After a lot of walking sometimes all you want to do is sit down, well the trams are definitely worth a trip, old and original, but certainly an easy way to travel. You get to see the lights and the upstairs of many of the older buildings. We loved seeing the laundry hanging above the streets, which you seem to... More

The ding ding is a fun easy way to ride through Hong Kong island and see the sights. I would ride it in both directions so you don't miss a thing. Frequent and inexpensive you can't go wrong if you like to see city life and people watch.

These tramways are part of Hong Kong's history so riding one was absolutely on my to-do list. Hong Kong is the only Asian city to have a double decker tram and the ride is fun. The ticket is very cheap and you can pay by using the Octopus Card. If you don't have this card, remember to carry small bills... More

Loved this almost as much as the Star Ferry! They travel east-west through the city, providing such an easy way to transport. Fun, cheap, clean and historic--all rolled into one easy ride. Felt like riding the old-time cable car in SF, but no lines or touristy crowds. You just hop on and pay when you get off! Use the Octo... More

This is a very cheap form of public transportation and it is a great way to experience the city. It moves slowly so one can soak in the vibrant atmosphere of Hong Kong while still traveling efficiently. Also, being one of the oldest forms of public transport in the city, it is a good way to experience some history. There... More

This is a nice try for me to take tramway to go sightseeing. you could find Ding Ding in the Central, and tramways have lots of stations, you should pay HKD less than 3 and you could get on this special bus.

Get upstairs and wait for a seat...right at the front is a great spot for pics - there are some sights both outside and inside the trams!! At 2.20 a ride, I can't think of a cheaper way to get across the north of the island. You pay (the exact money) when you get off at the front by the... More

When we were visiting as part of the local authority anniversary celebrations, the trams were free for one day. Hoy are we glad we took up the offer too, as it was a great way to see the Real Hong Kong, watching neighbourhoods melt into each other, a far more open view than the MTR allows. Try to get upstairs... More
