Hong Kong Tram at Western Market
Hong Kong still has some amazing old buildings such as the Western Market in Shueng Wan that have new uses
Western Market Info
Western Market, renovated in 1991 and converted into a shopping complex, is an Edwardian-style building featuring shops selling arts and crafts, and fabric merchants who were originally located in the old alleys of Central. Completed in 1906, the impressive building has a red brick exterior with a handsome granite arch over its entrance and attractive ‘bandaged’ brickwork. The building is actually a north block extension of a larger market complex that was in operation from the 19th century. It was built on a site formerly occupied by the Harbour Office, which moved to a larger building in Central to cope with its growing workload. It’s one of the colonial historical sites in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Tram – Ding Ding Info
Hong Kong Trams (香港電車)also known locally as the “ding ding” in Hong Kong have not only been a form of commuter transport since 1904 and a ride into history. it’s not only one of the most affordable ways to get around HK$2.30. It’s a great way of travelling with locals who are in no hurry to go from point A to point B. They are one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in Hong Kong. It’s the only tram system in the world operated exclusively with double-decker trams, and is one of only three non-heritage tram systems in the world that use double-deck cars. The track length is 13km in length. The track is often shared with delivery bikes running about with lunch and other small shipments.
As they run through the urban area of Hong Kong Island only, the tram tracks has become an important icon of urban Hong Kong. Since the tracks were originally built along the waterfront before further land reclamation pushed the coastline northwards, the tracks can be used to identify directions and locations throughout urban Hong Kong Island.
