Getting around Hong Kong

The easiest method of getting around is by using the (MTR) subway system which operates like any other subway system in the world, there are plenty of stations right across the city as most Hong Kong residents donít own a car. A good idea would be to have a good map as many of the subway station names all sound the same but if you are only traveling around the major areas you should not have a problem.

Buses are favored by the locals and as such finding which one is the is the one you want can be a hard task, also many of the bus drivers may not speak English. Taxis are rather simple way to get around as they are divided into 3 colours. A red taxi is the most popular as this is the taxi to use around Hong Kong island and Kowloon, Green taxis only operate in the New Territories and blue taxis are only for Lantau Island. A taxi from the airport will cost you around $300HK in comparison a trip on the Airport Express Subway will cost $100HK per person to your nearest station, if you are traveling in a group a taxi may be the best option in getting to the airport.

Two other popular tourist forms of transport include catching a ferry across the harbour or hopping on a historic double decker tram that runs down one of the main CBD of Hong Kong Island. There is even a tram to take visitors up the steep hill of Victoria Peak.
