Hong Kong on Google Maps.
The charm of Hong Kong, a modern and chaotic city, is best discovered when using trams. Some are historical, others are modern, but they are the trams that have contributed to the urban development of the city of Hong Kong. Even today, despite the proposals to close the tramways and use the subways, Hong Kong citizens prefer to use the slow and noisy surface trams. The trams allow you to observe the urban architecture, the crowded markets that crowd the streets and reach tourist spots such as the gulf of Aberdeen or the hill where you can see the view of the strait that separates Hong Kong from the city of Kowloon. A trip for slow and thoughtful tourists.
