Amazing ride up and back. Very busy, but very well organized. The views are incredible with all the buildings appearing to be on an angle. On the descent you ride backwards, but the angle is so steep that if you were facing downhill, you would slide off your seat.

This is certainly a part of Hong Kong Island not to be missed. If for no other reason than to check it off your HK Bucket list. During the hot months (which is 70% of the year) it gets a big sweaty. No aircon, only open windows and slow movements. The best part is that these are normally decorated in... More

I would recommend tourists to try this mode of transportation because it represents the character of Hong Kong Unassuming, Efficient, Humble, Traditional and Diverse. Similar to what Jennifer Lopez sang "My love dont cost a thing" this transport will cost you a flat rate of HKD$2.3, pls note that you have to prepare small change, HK trams does not provide... More

One of the least expensive and fun things to do in Hong Kong. Sit up top for a better view and grab a window seat. There is no AC but the windows are always open. You get a great view of the street life and the massive crowds in Causeway Bay. It's best to be above the crowds not in... More

Great and almost free way to see the city. A good way to gauge the nightlife and get a feel for the different vibes in different suburbs.

It is a cheap way (HK $2.30) to get to see a wonderful (photo opertunity) part of Hong Kong from the upper deck - great with children as well. The trams have been running every few minutes apart since 1904, and they still transport 200.000 people every day. Keep an eye on your belongings - I have seen pickpockets operating... More

A ride on the Hong Kong tramways is an absolute must! Hong Kong is bursting at the seams with shoppers, people on business, students, tourists! Blend in with the hustle and bustle and absorb all that amazing atmosphere on a tram! We loved it!

I love the tram but I don't use it if I am busy - it takes a lot longer than MTR but it is such as cozy and cheap ride - unless it is too packed which definitely happens!
