Jump on board and ride the Trams up and down and relax whilst taking the odd photo and admiring the beautiful buildings. Get upstairs and get a front view as this is the best.

Hong Kong Tramways - is economical, convenient and offers a closer look of the various neighborhoods. Unfortunately, it is quite jolting for people with back problems. The abrupt movements due to the misalignments of the trolley tracks are jolting.
