San Francisco: Cable Cars.
Cable car is definitely one of the most unique offering in the city of San Francisco. Guess it has to do with the fact that SF is a city full of slopes. Highs and lows are everywhere. You think small cc cars like Kancil and Kembara could survive in this city? Think again!
Most of the slopes can be extremely steep. Hence taking the cable car is a great idea.
However, if I am a local, I doubt if I will take the cable car because each trip costs USD5, regardless of the distance you travel.
Even with the high fare, cable cars are always full with travellers/visitors from all over the world.
Yes, it indeed is a must for all the visitors, even if we have to risk our lives standing like this throughout the entire ride.
No trip to SF is considered complete without trying the cable car.
With the breathtaking view while riding the cable car, who cares about the high fare?
The brake-system of the cable car is really awesome. Imagine going down a steep hill like this, and having almost 30-40 ppl in the vehicle, the cable car still has the ability to stay stable ... phew!
