The double decker trams are creaky, slow and wonderful. Just sit on one to the end of the line and back to get your bearings. Up the rickety stairs and right in the front row of course! Unbelievably cheap and a great local experience.

This is not a commute tram! But you can see very interesting neigbhorhoods and see parts of the City that would otherwise escape you.

Not many things qualify as novel, historic, resourceful, essential for getting around and sheer fun for tourists. Great experience. It took a moment to figure out how to get on. LOL!

Dont expect amazing views or a guided tour. This is an active mode of transportation. Board at the back and touch off at the front when you depart

For HK $ 2.30 flat fare you can travel the tram across the city. Exact fare or a charged octopus card must be used.

We missed the two day free pass with a tour purchase but just even a short but very pleasant "retro" experience with the Ding Dong is fulfilling. It is what you see - pleasant, interesting, old-fashioned way to see parts of the city.

Caught the tram in central HK and travelled eastwards. It gives you a great view of HK at work and is easy and cheap to use. Try and get a seat on the upper deck at the front for the best views and a bit...More
