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.

So easy to use with the Octopus Card ... Get on at the back, and exit through the front, where you tap your Octopus Card when you get off (I am pretty sure that you can also use cash if you have the exact fare). Definately not pram friendly (but most of HK isn't pram friendly), so we carried our kids on ... And the locals have ALWAYS offered up a seat (also on the trains too) whenever they see us holding our kids ... A true testament to the hospitality and courtesy of the locals. I wish our kids had the patience to let us journey along HK island to take in the sights of the tram, but unfortunately we have only used it to get from A to B.

Yes, other cities have trams too, but when you're in Hong Kong you should definitely try riding the trams. You would experience how the trams navigate through the busy streets of Hong Kong and would definitely gave how the locals live in this city.

It only costs slightly more than HK2.3 (equivalent to around US 30 cents).

The Ding Ding is just a trolley car. As one who grew up in Brooklyn and rode trolleys as a matter of course, I don't know why this is even listed as an attraction. It doesn't pass through pretty scenery, is crowded and difficult to alight and descend from.

Serves as a reminder of how people travelled through the city in the past. The tram as such feels quite cramped after travelling in the buses that provide comfortable cushions. The trams are quite cheap compared to buses but travel slow and probably to fewer destinations. The cost is constant irrespective of how far you travel, so make the best use of it!

The trams are so easy and cheap to get around the city. Only $2.30 HK$ each time! I highly recommend getting an octopus card from central station (we got ours at the customer service desk near the airport checkin).
