In the cooler months, getting around Hong Kong on the tram is a fabulous experience. Take in the sights and sounds of Hong Kong whilst the tram makes its way thorough the streets at a leisurely pace. A lovely way to experience Hong Kong.

Trams are easy to reach and very cheap. Use your maps navigation service and you will easily get to where you want. And the ride is more fun on the upper deck :)
