Tram Advertising 2014 - Des Voeux Road, Hong Kong.

The tram system is one of the earliest forms of public transport in Hong Kong as they have been in existence for over one hundred years. The tramway runs on Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town, with a branch line circulating Happy Valley. The trams which are an environmentally friendly mass transit system are not surprisingly a major tourist attraction. 

No surprise then that previous posts on this blog about the Hong Kong Tramways are amongst some of the most visited. Therefore whilst I was in Hong Kong recently it seemed a good idea to take a walk down to Des Voeux Road and see which companies the trams are advertising this year.

There are many more but I hope you have enjoyed the small selection I captured on my walk
