I always thought the Changchun LRT was a cool system, it reminds me of the light rail lines in North American cities and seems unusual for Asia.

If you excluded the surviving pre-war tram lines of Japan that were modernized with LRV fleets and new stations, would this, along with the Kowloon trams, basically be the only totally new ones in Asia? I suppose Tianjin has that funny 1-rail tram thing?

It's a bit unique compared to the similarly designed subways that most Chinese cities have or are getting.

There's also a new system in the capital of Israel, which is in Asia, and a few in Asia Minor, Turkey.

Maybe I should have said Pacific/East Asia.

Pyongyang tram opened in 1991.
I didn't know it was that "recent". Interesting.

Still I think you could safely say that the Changchun LRT is one of it's kind.
