In a Yellow House Photo Challenge : On the Road



 

Tram

A tram. Apparently Hong Kong has the word's largest double-deck tram fleet. The tram is the cheapest way to get around Hong Kong at only HK$2 (US$0.25) per ride, regardless of distance. And if you are a senior citizen or a student, you could ding-ding* along for half the price. (*How the locals refer to the tram; also, the sound of its "horn" to warn people of its approach.)
