The Hong Kong Trams are synonymous with the city. The trams are often decorated with advertising but it seems to add to their charm particularly with Hong Kongs reputation as a shopping Mecca. It's a cheap and fun way to travel along the Hong Kong Island through Central.

The tram (ding ding) may not be the most efficient way to get from one end of HK Island to the other, but the hustle and bustle you see from the tram is much different from what you'll see in the MTR (subway). It's true that sitting on the top deck is a better viewing experience--more panoramic, less likely to... More

Local traditional transport! Cheap too! If you have time and the weather is nice- try it! Had a simple ride from Kennedy Town to Sheung Wan and this was worth the effort vs the MTR!

You have to take a trip or two on the tram. We travelled on it quite a few times and always went upstairs and tried to sit at the front. It's also a really easy way to get to Happy Valley races.

This is my favourite pastime for sightseeing Hong Kong. The fare is cheap for long distance. Normally I will travel from Kennedy Town to Quarry Bay or even to Sau Kei Wan. I will travel to and fro by changing my seat from right to left and this will take me about 2 hours sight seeing. This is a good... More

A lovely way to travel on Hong Kong Island. There is a map at each stop with a number at the top so you can figure out how many stops you have to go and what the number of the stop is. Be careful when you get on at the back if you are not a petite person. Lift your... More

the tram ride was amazing - go before sundown and remember to take a jacket - it was freezing when we were there, take a camera - you will be struck:)

I used to work in Hong Kong and I would take the tram almost every day. It may not be the fastest form of transportation in Hong Kong but it is a great ride. It gives you a great meandering view of the Hong Kong streets and a glimpse into the bustling beauty of the city. I took guests on... More

this is a quaint, old fashioned way to get from A to B. Not the fastest way to go but certainly an experience worth trying once.

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.
