Almost free sightseeing tour

The tram is a nice way to see a large part of the Island from west to east. Not much air-condition and fresh air on the top floor

The ding ding tram is super cheap and the same price no matter what distance you travel (about 23p with an octopus card). It's a nice leisurely way to look out the window and see the real Hong Kong. You can get on and off outside MTR stations if you only want to do part of your journey. I recommend... More

A taste of older times, this was a very nice ride through the streets of Hong Kong. You can use your Octopus card and it is ridiculously cheap.

These tall, narrow trams are a great way to travel along Hong Kong Island for only HK2.30 flat fare (exact cash required). Sitting on the top front seats is a perfect way to see the streetscapes and take in all the contrasts of the city. An enjoyable, cheap way to see some of the city and efficiently move from place...

I did a two way trip , Kennedy Town to Happy Valley. Sit upstairs next to a window and you get a good cool breeze whilst tram is moving. Best way to see the length of HK with the harbour on one side and the peak on the other...great way to orient yourself on first visit...also pretty inexpensive...I enjoyed it... More

Board in to the tram and enjoy the scenes from upper floor. You get a free sightseeing tour (nearly free, I think the cost is $2). Once you leave the tram flash your Octopus card.

This is the one transportation you won't get lost in (just don't get on the one that say Happy Valley if that's not your destination). Yes it is slow but you get to see Hong Kong slowly (& no need to walk if u r tired). Best time is riding it during Fall/Winter time when the weather is nice n... More

The trams are a great way to transit the main areas of HK island, from Kennedy Town across to Causeway Bay and beyond. If you ride up on the top deck you get a little better view of the passing scene. Hope on and off with your Octopus card.

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.
