Hong Kong’s MTR is a fast and easy way to get to almost any places in Hong Kong. In fact, it’s one of the most advanced metro systems in the world.

Hong Kong’s sophisticated MTR system operates 9 subway lines throughout the entire city.

Traveling by metro may not be as cheap as bus travel, but it’s definitely faster and more comfortable than buses.

MTR hours: 06:00 – 01:00 daily (vary from line to line)

MTR schedule: Every 3 minutes (may be up to 20 minutes in the early morning and late night)

MTR fares: Range from HK$4.5 ($0.58) to HK$59.5 ($7.67) for a single journey, depending on the count of stops and the MTR line
