It is very convenient to go everywhere in Hong Kong by MTR. All you need is the Octopus card which is similar to a stored-value ticket. It can be very packed during the rush hour.

Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you
will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong

their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area
makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in
time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the
