Took my son on the tram to Happy Valley from Causeway Bay (& back again). He loves riding upstairs & pretending to drive (well he is only 4!!). The Tram is very cheap way to travel with it being just a flat fee for each journey (HK$2.30 for Adults, HK$1.20 Under 11's & HK$1.10 for over 65's). We got off... More

One of the oldest public transport in HK.Take the Sau Kei Wan route from Central, and return either on the same route or by MTR. You will see both the most advanced commercial centre and the local residential area of the new and the old local culture.

It's quite slow and w/o air-conditioning so you'd better try it in a nice day. And ideally try to avoid the peak hour, as you dont want either too many people or a traffic jam. otherwise it's nice to experience the old HK public transportation in a modern HK. btw, it's good for Pokemon players....

If You are nostalgic for old way of ytransportaion try Hong Kong trams. Frequent, almost every 5 min and reasobaly priced, slow way of going around, but plenty of time for sightseeing Hong Kong. A ittle noisy.

Make sure you do a tram trip during your visit to HK. It's really cheap ($2.30 per trip at time of writing, get an Octopus card), you travel with locals and you get good views from the top deck. The tram network covers quite a large area too.

We went all the way to North Point from the Western Market in the tram. This is a great way to see the various areas along the northern side of the island, but to avoid the crowds! It's perhaps slower than other public transport but from the top layer you get great views of the streets. Well worth taking the... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
