Ding-Ding Tram


 Since 1904, there has been an electric tram running along Hong Kong Island. The locals call it the Ding-Ding because of the familar sound the tram make when arriving or departing. It is a fun way to explore the island. Yes the MTR Island line is MUCH faster, but not nearly as scenic. Riding upstairs in the front is a must! Love these trams!
