The tramways in Hong Kong are one of the city’s earliest forms of public transportation, their use going back more than 100 years. They’re also one of the most environmentally friendly. It’s also the only tram system in the world to operate with only double-decker trams.
You’ll find the trams running along Hong Kong Island from Shau Kei Wan to Kennedy Town on six major routes. They’re frequent and inexpensive, and you can use a Hong Kong Octopus card to pay your fare if you don’t happen to have change. Even if you don’t use the trams for transportation purposes, hop on one for an inexpensive people-watching excursion through one of the oldest parts of Hong Kong.
My 2 day pass Hongkong Hop On Hop Off City Tour was really amazing. I came to taste Hongkong with all of what it can offer to tourist in just 2 days (great views, sampan ride, peak tram ride and harbour tour). The complimentary is very informative. The tour itself is very organized, leaving you to decide and create your own tour by just hopping on and off on the big bus. Excellent.
Took the Red Route. Great way to spend a day. The tram ride to Victoria Peak and the Sampan ride were highlights. But, you need to give your buyers specifics about how to catch the bus. We had to do a lot of work just to find out where to go and how to get there. Don't just sell us a ticket.
We had an excellent experience using the Hop-On bus on our recent visit to Hong Kong in late March. It was very user-friendly, with helpful staff and excellent routes. The audio support through earphones was very helpful. The river cruise was also most enjoyable. Would recommend it to everyone...a great way to do sightseeing in a new place with full control of what you want to see and how long you want to spend at each location. We took the two-day package.
