From the BBC a picturesque story about the city’s unique double-decker trams, a made in Hong Kong product that still faithfully serves the local streets. Photographer Irene Flanhardt has captured the images of these trams, including a few tram oldsters that are still making the rounds.
Trams have been in use in Hong Kong for over 110 years. This system is the only one globally still operating with double-decker trams only. It is also one of only five “non-heritage” trams using double-decker seating. The others are in Great Britain, Egypt, Oranjestad, Aruba and Dubai.
Take a look at the video below prepared by BBC News.
