If you have been to Hong Kong before, you have probably been on the tram before. If you haven’t, you should do it during your next stay. But there are so many stops and routes – which one is the best one? I would say, take the one to North Point. Read on, follow me on this tram tour to North Point.
The tram is probably the most popular means of transportation amongst local residents. It is not too fast (or pretty slow as a matter of fact), but it is the cheapest public transportation (HK$2.6, or like 30 US cents). More importantly, you can enjoy a nice cityscape of Hong Kong!
Approaching North Point
What makes the tram tour to North Point so spectacular is the narrow street just before entering the terminus.
The street is known as Chun Yeung Street (春秧街). It is the beloved wet market of many of the local residents living in North Point, or nearby neighbourhoods.
Only trams that go to “North Point” will enter Chun Yeung Street, so make sure you know where the tram terminates before you board. Also, since only eastbound trams will terminate at North Point, so you may wish to take the tram from somewhere like Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, Admiralty or Central.
North Point MTR Station is just round the corner. After visiting Chun Yeung Street, you have the flexibility to take the tram back to where you boarded, or take the MTR to go basically anywhere in Hong Kong! North Point is indeed the middle of everywhere – a very convenient spot.
