has a great buzz. I bought some street food and just wandered for a while.... More

If you have some time to spare, this is a great way to see a different side of Hong Kong. We went over to Hong Kong Island and took the MTR to Shau Kei Wan station to start our tram ride from the Shau Kei Wan tram terminus (really just a circle of track in the street). Firstly, don't make... More

If you like trams, you will love the HK trams. Slow, bumpy, sometimes crowded, they are inexpensive and an absolute joy to travel on. From the upper deck you will get a good view of the City and all of its many features. For me, one of the highlights of HK

OK I confess that I'm a little nuts about trams, however I consider that HK trams are worth it. For one thing they are a practical means of public transport, used by the locals everyday, quirky, cheap and fun for grown ups and kids. These are not state of the art, high tech vehicles, more steam trains to electric super... More

A very interesting way to see the town in slow motion, it will take you to where you wish and you will enjoy it. Note, you will need to pay while getting off the tram and they aren't allowed to give change back as they use a drop-in box, so you need to pay the exact amount otherwise the change... 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.
