You will see it quite commonly used but it's a fun to try it out too. It doesn't cost alot and mainly to get from Point A to B. Quite a local thing to do.

Affordable way to wander through Hong Kong island. Love the ride on both east and west bound routes. Beat the traffic and the tram line brings you to different sites of Hong Kong island.
