Getting around the Country

Rail


There are selections of train lines, which service different parts of the city. The Mass Transit Railway (MTR) is excellent for travel around Hong Kong and Kowloon. The KCR and LTR are useful for accessing the Northern suburbs, normally referred to as the New Territories. The rechargeable Octopus travel pass is an excellent purchase. It is accepted on most forms of transport, and saves you the trouble of finding exact change. It’s available at Public Transport Customer Service Centers.

If you are wanting to go from Hong Kong to Shenzhen by train board the KCR train at Hung Hom (1st / 2nd class HK$66 / 33), but prices are subject to change.

Bus


Buses operate throughout Hong Kong and they are very cheap. Another form of transport is the double-decker trams run on the north side of Hong Kong Island. They're not as fast as other modes of transport, but they're an atmospheric way to experience the city. The rechargeable Octopus travel pass is an excellent purchase. It is accepted on most forms of transport, and saves you the trouble of finding exact change. It’s available at Public Transport Customer Service Centers.

Air


The National Airline of Hong Kong is Cathay Pacific, which has an extensive network in the region and throughout the world. The low-cost airline, Oasis Hong Kong has cheap flights to London and to Vancouver, with routes to Australia opening soon. For more information go to www.oasishongkong.com


Sea


Ferries are also an integral part of the city's transport system. The Star Ferry, launched in 1888, is worthy of particular mention. It operates out of the Southern tip of Kowloon and the views it offers of the city take some beating. There are also ferries that take you out to the islands and to Macau, which is excellent for a day trip.
