Even before my arrival in Hong Kong, I was looking forward to taking the double decker ding-dings (I had to smile at hearing this term the first time, since I could hazard a guess how it was coined). Hong Kong Tramways is a tram system in Hong Kong running on Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town, with a Happy Valley line. It was in 1881, when trams were first proposed for Hong Kong. It was already 1904 by the time the fist bodies of tramcars built in the United Kingdom were shipped in pieces to be assembled and installed in Hong Kong. 1912 saw the first double-deck tramcar was introduced. I am told that sometime in the later decades, rotating turnstiles were introduced at the rear entrance and coin drop boxes were fitted next to the motormen.
