Bit more of a novelty than an asset. The tram service much easier and quicker but a bit of fun with some good sightseeing.

The tram (ding ding) will bring you on a slow journey on Hong Kong island. Good to sit at upper deck and see Hong Kong island slowly. definitely not a good idea if you are rushing for time. cos it is a slow transport.

If you are not in a hurry and want to see Hong Kong on the ground, Ding Ding tram is a good option. Its run between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan and cost only HKD 2.60 per trip.

Hop on a tram, to get a slow motion view of the busy market places. The octopus card works here as well. Unlike the buses the card has to be swiped upon exist. Take the upper deck front row seats and enjoy!

These trams are still running to full capacity along the north side of Hong Kong Island. They get very full, and because they are small you could miss your stop! However, they are a monument to a bygone age.

Along with the Star Ferry these are another piece of public transport history. A upstairs seat on a ding ding is a great way to see the lights of the city. Cheap too- but you need some change.
