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.
