Go by MTR to King's Park and take the tram from the terminus to the Market. That way you can enjoy a good seat in front for some rewarding views. Takes about 1h and costs 2.4HKD.

This tramway is the legacy of Hong Kong and that they have received from the British. A slow but great way to explore the city. Since it is slow, I don't recommend for travel purposes.

Seeing the street cars on the city streets is awesome and shows the uniqueness of Hong Kong's past. The tram system is a great compliment to MTR subway system, but just riding on the tram is so much fun.
