Exploring Hong Kong’s Tramlines With a New App

Why We Recommend it

Trips on Hong Kong’s historic tram can be complemented with this new app and map that points out intriguing places to visit along its route. Join the launch trip on June 18.


The brainchild of iDiscovery’s Ester van Steekelenburg , this is a socially-conscious app with a map that helps users explore neighbourhoods along the tramline. Steekelenburg’s projects strive to rejuvenate heritage and encourage residents and visitors to see the value of a city’s local history.

This map compliments earlier projects that include a neighbourhood tour app of Sham Shui Po and Kowloon. The route includes 46 points of interest that highlight authentic and heritage places across categories of food, drink, sightseeing and shopping.
