This is one of the best class in mass transit. Clean, cheap, fast and well maintained. Lots of Englighs signs, all well marked. Just at times lots of walking involved, so wear comfy shoors

The MTR is amazing and accessible, no language problem, ample signage, free wifi. The oyster card works everywhere but when returned they deduct 9 HKD from the security deposit which they say is refundable.

I hadn’t been back to Hong Kong in 20 years and being on the MTR reminded me how magnificent a public transportation system can be. I love how efficient, clean and airy it is.

We were there for 3 days. Got a tourist pass that included 3 days travel and trip on express out to airport for $250HK. We used the MTR a lot. $50 refund for ticket once at airport.

very easy to use. Has octopus card system so you buy a card for $150 and $100 of that is credit. The other $50 can be reclaimed if you don't want to keep the card when you leave. Can use on everything so great.

When we purchased ours we were told we had to pay cash. We wanted to pay on card but were unable to.
