Owner description: Since 1904, trams have been running from East to West of Hong Kong Island. Over the last century, Hong Kong Tramways witnessed the development of Hong Kong, and the tram remains an efficient and the most economical mode of public transport in Hong Kong. Today, Hong Kong Tramways owns and operates a fleet of 163 tramcars, including 2 antique tramcars, carrying a daily average of 230,000 passengers. It is the world's largest fleet of double-deck tramcars still in service.

I got on the tram in Central after passing through the pedestrian subway filled with many many people sitting on cardboards on the floor sharing food, talking and enjoying each other's company. Then I realized that it was Sunday. This is what they do on their day off. The culture of the live in maids in Hong Kong. Anyways, back to topic. Before you get on the tram, make sure to read the sign on the top as to where the tram goes. I thought they all made the same route until my mom and dad pointed it out to me. HA! We wanted to get on and go to the end stop in Shau Kei Wan to have a bowl of fish ball noodle. Paid only $2 and on the tram for like 1 1/2 hour from one end to the other was kind of cool. The seat were a little hard, all made of wood but it just has that nostalgic feel to it. Well worth the money you pay. Not to miss!

the best way to see Hong Kong Island. Cheap, convenient. we are avid, avid walkers, but this was much more pleasant than walking down a crowded and dirty Hennessy.

These moving elevated walkways offer myriad glimpses into the life of everyday people. they only go in one direction at a time: down from 6:00 am to 10:00am and up from 10:00 to midnight. Take them up, getting off and on whenever you see something that catches your fancy.

Ding Ding Tram is called this because the bell they have that makes the sound “ding ding”.
It is a traditional transport, very charming and very cheap, still used nowadays by locals. It is not only for tourists. Choose your destination or go without one. As this is not for tourist it will go from one point to other and if you want to come to the starting point you need to take another tram. Drivers usually don’t speak English.
As it is an old way of transport, seats are not comfortable, it’ s wood benches, it doesn’t have air con and might be a little too hot, depending on that day weather.
The ride cost is only HK2.30 and is better to have coins or the Octopus card, a prepaid card that can be used on the MTR also as well as on the bus, and even some shops.
You get on the tram through the back door and get out through the front door, and you pay just before you get out.
I love to take the tram and my kids also like, they like to go to the top deck (trams have two decks) and if you seat in front you can take some nice photos and enjoy the ride.

I love the trams. It is a nice, easy, cheap way to get around in Hong Kong and with a view!
I started to use the trams because some years ago we choose a hotel away from the MTR that had a tram stop in front and we decided to try to use it as it was much cheaper than getting a taxi.
It is incredibly cheap at HK2.30; make sure you have coins or an Octopus card that you can use also on the MTR and buses as well as for shopping in 7/11 and some other places. There are a lot of trams, just check your destination or go without destination.
It gets quite busy during peak hours as the locals get out of work and go home.
