1. Get an Octopus card
The prepaid Octopus card is handy for paying for all types of public transport, be it MTR, buses, ferries or trams. That’s not all though – you can also use it at many shops and fast-food restaurants and even vending machines, so be sure to keep it topped up if you want to tap-and-pay your way around town. There’s even talk of the Octopus card being introduced as a payment method in taxis, which would make it even more convenient than it already is.
