The trams running along the coastal edge Hong Kong of Hong Kong island are one of the best and cheapest ways to see Hong Kong island. Most of the commercial and residential development is built on the Island's northern coastline and the trams have been running along this coastline for over 100 years. As such it is a great way...

Can't go to HK without taking the ding ding (aka tram). It is the cheapest form of transport. It may take awhile to get from one location to the next but if you aren't in a hurry, it is worth it. For the best scenic view, head straight upstairs & sit in the very front row. Great way to see... More

We wanted to try this as they looked quite cool! Kind of looked like the traditional red London bus back in the day but half the size width ways! We managed to get on one and sat upstairs and just gazed out the windows taking everything in. As you can imagine it does not go as fast as other modes... More

Everyone who goes to Hong Kong Island should have a ride on these old trams. They are great fun and are fixed fare so if you want to you can go virtually for the length of the island for only a couple of dollars. Or you can take a short ride for the experience. This is the cheapest thing you... More

The look of these trams alone makes you want to try them. Very quirky and like a scene from Harry Potter!! From what we saw, they had good routes to get you around central and they're super efficient.

Tram is the best way to enjoy Hong Kong, especially if you are not in a rush. Only run on Hong Kong Island, tram had been part of Hong Kong people's life for more than a 100 years. It runs almost the full length of Hong Kong island and we, the Hong Kong people, find it convenient to travel from... More

Part of what must be one of the best integrated public transport system in a major city, the tram is a great way to get around above-ground. Frequent, cheap and simple - get an Octopus card to make it even easier.

At HK$2.30 per journey this has to be the best value ever! Hop on the tram at the back and go upstairs - sit at the front or the back and relax. Pay when you get off at the front of the bus - either Octopus / 4 day pass / correct cash

Another example of something you must do when visiting Hong Kong. Fantastic old tram service that trundle through the streets of Hong Kong. Cheap standard cost travel on a range of very iconic trams

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.
