Owner description: Getting around Hong Kong couldn't be easier than with MTR. As MTR lines cover all major districts, it is quick and convenient to explore the whole city. There are nine commuter rail lines with easy interchange as well as a Light Rail network and high-speed Airport Express service. In addition, cross-boundary train service is provided to cities in the Mainland of China. Enjoy your Hong Kong journeys with MTR, operated by the MTR Corporation, one of the world's leading railway operators for safety, reliability and customer service.

Short reviews are a rarity for me but not much you can say about the well organized and efficient MTR. Our first several days in Hong Kong were spent walking most places or using the Star Ferry, but as we ventured further out or found ourselves a little tired, it was super easy to hope into a subway, purchase a ticket and be on our way.
The ticket machines have an English option and announcements are in both Cantonese and English. Signage is clear with lettered exits highly visible. Lots of little shops underground to purchase drinks or food and other trinkets. We found just purchasing single tickets worked well as it gave us options to walk but you can purchase more in advance via an octopus card. The rules of lining up and entering the trains are strictly adhered to and add to the efficiency. Prices are very reasonable! Why we don't follow suit in other countries, I'll always wonder!

Cheap way to get around with 24 hours for about £5. Fast and efficient we travelled on a few lines just to get to see a bit more of HK

Cheap option than taxi. Stations are spread over entite HK. Easy to buy tickets. Online vending machines are there at each station but you need exact change- the machine doesn't dispense change nor takes higher value.

We had a very good experience using the Octopus Metro. Keep in mind that each train does get quite full because it's for commuters.
