Photographer's Note

While travelling on the trams today, I thought I would try and take a photo that showed their age!

Most of Hong Kong's trams today belong to the 4th generation and were designed with enclosed upper-deck. They have been in use since 1930.

This photo of a pressure gauge was taken at the turn-stile entrance at the back of the tram.

The Hong Kong Tramways web site contains a museum section with some great historical photos over the past 100 years of service.

The tram is the most economical mode of transportation in Hong Kong. Regardless of distance, only HK$2.00 will be charged for each adult passenger. Senior citizens and children can enjoy a lower fare at HK$1.00.

The total travel time from Kennedy Town to Shau Kei Wan (West to East) is 80 minutes. A similar taxi ride would cost approx. HK$100 and take 20 minutes.
