Getting around Hong Kong
“When I’m traveling in a city, I love to use public transportation,” T+L green guru Amy Farley says. “Not only is it often the most effective way to get around but it also lets you live like a local while keeping your carbon footprint light.” While in Hong Kong, take the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) around the city. The system’s website (mtr.com.hk) has a Journey Planner to help you determine your estimated travel time and what transfers you’ll need to make. Be sure to buy an Octopus card—a refillable smart pass available at MTR stations that allows you to make purchases at participating convenience stores, supermarkets, and vending machines.
