Hong Kong:

Did you know that public transport is called Ding Ding in this city?
 
Amazing right?
 
Serving Hong Kong for 113 years, HK Tramways (“Tramways”) is true to its heritage while remaining young, cheerful and energetic in heart.
 
Hong Kong Tramways (HKT) is a 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) narrow-gauge tram system in Hong Kong. Owned and operated by RATP Dev Transdev Asia, the tramway runs on Hong Kong Island between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan, with a branch circulating through Happy Valley.
 
Hong Kong’s tram system is one of the earliest forms of public transport in the metropolis, having opened in 1904 under British rule. It has used electric trams since its inauguration, and has never used horse or steam power. It owns the world’s largest operational double-decker tram fleet, and is a very rare example of a tram system that uses them exclusively. In addition to being used by commuters, the system is popular with tourists, and is one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in the city.
 
Hong Kong people informally call the tramway the “Ding Ding” in reference to the double-bell ring used by the trams to warn pedestrians of their approach.
