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.

In particular for first timer in Hong Kong, nothing is better to ride on the tram, or ding ding as the locals called it, to explore Hong Kong Island. It is very inexpensive, less than half a US$ you can take a long ride from...More
