ABOUT THE DESIGN OF STARBUCKS HONG KONG ICON MUG
Starbucks Hong Kong Icon Mugs Front Design features The Peak Tramway.
The Tram is a funicular railway in Hong Kong which carries both tourists and residents to the upper levels of Hong Kong Island.
It runs from Central district to Victoria Peak via the Mid-Levels and it provides the most direct route and offers good views over the harbor and skyscrapers of Hong Kong. The Peak Tram is owned and operated by the Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels Group, the owner of Hong Kong’s famous Peninsula Hotel along with many other properties.
The Peak Tram’s route from Central district to Victoria Peak covers a distance of about 1.4 kilometers and a height difference of just under 400 meters.
The line has two pronounced curves, one to the left immediately after leaving the lower terminus, and the other to the right in the upper half of the ascent.
Hong Kong is one of two Special Administrative Regions of the People’s Republic of China.
Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.
Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the First Opium War. Originally confined to Hong Kong Island, the colony’s boundaries were extended in stages to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 and then the New Territories in 1898. It was occupied by Japan during the Pacific War, after which the British resumed control until 1997, when China resumed sovereignty. The region espoused minimum government intervention under the ethos of positive non-interventionism during the colonial era. The time period greatly influenced the current culture of Hong Kong, often described as “East meets West”, and the educational system, which used to loosely follow the system in England until reforms implemented in 2009.
