Two weeks tomrrow before I'm ready to take on China and Hong Kong.

Reading what is on here is very useful but at the same time I still dont really know what to expect.

ps - I'm staying Kowloon, Nathan Road to be precise, how is the transport into Hong Kong Island?

Hi Blairhoyle

I wouldnt worry about travelling around Hong Kong as it was one of the easiest and most realiable systems I have ever used.

One of the first things I would advise is to look out for the free tourist maps that they have at the airport whilst you collect your luggage, I found it very helpful in finding my way around.

Next i would recommend you get an Octopus card its used on buses, the ferry and the MTR. You place credit on it and its scanned as you use it. You can get one of these from most of the station kiosks. And I have to say its one of the most useful items that I brought whilst over there.

To get from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island you can catch the star ferry which runs quite often or the MTR which runs about every 2 - 3 mins.

Its an experience that I cant wait to have again and I am sure you will love it.
