This is an excellent way to travel around Hong Kong Island. Its cheap and gives you an open air view to slowly admire the surroundings. If you aren't in a hurry, you should try to travel by tram!

If you are someone who likes.. "ancient" or "retro" things, you will like the tram and its sound - ding ding. haha!! For me, the country where I am from, do not have this transport, hence, I will try to take it everytime I am in hk.

The ding-ding must be the cheapest way to get a close-up view of the sights and sounds of Hong Kong Island. These historic tram trundle along the northern length of Hong Kong island, making their way through the civic district, the financial district, and a shopping area as well as along more traditional markets and local residential areas (both middle...

Not the quickest mode of transport but a whole lot of fun. Can get crowded so getting off can be interesting. It is a great way to see the area.

Do as the natives do. Feel more secure than in a cab and just look out the window (ride on the upper level for more prospective.)

Fun to ride especially upstairs. The ride is leisurely so that it is easy to take photos. Also very cheap. Oyster cards can be used.

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.
