I love the trams in HK! Dirt cheap (HKD 2.5) and gets you from place to place easily. It's a must try when you are travelling around HK. Enjoy the sights and sounds when you're travelling. Just be careful and not to get too excited and stick your head out while travelling. It may cause an accident.

If you're not in a rush, take a tram to your destination. These are really cheap and quite an experience. You can ride the whole line for $2.3 and soak up the city.

The trams are definitely showing their age, narrow stair case to go up the moving tram may be a challenge, but you got to try it. It is the best way to see HK by paying just $0.30 US. Try the Northpoint to Central route, you can see most of the Island in slow mode, you must seat upstair to... More

One of the best way to enjoy Hong Kong, you should try to take the tram on upstairs. The tram runs slowly, it felt like a cheap city tour.

As a HK resident, if I am not in a rush to go from lets say Central to Causeway Bay or vice versa, I will most definitely taking the tram because a) is the best to beat the traffics and b) it is so cheap (HK$2.30 for adult one way, short or long journey. Children may be 1/2 the price.... More

If you have enough time and want to have an inside look of HK island, it is recommended to take the tram and go around most part of the HK island. The fare is only HK$2.3 for each journey. I recommend to go upstairs of the tram and sit by the window side.

There is no better (or cheaper) way to see the entire length of northern HK Island. Find a time off-peak hours, go to the top deck, sit in front (or in back), and watch the neighbourhoods go by. At this price, if you see something you want to explore, hop off and get back on later. Note that North Point... More

When you come to Hong Kong, you should really take the tram journey. Some people found it slow and polluted with the open air but this is the best way to observe the busiest streets in Hong Kong island.
