Walking Tours Of Hong Kong – Take A Ride On The Peak Tram

If you choose to book a Hong Kong local tour with your Hong Kong tour guide, one of the popular places on your city tour Hong Kong might be a trip on the Peak Tram. This green or red funicular was opened in 1888 to serve families living at The Peak. Consisting of three different classes to travel, on its first day the tram served 600 passengers and over 150,000 in the first year.

If you think of sights to see in Hong Kong, you will definitely be amazed by the spectacular views of the city when you are on your tram ride. All heavy equipment including the rails had to be hauled uphill manually!!! Incredible that it took only 3 years to build. Did you know that between 1908 and 1949 an affixed plaque on the first two seats was telling passengers, “This seat is reserved for His Excellency, the Governor”? These seats could not be occupied until two minutes before departure time in the event the Governor might appear unannounced. Ask your personal tour guide in Hong Kong to tell you more about the tram on your next Hong Kong package tour!
