Transportation in Hong Kong

Planes, trains and automobiles…what’s the best way to get around?

Traffic in bustling Hong Kong can get a little chaotic!

In Hong Kong, on a day-to-day basis bus, subway, and taxi are your best transportation options. Buses and subway trains are best in terms of affordability! But very late at night you’ll probably have to take a taxi. Ferries are another popular mode of transportation between Hong Kong and its surrounding areas!


**Pick-pockets: While traveling in Hong Kong can be a breeze, it is always important to be aware of your surroundings. Pick-pocketing is a major occurrence, especially in larger cities. Make sure that your bag is zipped up and carried in front of you and that your wallet is tucked away safely. It is also a good idea to keep copies of your passport and essential documents in your dorm or hotel room, just in case. Keep an eye out for yourself and your friends on crowded metro trains and don’t be afraid to make a lot of noise if you see something out of place. Pick-pockets scare easily!
