When I Ride The Tram, How Do I Know Which District I Am At? Where Do I Alight?

For 1st timers, the catch is, you don’t! Riding the tram will be a mix of adventure and finding clues. If you see the famous skyscrapers, then that’s Central. If you see the big Sogo and a lot of shops/people, that’s Causeway Bay. North Point is mostly a residential area.

Nonetheless, it’s still fun to ride the tram and if ever you get lost, just ask around for the nearest MTR exit.
