These were fun to ride since they are very different from the other public transport that I have taken and they are very reliable. This was my main form of transportation to get around and it was lovely. Must try at least once.

A cheap and easy way to look around the island, it go through the city center of the island and is recommended to ride it in non rush evening.

this thin, high, funny trains are ikons of Hong Kong Central, easy to use, great experience and sightseeing, you have to try them! Especially useful if you go from Central towards Admiralty or Causawaybay.

These trams are fantastic, a reminder of the old days of British rule. They are noisy, sometimes crowded but this is what the real Hong Kong is about. Be sure to get yourself an Octopus Card as this makes it cheap and easy to get on and off wherever you like.

Unbelievably good value! For approx. 36 pence (Uk Sterling) you can ride the tram from one end to the other. Its a super way of finding your bearings and exploring the area. We got on and did a full circle before getting off again. Sit on the top at the front if you can for the best view.

When we got up the first day, it was too early for shopping, and we didn't know where we wanted to go, so, we jumped aboard one and took an extended trip on one of the routes. Go upstairs, and work your way to the front. From there we just lowered the window for fresh air, and enjoyed the ride.... More

Recommend to take a ride from Central to Wan Chai. Just about 10 to 15 minutes and it's a great way to see downtown.

Flat fare 2.30...takes the octopus card...close up views of everything...nothing not to love. Only warning, do not go if you are in a hurry to get somewhere or meet someone because the traffic jams affect the trams as much as the cars and buses and it's a frustrating feeling. For short journeys along the coastal strip of HK island it... More

The tram is like the slowest form of transportation in the central business district in Hong Kong and we totally loved it. it feels like we were on a kinda ride that takes us to the old good time. The feeling is actually quite surreal since everything, everyone around the tram is super fast and busy. me and my girlfriend... More

Taking a ride on the tram makes me think of how people used to travel in the past. The tram is the most used public transport when it was built in 1904 and i believe it continues to be the case even till today due to how economical it is - just a flat HK$2.3 for an entire ride which... 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.
