The trams of Hong Kong Island are colourful and usually rammed full of workers in the early hours. These trams take you to the heart of the city and run between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town. Opened in 1904, the trams were one of the earliest forms of transport in Hong Kong. Apparently some 240,000 residents use this mode of transport on a daily basis. Being double decker's they are very unusual and one of only three sets operating in the world today (the others being in Blackpool, England and Alexandria in Egypt).
