The best seat is infront or at the side at the second floor of the Tram. Tbis is a great way to explore the city. Get yourself a coffee and ride on this transportation. It is cheap but efficient.

A few dollars, dozens of possible stops, from the old Hong Kong, to the best malls, or just enjoy the lovely ride. Don't worry , you won't get lost, just follow the rail back if you partied to hard that the service stopped.

We went on a Sunday morning. While perhaps it could be an activity in its own right for me it was more of an experience - now I have done it, I see it more as an alternative mode of transport than an outing in its own right. The tram is not the most comfortable way to travel but it... More

"Oh my God we are going to crash to that other tram" i thought as our tram enter a bend section and skirts another incoming tram by centimeters. Relatively cheap. A cho cho train for adults. Everything is narrow. The tram, the seats, the turnstiles to get inside the tram.

Get a seat on the top deck and sit in front. It's great view and often allows for taking photos. On a nice day you can open the windows and it is really a treat. Then just let yourself create your own "hop on hop off" tour - explore the stops occasionally and get back on!

Have even ever seen a double decker tram? Guess not. Here they are on both the Knowloon side and HongKong island. A great way to travel in Hongkong and for a fair price. They are actually very cheap and make their money on advertising. When you in HK will you understand why. Again, this is a must!

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.
