The ding ding are a convenient means of transport. But be warned it takes to get around by ding ding since they will stop at every red light. Eitherway the offer you a view on the streets you won't get oherwise. Be warned if you're over 1.75m: the upper deck is not made for you :-)

This is such a fun way to travel in Hong Kong. If you can get upstairs you will have the best views of local scenery. Easy to follow and a fun way to travel. You need to get in at the back and then pay up at the front when exiting. It's a one ride fare, regardless how long you... More

Tram is the most traditional transport on Hong Kong island which you can't find it other countries. They may have something like this but they are still not trams. It is very popular among locals because of the price and views. It is quite convenient if you are living on HK island. The longest distance is from Keendy Town to... More

Took the tram from causeway bay to sheung wan. Sat at the top. Great view, great weather, great way to see the sights :) Tap your octopus card as you leave the tram at the front. Enter the tram from the back door... The locals are really friendly and helpful. Just ask them for which tram to hop into to... More

This is a good way to travel through the city from one end to the other. Don't be in a rush! It is a good way to understand the layout of the city. You can people watch; from the locals going about their daily lives to the city people rushing from meeting to meeting. You pay as you leave the... More

The super narrow double decker trams are like the cable cars of San Francisco to me. The octopus card works on the trams as well as almost all other transportation in Hong Kong, including the Star Ferry and the MTR.

Great to see this very old form of transport thrive. It is used mainly by locals but is a great experience for travellers as well. The flat fare offers incredible value and riding upstairs lets you see the life of this bustling city.

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.
