I find them handy to jump on and off when I am too lazy to walk. Go in the back door and pay 2.6 HKD in coins into the machine at the front door when exiting or tap your octopus card.

These things cost about 2 Hkd and are 2 level so you get to watch everything from a little better perspective. Just sit relax and enjoy the view. It's that easy.

At peak times, don't even think about getting on the MTR to go just from WanChai to Central or further to Sai Ying Pun, take the Tram! In the Summertime you get even a light breeze to cool you down.

The longest tramway route cover the whole urban area of the Hong Kong Island, so it is convenient to go every major region of the HK Island side. For only $2.6, you can travel from the west end to the east end (or vice versa)...More
