This is the older traditional way to go from Central to Causeway Bay and back. During the summer it can get hot, no air-conditioning on the trams for sure! But it's worth taking it at least one way. Lumbers along at a sedate pace but gives you the sense of what one of the earliest way of 'mass transit' was... More

Cheapest public transport service in Hong Kong. One price, HK$2.3 for adult per trip. Excellent method to see Hong Kong. Suggest to make two trips, one in the morning to have a feel of how busy HK is. Second visit is at night to capture the night life of the city.

This is a wonderful way to sight seeing on the costline of the Hong Kong Island. Climb to the second floor and if possible choose the forefront seat. On the sign you see the destination. If you happen to go to the wrong place, just take another tram to return. Most of the lines go from Sheung Shan to Cheung... More

For all the times I've stayed in HK, I had the privilege of enjoying for one whole day of free rides on the HK tram. But even if I had to pay, it's still a guaranteed enjoyable ride!

We were staying in the heart of Wan Chai so the ding ding was close at hand. I wanted to go clear to the end, as the "guide" books showed the ding ding went down the middle of a street with shops and people on both sides. When we got to the end there were no street vendors and no... More

Often faster than a taxi and definitely less expensive but not particularly comfortable. If you can't get a taxi, use the tram!

There are many ways to get around Hong Kong Island. Walking is still the way to go allowing you to discover otherwise hidden side streets, obsure tempels and off-the-beaten track authentic Chinese restaurants. But the heat and the distance can get too much. The MTR is a convenient and very efficient way to travel, but the biggest downside for me... More

Good way to relax and soak in all the local favors by watching the shops, people and various architecture along the tram way.

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.
