Owner description: Since 1904, trams have been running from East to West of Hong Kong Island. Over the last century, Hong Kong Tramways witnessed the development of Hong Kong, and the tram remains an efficient and the most economical mode of public transport in Hong Kong. Today, Hong Kong Tramways owns and operates a fleet of 163 tramcars, including 2 antique tramcars, carrying a daily average of 230,000 passengers. It is the world's largest fleet of double-deck tramcars still in service.

It is a wonderful ride in Hong Kong Island only (perhaps not too much city has it now) if you take the tram for HK$2.3 (adult and 12-year child as well as senior citizen for $1) by spending one more hour on the upper stair. The eastbound route starts from (1) Kennedy Town to North Point and (2) Western Market to Shau Ki Wan; for the westbound one is from North Point to Whitty Street. If you do not want to go to Catholic graveyard and horse racing course, just skip your way to Happy Valley.The whole journey takes you from Sheung Wan (dried seafood products, Cat Street), Central (Hong Kong Bank head office, Lan Kwai Fong, Mandarin Hotel, Statue Square, Old Supreme Court, Star Ferry etc), Admiralty (New Legco chamber, Tai Koo Plaza shopping malls), Wanchai (Central Plaza, ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui), Causeway Bay (Sogo Department Store, Victoria Park) , North Point (Chun Yeung Street market, tram depot), Quarry Bay (Tai Koo Shing), and finally the last stop at Shaukiwan.If you follow the tram track, you won't get lost, just like from Tsim Sha Tsui to Mongkok by walking along Nathan Road in Kowloon.

Bear in mind to buy an Octopus card ($100 basic fare with $50 for deposit, you can get it at any MTR station), I think there is no need for you to buy a tourist card unless you want to keep it as a souvenir. Either paying tender fare (on tram, bus, ferry, peak tram and even train etc) or buying quick food (MacDoanald) as well as buying snacks at 7-Eleven, Circle K, Vingo etc., this value-added card not only save your time, but also it is extremely easy for you to get your refund back at any MTR station before your departure.

Wonderful experience. Go early to avoid the queue.
Take a taxi up the Peak, catch the tram back...an easy walk ( about an hour) around the Peak, excellent view of the harbour etc on a good weather day....Visit the Botanical Garden at the foot of the Peak, you wouldn't have thought Hong Kong can be that green...a good playground for the kids too....l

These run the length of the island and are only 3.5 HKD for an adult for the whole journey, the windows are always wide open when its not raining so its a great way of photographing HK from the upper deck and getting a good look at HK.

lovely way to experience the old times! though in the day it can be hard to bear the NON-AC trams over the ACon'd MTR. Our 6 years old son enjoyed alot, the views at evening market and SOGO area in causeway were overwhelming. And Yes what a lovely gesture, we also saw a Free Ride Day, which means hop-on/off anytime on any Tram for free... no charges for that day

I used the tram a lot to get around from Wan Chai. It is much cheaper than the metro and you can use your Oyster card on it. All caution is that it takes time and most of the drivers do not speak English so it's good if you know where you are going.
