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.

“Cheap and interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This would be one of the cheapest way to travel around, costing only about HKD 2.30 per trip regardless of where you hop off. If you get the front seats at the upper deck, you will get to enjoy great views of the city and the tram moves slow enough for you to get some nice pictures. The only downpoint is that there is no announcement of the upcoming stops so you would need to have a little sense of direction by yourselves to determine the right time to hop off.

“One of the best in Hong Kong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

Great way to see Hong Kong in a slow manner. Very unusual. But you will meet a lot of local people who are always ready to help.
My kids loved it!
But never use if you are in a hurry!

“Get oyster card if you are traveling a few times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

The ding dings (local name for tram) are great. They are easy to use, nostalgic, fun.
Get a HK$150 oyster card from metro. More than one person can use per travel. Ding Di g costs HK$2.30 per travel or 30c AUD.

“Historic Must-do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

This is a must if you're in Hong Kong. It's incredibly inexpensive and a great way to see the area as it moves quite slowly, but that's a definite plus for anyone there on holiday. If I had one tiny criticism, it would be that it's not super clean; although, it is public transport, and I was on it on a Friday night, so that's not unforgivable.

“Best value ride in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Okay, the price has gone up by 30cts in the past 5 years but at $2.3 per trip this still remains the best way to see HK island from end to end. Glad to see that the private owners of the trams seem to be better placed to survive than the no-longer-so-impressive Star Ferry ride across the harbour. If only the ferry could be given as much respect and leeway by the Govt that the trams seem to get.
