Ever wondered how Hong Kongers move around in the city back in the day? Hop on to the Hong Kong TramOramic Tour and experience first hand how it feels to be onboard one of the city's oldest forms of transportation.
The Hong Kong's tram system has been around since 1904 and remains as one of the most popular ways to explore the city. Today, the iconic open-top double decker trams are very much part of Hong Kong culture and are major tourist attractions in themselves.
To relive and experience Hong Kong’s colorful history, the Hong Kong Tramways launched the TramOramic Tour, a unique 1-hour sightseeing experience aboard a 1920’s style tram with an open top upper deck which offers unique elevated viewpoint of the most vibrant parts of the city, including bustling streets, soaring skyscrapers and historic hotspots.
On display inside the vintage cabin lower deck are video presentations and a picture gallery comparing past and present Hong Kong as well as a heritage corner with authentic tram memorabilia.
The tour comes with an audio guide by prominent Hong Kong historians and local tram experts which is delivered via individual headphones in 8 different languages (Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Korean, Japanese, French, Spanish and Russian). There is also Wi-Fi while a tram captain and attendant in costumes complete the experience.
The fare is HK$95 per adult, HK$65 per child from 4 to 11 years old (free under 4) and HK$65 per Senior Hong Kong citizen. The package includes a commemorative TramOramic Golden Ticket, which entitles the bearer to the 1-hour TramOramic Tour as well as a 2-day pass for unlimited free access to the Tramways’ regular service. The TramOramic Tour tickets are available online via www.hktramways.com/en/tramoramic/.
