The MTR (Mass Transit Railway) is an
extensive subway system interconnecting Hong Kong Island, as well as the Kowloon
Peninsula and Lantau Island.
An icon of
the city for decades, the Star Ferry offers a leisurely 7-minute ride across the
Victoria Harbour for just HKD 2.50 - HKD 3.40, and the locals still take it
routinely. There is one just about every five minutes, operating from early in
the morning until 11pm and covering two routes: one between Tsim Sha Tsui and
Central, and one between Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai.
The Star Ferry
terminal in Kowloon is a 15-minute walk from the hotel along the harbour
In addition, the East Rail of MTR, located at the doorstep of
the hotel, offers frequent direct train service from Kowloon to the New
Territories and the Mainland China border.
The historic double-decker tramway runs on Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei
Wan and Kennedy Town, with a branch in Happy Valley. While 240,000 residents
still commute by tram every day, this mode of transport has been in operation
since 1904 and is a popular sightseeing attraction.
