Hong Kong Trams

Hong Kong Tram (3)

One of the cheapest but most interesting ways to see the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong street life is from the top deck of one the double decker trams that slowly travel up and down Harcourt Road. They cost a mere $2.30 (you need exact change). They’ve been a form of transport in Hong Kong for over 100 years. They may not be the fastest or most convenient but, particularly if you have children, they are a perfect way to wile away an hour or so as you pass through Central, Causeway Bay, Wan Chai traffic.

Be careful, they pass very close to each other!

    Perfect shots. I grew up in HK. I remember when the tram cost a mere 0.20c … and still had to have exact change 😉

    How long were you there for?
