Hong Kong’s Tram No. 68 — touted as the world’s only 1920s-style tram currently in service — will start running again on September 1. The tram services, known as the TramOramic Tour, were suspended in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tickets for the tram are priced at HK$150 per adult and HK$95 per child aged over four years old. Each ticket covers one trip between Causeway Bay and Western Market, as well as a complimentary two-day pass on the HK Tramways regular routes.

The open-top tram will take passengers on sightseeing trips through the neighbourhoods of Central, Admiralty, Wan Chai, and Happy Valley. There will be three departures from the Causeway Bay Terminus and another three from the Western Market Terminus.

Each tour will be available in eight languages: Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Korean, Japanese, French, Spanish, and Russian. Each trip will be roughly one hour long.
