The Ding Ding is a tram that runs along the northern part of Hong Kong island. It is open air and runs quite slowly, so that you can see everything really well. It is a super cheap way of sight-seeing! Sit upstairs for the best...More

Well worth jumping on board to see the real Hong king - it takes a while depending on traffic but you get to see the different neighborhoods along the way - very easy to use - just tap octopus card on way out - inexpensive

Hopped on this and had a fun bumpy trip around the island. Very cheap, and get an Octopus card to hop on or off as often as you like.

It is cheap to ride. The service is frequent. There are only 2 lines so can't go wrong. Go on the 2nd floor to get a different view of HK.

Felt like we were in an Harry Potter film. Was so much fun I didn't want to get off. Great way to get around Hong Kong and see the city. Very clean and safe. Felt like I was one of the locals!

These double decker electric trollies are a great way to see the city. They cost next to nothing to ride and offer a great view as the slowly make their way across town. They come every minute so you'll never have to wait long.
