When I first started working in Hong Kong in 1993 I often travelled to and from work on the peak tram – one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. This was in the days when tannoy announcements were only made in two languages – not in three as now.
Today I travelled to the Peak once more on this tram, still an exciting journey, but this time alongside the throngs of tourists which now do the journey as part of their Hong Kong itinerary . Traditions develop and change but the iconic ones always maintain their charm. This one certainly does.
