Hong Kong, Metro Manila, Philippines

That Double-Decker Bus

When I was planning our Hong Kong itinerary, I excitedly included an item in our to-do list: ride a double-decker bus.

Back in the 80’s, double-decker buses plied the roads of Manila, Philippines. I did not have the chance to ride any of these buses. I searched over the net and found some pictures:

So when we were in Hong Kong, I gladly sat on the upper level of a double-decker bus. Nothing spectacular; I just had a good view of the Lantau Bridge and the rest of the city. It was fun!

Why Manila stopped having these double-decker buses still puzzles me. Oh well, Manila has tons of work to do.
