It's worth watching for sore (I wanted to wait for one to trip over something, the wheels axes are so close!), each is an individual, and the ride is dirty cheap (under 3 HKD).

We used the trams every day of our 8 day holiday, and they provided such great atmosphere. Easy to use and so cheap.

Hope the ‘ding ding’ stays as part of Hong Kong life. The public voted for it to stay on and rightly so. It is another very punctual service. Octopus card can be used and is cheap.

The Octopus is a stored valued card. Since you're from NYC, your area doesn't have an equivalent. However, the US does have a similar system. It is similar to the San Francisco Bay Area's Clipper Card. However, the Octopus... More
