These double decker buses come in all colours and really light up the streets. Unlike other countries Honk kong wants the traffic moving and makes it harder for pedestrians to cross roads. The vehicle seems to have the right away and you better keep your...More

The best way to experience "old" Hong Kong (Central, Western, Wanchai). Great street views (especially from the upper deck). Definitely a must on everyone's trip list.

Take a trip on one of the old trams along Queens Road. You will need your coins as it only costs a couple of pence to ride along on these historic old trams.

If you're wanting to ride in style then this isn't it. But, if you want a taste of real Hong Kong then you have to take the Ding Ding. There are only hard wooden benches along each side with a narrow walkway down the middle....More

I just love the trams rumbling along at a slow pace they give you time to take in the sights and decide where and when to jump off.
