The double-decker trams in Hong Kong are one of the earliest forms of public transport in Hong Kong.
It runs on Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town, with a branch circulating Happy Valley.
It is the only exclusively double-decker operated tram system in the world, and apart from very slow, the best and cheapest way to explore Hong Kong.
We took the tram from Sheung Wan to Happy Valley to the race course. The ride took us more than 30 minutes (evening rush hour) but it was very cheap, 2 HKD per person.
Typically, you get on the back of the tram, work your way through the top to front – go down and then pay when you exit. You can either pay in coins (exact change) or use your Octopus card.
It is a very nice way (and traditional way) to experience Hong Kong, as it takes you passed some famous buildings, like the HSBC and Bank of China Towers.
Very convenient, and an enjoyable ride to Hong Kong’s city centre in the evening!
