Hong Kong Tramways
Servicing Areas: Northern parts of Hong Kong Island
Operating Hours: Around 06:00 to Midnight 00:00
In operation since 1904, the Trams service northern Hong Kong Island areas. Except Sai Wan, Happy Valley and Chai Wan, Trams and MTR routes are pretty much the same. The trams start from Kennedy Town in the west, to Shau Kei Wan in the east, passing through shopping and commercial districts like Central, Admiralty, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, North Point and Tai Koo Shing.
The slow pace of Trams is a big contrast to Hong Kong's fast paced lifestyle. The fees is cheap, only HK$2 for adults, therefore riding the trams is one of the best ways to experience the urban life of Hong Kong people.
