My first New Zealand 2 : Chasing Trams in Christchurch

My stay in Christchurch was only two days, but trams circulating the city saved me to cut the travel time inside the city.

Tram operations aimed for tourism and Tram operator acted as a guide and explained about Christchurch as driving the carriage.

The classic looking old yet pretty carriage that used a lot of woods on it, was beautiful and was enough to make us feel extra ordinary with a hint of fantasy.

Entry / Exit of New Regent Street Precinct.  Shops, cafes, bars and restaurants were aligned on both sides and tracks for tram were laid on the street.

At Cathedral Junction.  Tracks split into two ways.  Right tracks route to heart of Christchurch.  Left tracks lead to tram shed.

Tram operator manually switches the route for either direction, using an iron stick (or magic wand..).
