Transport in Hong Kong

Hardworking Chinese people every day prove to the world that they, too, know how to relax and invite you to spend time at the best resorts in Hong Kong, specialized administrative district.

Its capital city, which bears the same name, created a kind piece of paradise for passengers and drivers. Transport in Hong Kong is represented in all possible forms and images, the system works as a chronometer and failures are rare. In the list you can see all the familiar and unusual local transport vehicles: the underground MTR; buses; trams; cab; mini-bass; funicular that raises tourists Victoria Peak; escalator, who works on the street.
Leader traffic

Naturally, this MTR, speed, convenience, without any problems from the point of view of ecology. However, this form of transport tourists are not very fond of, because the beauty of the underground he does not shine, and the cost will be more expensive. Two good points: using the subway you can get to the airport, significantly reducing the revenue from taxi drivers and one of the subway lines connecting Hong Kong to mainland China.
Tram in two floors

It was so cute vehicles ply the metropolis for over a hundred years. They move, of course, not too fast, but passengers who choose this transportation, more often than not in a hurry, on the contrary, admire the swimming by the urban landscape. The second part of choosing a tram just save money, because it is the cheapest form of transport. In remote areas of Hong Kong cruising speed trams, ride on them will not bring as many impressions as on the lovely "ding".
Catch the bus!

In contrast to the mainland, where the buses stop at every stop in Hong Kong, they are more like a taxi. Tourist raised hand - stopped the vehicles did not have time to do it, will have to wave "bye." The payment system on buses complex and multidimensional, the cost can be very different. The Reasons:

Comfort, created in the cabin, for example, the presence of air conditioners;
trip distance, the cost increases when you travel to another area;
toll tunnels and bridges, pay increases.

Minibus tourists tend not to use it, as drivers tend to know only their own language, and therefore do not understand the guests and their requests to stop.
Go to take off

In Hong Kong, there is such an unusual form of transport as a funicular, even two. One of them is moving on rails and lifts to the top of the peak tourist Victoria. He goes down very quickly, so that tourists from breathtaking speed and angle, but the beauty behind left unattended.

Another cable car will bring guests to one of the main attractions, the statue of the Buddha, impresses with its gigantic size. The cable car offers a choice of three cabins: standard, having a transparent bottom or private.!

Trip to Hong Kong

Several deserted islands, which have become a haven for a handful of pirates, for 100 years, turned into a chic city-state. And a trip to Hong Kong, a city of giant skyscrapers, could be the most memorable trip of your life.
Public transport

There go double-decker buses. Ticket price depends on the distance, direction, company-carrier and level of comfort. The average price of approximately 3-5 HK $. The air-conditioned bus price will be 1.5 times more expensive. If the route connects the two areas, the price of travel may increase to 15 HK $.

The bus stop is made on demand. To the car stopped and the land you need to "vote". In order to leave the room, you must press a special button, notifying the driver signal. This should be done in advance, at the entrance to a halt. Out of the bus through the front door always.

Walk around the city and the bus, but if you do not know Cantonese, you use their services you do not get.

This is the fastest option around the city. But you overpay significantly when compared with ground transport.

The stations are very clean. People on platforms not too much. All names are duplicated in English. But if you still have trouble, you can contact service personnel (English widely spoken). Very clean and in cars, as the litter is in the subway does not allow Hong Kongers.

The price of a trip depends on several factors: the total distance, direction, day of week, time, and is 2-22 HK $. If necessary, you can purchase a one-day travel card for 50 HK $.

It is the oldest type of transport - two-storey trams run through the city for more than a century. Call them the people "ding" and they are the cheapest way to move around the city. The routes cover the whole territory of Hong Kong, passing close to the main attractions. Price fare for adults is 2,30 HK $, for children up to 12 years - 1,2 HK $, pensioners - 1,0 HK $.

In total, the two funicular in Hong Kong.

First (rail) enables up and down as needed from Victoria Peak. Open was a long time ago (1888). Total length - 1.7 km.

Cable car - second funicular - brings tourists to the huge statue of Buddha. You can choose between three cabins: standard, private and a glass-bottomed. Hours on weekdays - from ten in the morning till six in the evening. On weekends and public holidays - from nine in the morning and half past six in the evening.
Taxi in Hong Kong

Taxi drivers are myriad. Total in Hong Kong three kinds of taxis in a different color:

red cars - the most expensive "city" taxi;
green car - a bit cheaper, but have the right to travel only in the New Territories, Disneyland and airport-complex;
blue cars - the cheapest and work exclusively on the island of Lantau.!
