Star Ferry Crossing & Hong Kong Tram Line
In Hong Kong, one of life's simple pleasures is taking a ride on the Star Ferry from Kowloon across Victoria Harbour to Hong Kong Island and back. For those of you who aren't looking for a luxury cruise, the ferries of Hong Kong are the way to go. Just get on board and relax as you sail away…
The decks of the ferries offer striking views no matter the weather. Romantics will not want to miss this ride, particularly at twilight time, when it is especially enchanting with Hong Kong's cornucopia of neon lights aglow all around you. Another historical and economical way to get around Hong Kong – overland, this time – opened in 1904: the 13-kilometre-long Hong Kong Tram Line, which traverses Hong Kong Island from east to west on the north side.
Double-decker trams were introduced in 1912. Besides Hong Kong, Blackpool, England is the only other city in the world currently using a fleet of double-decker trams.
