Owner description: Since 1904, trams have been running from East to West of Hong Kong Island. Over the last century, Hong Kong Tramways witnessed the development of Hong Kong, and the tram remains an efficient and the most economical mode of public transport in Hong Kong. Today, Hong Kong Tramways owns and operates a fleet of 163 tramcars, including 2 antique tramcars, carrying a daily average of 230,000 passengers. It is the world's largest fleet of double-deck tramcars still in service.

“Must do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Really enjoyed the trip up the rock face on a bit of history. View from the top worth the effort. Don't bother with the skydeck

“The kids love them!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

You must do this if you go to Hong Kong. They are cheap and a great way to see the city. The boys really thought they were cool.

“Tram ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

BEWARE!..... the tram ride is from Shueng Wan to the other side of the Hong Kong Island, and does not come to the starting point as we expected.

“Cheap convenient with an Octopus card”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Cheap, convenient with an Octopus card. You walk less than taking a subway, get a nice view and more breeze on the 2nd level, slowly easing forward as people get off. Be careful to read the final destination as the train might take you to Happy Valley instead of your destination.

“Original & fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The trams are ancient, cheap and great for snapping photos as you crawl your way through the busy streets. Try to sit on the top deck at the front or back and try to buy and Octopus (transport) card from the MTR station first as this makes the whole thing a lot easier
