Riding the tram is great as it takes you through the streets of HK. At $2.6 HKD it is a great way to move around.

This was really fun! The trams were quite busy when we were on them, so we got "up close" with the locals. It was fun, and different than anything I had ever done before. Loved hearing the "ding ding".

Nice way to see the city, from one end to the other. In the older area. Not the most comfortable, upper level has better view. Can be busy. Cheap with the transit card

It’s a great way to see some of Hong Kong. We used it a lot. We had purchased an Octopus card (like Oyster card) that we could load up and then use on these teams, star ferry, MTR and local buses. Pay on exit of...More

$2.7 per adult. You can pay by coins or octopus. It takes you from Kennedy Town to the other side of HK island (Chai Wan). You can watch the busy street views and busy people. Safe and unique. What else can you ask for?
