Air conditioned. Clean. Excellent crowd control during rush hours. Reasonably priced, considering things are tend to be expensive in HK

Buying tickets is already complicated. No credit cards on the vending machine, only cash. And even that is complicated. My 100 HKD bill was too big. The MTR people told me that I needed to change it into smaller bills in the surrounding shops -...More

It was easy to ride the MTR of Hong Kong. Each station high light the attractions where you can go and will give the directions. Avoid rush hour though as there are a lot of commuters.

makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in
