In Hong Kong a tram ride is not just a tram ride, you get a double-decker tram ride – and the locals call it the ‘ding ding’. These old lovelies have been around as a staple form of public transport in Hong Kong since 1904, and as well as being a novelty visitors find difficult to resist, they’re used by around a quarter of a million commuters each day.

There are six main routes tramming people from the island’s north coast to the centre. The best trams to ride, if you have a choice for your tram joyride, are the numbers 28 or 128, which both have open top balconies, and the 120, which is the last of the original 50’s designed trams with teak lined windows, rattan seats and painted in the original shade of ‘tram light green’.
