Stayed 4 days 3 nights in a hot and wet HK (End Aug 2018). However, it was so convenience to tarvel around HK Island using the trams. Our hotel in Sheung Wan was only a few minutes away from the tram station. However, it was quite challenging if you travel with luggage or baby stroller.

Even in the age of metro railways, cars and buses, the trams are a great way to get between places on the south side of Victoria Harbour. Paying a $2.60 flat fare either via cash or Octopus card will get you from one stop to anywhere else on the line, making this one of the most cost-effective ways to explore central Hong Kong.

A fun experience clanking along the busy streets of Hong Kong island in these narrow vintage double decker trams. Go upstairs and wait for one of the coveted front seats to become vacant. You get free airconditioning and an uninterrupted view.

This is a fun experience. You pay 2 HK dollars and can ride from end to end. The Trolleys are all electrified and so there are no fumes or annoying noises coming from the engine. Sit up stairs, open the window and take lots of photos without having a glass window in front of your camera lens. You can transfer at various points and see a few places of the beaten track or travel to the end of a particular line and hang out a bit and then get on a returning "Ding Ding" for your trip back. The Trolleys run slow and so you get a chance to see lots of stuff and even get off at one of the many stations if you've found exactly what you were looking for - an excellent travel experence!

Trams in Hong Kong have quite a history. The charge is only HKD2.60 for any distance you travel. Octopus card or cash can be used to pay the fare. But keep exact change for cash. Very convenient to travel.
