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

The high lite in HK. Everybody must take a ride on it upper floor especially when it is roofless is something you can try once in your life but you will remember forever. HK is a crowdie city foul of details. So what can be better than a ride with 360 degrees visibility and 3 meters height.

A must try flavor when in HK as this transport has been used in HK for umpteen years till today. It does not move fast so it gives you a very good view of HK busy roads, especially at night Well, its not aircon, so better take be prepared to sweat if you visit HK in the summer.

Trams are an easy way to get around on Hong Kong Island and you never have wait too long. Best thing is they only cost HK$2 for a single ride.

The ding ding tram is a must do when in Hong Kong. For $2 you can travel the length of the line and see the city in a new light. Yes it is hot but sit upstairs near a window to catch the breeze and enjoy the bustling city from a more relaxed pace. There is always something to see... More

I think of the HK tramways as the HK equivalent of San Francisco's cable cars. OK they don't go up and down steep hills (for that you have to take the tramway to The Peak) but they're a quaint part of local culture, not to mention a practical way to get around. And there's no better way to see the... More

Cheap way HK$2 to travel across the island of Hong Kong from East to West and vice versa. Go upstairs and seat in the front to get the best of the street views.

Good way to see HK for a cheap price and it's a bit of living history. You can hop on and off to see anything that takes your fancy. Do try to sit upstairs and in the front for good views and to catch a breeze to cool you in the oppressive heat of summer.
