Fun way to travel

Inexpensive and a great opportunity for photos. Would recommend using during the day and in the evening (so you can enjoy the lights!).

The trams are a lovely way to get around HK. They don't have air con but you don't need it when all the windows are open. These teams are a lovely link to the old Hong Kong. They make a bit of noise and they do wiggle and giggle but this made the ride more memorable. My two young boys... More

Fun way to see Hong Kong. Most of the time crowded but worth the ride. Easy to get on and inexpensive.

These aging historic double-decker trams traverse the entire northern side of Hong Kong Island and are great fun. There are plenty of stops and trams so you don't have to walk far or wait very long to catch one. Hop in at the back and pay exactly $2:30 HK coins into the coin counter next to the driver when you... More

While the trams are slow, crowded and rather uncomfortable, it is still a part of the Hong Kong cityscape. They add a good element of how things used to be, and they have a certain charm. The trams are amazingly cheap. So if you don't mind sitting on wooden benches or standing hunched over (if you are tall), then the... More

There's no better way to experience Hong Kong Island than trundling along in a tram. Cheap and cheerful!

These trams are again, a must do thing if you are in the area. Ensure you understand that there are several routes for the trams and the best way to find your stop is to get the stop number from the info board then keep an eye out for your number. The trams we were on were very busy and... More

The tram is your best, not to mention most cost efficient way to explore Hong Kong. Start in Kennedy Town, right by the Merton, so you can head upstairs and grab the front (or back) seats. Don't pay when you get on, and you enter from the back of the tram. Then enjoy Kennedy Town, the scented Sai Ying Pun... More

Ride on Hong Kong tram will give you a very local sightseeing experience. You can travel the whole journey from Western district to Shaukeiwan. Western district is famous on chinese preserved food, then central is the banking centre, then causeway bay the shopping area, shaukeiwan, previously the fishing village. You can hop on and off along the whole line. Many... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers 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.
