The slow but cheap Ding Ding is one of the must-ride for tourists. If you are not in a hurry, take a Ding Ding and enjoy the street view of the Hong Kong side!

The map of history, heritage, culture and city development all lay under the route of one single transportation. Hong Kong Tramways is definitely the light of the city allowing you to travel around Hong Kong Island linking East and West in a convenient, highly accessible and reasonable price.

Built by the British, now run by a FRENCH company (!!!) Hong Kong Tramway as much as San Francisco tramway or Lissabon Tramway are landmark transport means that have this special magic ! Used by tourists but as much as by locals, this means of transport is second to none to enjoy round trips along Hong Kong streets. That is by all standards the fastest and most relaxing way to experience the buzz and vivid life of Hong Kong. And it is cheap - so cheap that it is a must !

They can be very crowded and slow and there is a trick to getting on, but catching the tram through the centre of Hong Kong can be a bit of fun. The best trip is probably between Central and Causeway Bay. As the tram trundles down the middle of the street, you get a good chance to see the city.
To get on, make your way to the tram stop in the middle of the road, and join the throng of people who are usually waiting for the next tram. Don’t make the mistake of aiming for the front doors. That’s the exit. It’s a bit back to front but to get on, you use the back doors where there is a turnstile and you leave through the front doors and pay as you get off.
At a flat rate of HKD $2.60, it’s the cheapest ride in the city, beating even the Star Ferry.
You can’t buy tickets beforehand. Either use an Octopus card (these are incredibly handy for all transport) or drop the coins in the box by the driver when you leave. The only catch with using cash, is that you’ll need to have small coins because they won’t give you any change.
Be warned, the line to get on is not very orderly but the trams come frequently so if you seem to get pushed out of the way the first time, there will be another one along very soon.
The fare covers whatever distance you travel so you can hop on and hop off whenever you like. For general getting around, the MTR train system is much more efficient. It’s also cheap and is fast and easy to use. Taxis are also inexpensive and safe in Hong Kong.

A fun way to get around if you have time - but not so in summer when it can get crowded and hot (2nd level is more breezy and less exhaust fume from the traffic). I hopped on one lately and was surprised to find it air-conditioned. Now these are probably far and few in between so I would not suggest waiting for one - but if you happened on one during the summer then worth considering.

the famous local hong kong tram is one of the oldest transport available in hong kong for the past tens of years.. everyone likes it cause it is slow and nice - though at times during peak hours is a hassle to get in OR get out of the tram, it can be a slow transport compared to our famous MTR ( Metro) and or Bus servcies available all over hong kong - but it is a MUST try for all travellers to hong kong.

At HKD 2.3, it is probably the cheapest public transport for you to get around the northern shore of Hong Kong Island. You can hop on and hop out of the tram at a flat rate of HKD 2.3.
Moreover, it emit zero greenhouse gas (electric powered) and it doesn't even have air-con (rush for the 2nd storey during summer).

If you want to skip the MTR these trams are the best 40 cents you’ll ever spend. Pick one up in Central and checkout Causeway Bay. I believe that one tram operates as a restaurant. Note places to visit as you cruise on by. They get pretty crowded but follow the locals.

Love the ding ding..a slow and easy way to appreciate the city view and watching people hurrying on the streets from the trams top floor. It's also economical. You pay HKD 2.60 for a flat fee and travel from the very west to the very east
