Wonderful Trams : Hong Kong’s Favorite Transport

From Wikipedia: Hong Kong Tramways is a tram system in Hong Kong and one of the earliest forms of public transport in Hong Kong. Owned and operated by Veolia Transport, the tramway runs on Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town, with a branch circulating Happy Valley. Trams in Hong Kong have not only been a form of transport for over 100 years, but also a major tourist attraction and one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in Hong Kong.[1] It is the only exclusively double-decker operated tram system in the world, and one of only three non-heritage tram systems in the world that use double-deck cars.

From Me: They are slow moving, very cost effective, value for money transport medium in Hong Kong. Definitely a fun ride. They almost cover entire Hong Kong Island. It takes only 2 Hong Kong Dollars to reach from one end to other end.

They are so beautifully decorated by Advertisements, that you can not control your eagerness to capture it.

There are special trams also, that you can hire for organizing a private party.  Open Roof Trams designated for private parties, are so famous in Hong Kong. People organize their private party where they can have evening drinks while watching Hong Kong’s busy life, sky high building, vibrant night life.

There is a “Big Bus Tour” service which is also an open bus, carries tourists to cover most of the famous streets and markets. You can hop on and hop off from any point to any point and enjoy Hong Kong and the ride.

  1. They look like the old British trams but more colourful, somehow you don’t imagine double decker buses in a place like Hong Kong
