Octopus Card, Hong Kong: 64 reviews and 47 photos

If your spending any time in Hong Kong commuting on the Mass Transit Rail (MTR) get yourself an Octopus Card. (like the Oyster card of London). The Octopus Card is a rechargeble contactless card used on the MTR and other shops e.g McDonalds and KFC. There is a HKD50 deposit that is refunded when finished with. i found using the Octopus Card easy and stress free while in Hong Kong.
