Your First Time in Hong Kong



Description:

Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok and Central are the major neighbourhoods that most tourists must visit. Hong Kong's public transport is truly world class in the sense that you can expect major traffic only if there was a serious accident. There is no need to rent a car because every inch of Hong Kong is covered by the subway (MTR) and by buses. There really isn't much of a City centre considering that Hong Kong is in itself also the city. Public transport is definately the best way to see the city but expect crowds to be the norm when walking through Mong Kok and Central.
