Used the trams daily from Quarry bay to Admiralty. Regular and cheap 28P for each journey . Not the fastest , but you get to see the real Hong Kong. Remember to use octopus card .

The old trams on HK island were installed by the British and are running efficiently now as they ever did a great nostalgic way to look around HK island. Cheap as well

Don't get this if you're only going a few stops as it's difficult to get to the front. You get on at the back and pay as you leave which is on the front. However you have to wriggle your way through other people to get off. Saying that it's quick and cheap and a traditional way to travel.

Always try and get a seat up the top near the front windows. It's a great way to get around and see the streets of Hong Kong. My friend and I did this on our first day there to try and get our bearings. They can get crowded too, especially at the end of the working day. When we were... More

We used the tram a few times, they are old and quaint and double decker! At only HKD2.30 per ride the trams are cheap to use. Octopus cards are welcome. They are frequent, not heated or air conditioned so expect to be a bit chilly in winter as we were and I'd imagine hot in summer. They're a great way... More

Not just for the historical value, but these trams do work well. It's a comfortable ride all the same.

The trams are old but efficient and the easiest way to hop on - hop off along Victoria Harbour on Hong Kong Island. From East through Quarry Bay, North Point, Causeway Bay, Wanchai and Admiralty to Central the view from the top deck is of new and old Hong Kong. On a warm day the natural ventilation and shade is...

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.
