Hong Kong Transportation: 930 reviews and 1,244 photos


The Trains : The MTR is a very efficient rail system with clearly marked stations and audible warnings in both Chinese and English of approaching stations. Each station has a different colour to make it easier to recognise. Each station has a bank located inside, most also have a Mr Minute (shoe repair) and usually a bakery.

The Buses : The Bus services seems to run everywhere in Hong Kong whether it be the double decker's, the aircon city shuttles or the mini-buses. Bus fares are paid upon boarding and vary according to distance and bus route. Exact change is required as drivers do not give change. On the Aircon buses, the fare is usually shown on the window.
