I love them. The terminus was right outside my hotel, and while they might be unsuitabe for those with little time, the tram is an excellent means of transport around the Central District and Causeway Bay. They are so slow, you can watch streetlife below...More

The best way to see the sights and experience the Hong Kong culture on Hong Kong Island, compared to taking the MTR. Taking the ride during off-peak hours will guarantee a seat at the front of the upper deck to get a good view of...More

They are an institution in Hong Kong and run parallel to the water front so they are quick a quick way of moving about Hong Kong and they go to all the main places. Also they are very cheap 2.4hong kong dollars.

They offer lower fare than the other modes of transportation. They are slower than buses, but they are ideal for visitors unfamiliar with the city. You are less likely to miss your trolley stop, plus you get to see the city as an added bonus.

Almost like a Disney Land ride. No bumps, safety is good, seats are little cramped if you're over 6' tall.
