There is something absolutely nerve racking about being inside a cable car in the elements with only the floor between you and the depths below. It is quite eerie sitting there in the deathly quiet except for the clanking of the machinery.

Riding in a cable car is definitely the best way to see the world below.


  1. Well done Ali! You are much braver than I am riding in those cable cars! I have a hard time imagining that the machinery is kept is perfect working order LOL. Even when skiing I struggle to feel safe going up. That said, I have to agree there is no better way to see the landscape below than in the cars and when we travel I overcome my fears – mostly! I wouldn’t have thought of the Lego description of HK but it’s perfect. Terrific response to the challenge.

  2. I love riding in cable cars although I agree it can be a little unnerving 🙂 I enjoyed seeing your photos of Hong Kong and Da Nang – I would like to have ridden the cable car in the latter but we had too little time in that area to see anything beyond Hoi An. Another time perhaps …
