Hong Kong II

Peak Tram trundles past a view of the Hong Kong skyline on its ascent to Victoria Peak. It was opened in 1888 and was the first such funicular railway in Asia and greatly accelerated the development of Hong Kong Island away from the crowded lower levels close to the harbour.

Two stamps from a 2006 set of Hong Kong birds featuring a common kingfisher and a little egret.
