Very easy accessible and affordable way to see around Central District in Hong Kong. Take it from one stop and go along the entire route to see as much as you can. I liked to be on the upper floor and stay at the window.

Tramways is another effective public modes of transport available in Hong Kong. The trams reach almost every street. Their tracks are laid down on the roads. Some streets have the trams and other vehicles using the same space while some streets are dedicated only for trams.

You pay only $HK 2.4 as you leave the tram by Octopus card or cash ( no change) no matter how far you go so just hop on and off when you see something you fancy. Signs are in English so it's an easy way to get around and see the sights. Go up to the top deck for the... More

For a few dollars this is the best transport to be on to look at the local things of Hong Kong. If you can try and find the old wooden tram, not many left

These gorgeous little 1920's trams give Hong Kong a uniqueness which you cannot find anywhere else. They come in all colours and the advertisements on them are the best ! There are no glass windows which is great for the summer - there are not too many delays and are generally the best way to get around Hong Kong.

Took my son on the tram to Happy Valley from Causeway Bay (& back again). He loves riding upstairs & pretending to drive (well he is only 4!!). The Tram is very cheap way to travel with it being just a flat fee for each journey (HK$2.30 for Adults, HK$1.20 Under 11's & HK$1.10 for over 65's). We got off... More

One of the oldest public transport in HK.Take the Sau Kei Wan route from Central, and return either on the same route or by MTR. You will see both the most advanced commercial centre and the local residential area of the new and the old local culture.

It's quite slow and w/o air-conditioning so you'd better try it in a nice day. And ideally try to avoid the peak hour, as you dont want either too many people or a traffic jam. otherwise it's nice to experience the old HK public transportation in a modern HK. btw, it's good for Pokemon players....

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres 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.
