Trams in Hong Kong

In more than a century, the tram is the only means of transport in Hong Kong. It was also called “Ding Ding” by the locals because of the unique sound it makes. Trams move slowly in downtown so if you want to enjoy the view of the city then they are your best choice.

If you want to get the best views, you need to six next to the window on the upper deck. The tram passes some of the most beautiful spots in the city such as Cause Bay, Wan Chai and Western District.

There are mainly six routes between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan from 06:00 to 24:00 daily. The 6 main routes are: Shau Kei Wan to Western Market; Shau Kei Wan to Happy Valley; North Point to Shek Tong Tsui; Causeway Bay to Shek Tong Tsui; Happy Valley to Kennedy Town as well as Shau Kei Wan to Kennedy Town.
