Great fun, Took this from Kennedy Town to Central just for old times sake as MTR now goes all the way. Slow because of the traffic and lights but still unique, a bit like the Star Ferry.

My husband and I had our anniversary during our stay in Hong Kong. We jumped on the tram the evening and just did some sightseeing. It is relatively cheap and well worth while to see most of the city!

It is a good way for tourists to travel on Hong Kong island, through the busy city. The fare per trip is cheap. You can also use Octopus card for the payment. It is a way to experience the local life of Hong Kong people.
