This transport does not accept the three-day transport pass. Only exact change (which we didn't have). A friendly local paid our fare for us (about 75cents US for two). The driver was super grumpy and non-communicative.

Every time I go to Hong Kong I will take rides on the wonderful iconic Ding Dings even if I don't want to get from A to B but just for the pleasure of the ride. I love sitting in the upstairs part.
