We took the tram and got lucky getting the "frontrow seats" Perfect to take pictures of the city, the architecture, to feel the vibe of the Hong Kong Island part and we got off where we thought it is nice to walk around, like Hollywood Road, North Point and of course Admiralty. It's great for Instagram too.

Good and unqiue experience to take the tram on different lines. Can be a bit confusing for the inexperienced and good to download their tram maps before boarding any. Good for those who want to see the real Hong Kong after the trams go beyond the central areas.

We just visited Hong Kong for the first time and found this a great way to get around. The route basically parallels the MTR line and while it's not as quick from point to point, you certainly see more sights and experience more of the local culture.

No need to pay a high price for a tour. Just hop on the tramway. From one end to the other it takes more than an hour and cost only a few cents. You get a nice overview of the center of the city.

We took the tram on the journey to Dragon's Back. It's a fun experience but I wouldn't make a habit out of it as it takes ages! Soooo slow. You use the Octopus card, and you get on at the back, and get off at the front...

Trams run regularity and are easy to use. Very cheap (£0.25 per trip) Plenty of regular stops. They get very busy and cram on as many people as possible.

Inexpensive and unique way to tour the island. Sit on the Upper deck and open the window to take in the sights. The trams are tight and a bit rickety but perfectly fine.

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.
