HONG KONG ~ Tram - Sheung Wan ~

... Lovely view of a public transport and tourist attraction in one... classic icons... take a step back in time... the tram was one of the earliest transport in Hong Kong... a unique way of travel on a double-deck tram and still maintain in high standard.... and the best part is that it's very affordable... known by the locals as as "ding-dings"... Thanks a lot Jobbo!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Trams became operational in Hong Kong in 1904, and the first double-deck tramcar was introduced in 1912.

The current fleet stands at 164 double-deck trams which is the world's largest fleet of double-deck trams still in service.

Western Market is a colonial building located in Sheung Wan, a historic landmark. Since it was built in 1906 to serve as the office of Victoria, which is now a market with shops and restaurants lined inside.
