There are many Ding Ding Cars so we always had seats to enjoy the view. No traffic jam for Ding Ding. Very clean.

We decided to go on the tram just for the experience.We had no idea where to go so we boarded the tram & just went for the ride. It was very interesting seeing the sights of Hong Kong Island from the top deck. We just stayed on board & then returned back to our original point of boarding. We have... More

It’s a “must-do” for me whenever I drop by HK, as I grew up watching their movies! Plus if you come by during cold season, it’s so refreshing with the breeze on face.

The tram is a good alternative to other public transports that you have taken. Gets pretty cramped up and crowded, but cheap and worth the try. We took the dingding to Causeway Bay and it was a pretty smooth ride!

This was highly ranked on this website, so I made sure to get on a ding ding. My wife and I got on at about 10 am, but already it was warm and sunny. No A/C. We got seats on the very front of the upper level. Very slow ride, and after about 10 minutes, the novelty wears off and... More

Great way to tour. This is a nice experience to see parts of Hong Kong but not the only way. Kitsch and cute but not amazing for me. Worth to use if a lot of time.

Taking the tram from Sheung Wan or Central to Wan Chai or Discovery Bay is a great way to have a quick look at the most important urban areas in the island and will give you a clear idea of how the city looks like and how it's organised. Even if it's quaint and fun to ride, it's not exactly... More

Good way to see the sights of the bustling city, we did a Sunday trip which was interesting. Be wary it can be quite hot on the trams

Credit to the folks who kept this traditional tramway running after all this years. Despite the fact that it took up a big portion of the main road, it's maintenance and effort to upkeep it from operating. And its only Hkg$2.30 to have unlimited journey ride. Kudos!

If you need to travel in Hong Kong, this is the best option. It is cheap, fast and unforgetable, if you travel at the upper deck.
