Transport in Hong Kong
Hardworking people of China every day prove to the world that they, too, know how to relax and invite you to spend time at the best resorts in Hong Kong, specialized administrative area.
Its capital city, which bears the same name,It created a unique piece of paradise for passengers and drivers. Transport in Hong Kong represented in all possible forms and images, the system works as a chronometer and failures are rare. In the list you can see all the familiar and unusual local transport vehicles: the underground MTR; buses; trams; Taxi; mini-bass; funicular which lifts tourists to Victoria Peak; escalator, which works on the street.
Naturally, this is Hong Kong's subway,the speed, ease, without problems from an environmental point of view. However, this form of transport tourists are not very fond of, because the beauty of the underground, he does not shine, and the cost will be more expensive. Two good things: using the subway you can reach the airport, significantly reducing the revenue from the taxi drivers, and one of the underground lines connecting Hong Kong with mainland China.
Tram in two floors
It is such a cute vehicleply the metropolis for over a hundred years. They move, of course, not too fast, but passengers who choose this transportation, more often than not in a hurry, on the contrary, admire swimming by urban landscapes. The second part of choosing a tram just save money, because it is the cheapest mode of transport. In remote areas of Hong Kong trams cruising speed, a trip they will not bring as much excitement as on the lovely "ding".
Catch the bus!
Unlike the mainland, where busesstop at every stop in Hong Kong, they are more like a taxi. Rose tourist hand - stopped the transport, did not manage to do so, I will have to wave "bye." The payment system in buses is complex and multidimensional, the cost can be very different. Causes:
- Comfort, created in the cabin, for example, the presence of air-conditioning;
- trip distance, the cost increases when you travel to another district;
- toll tunnels and bridges, pay increases.
Minibus tourists try not to use it, as drivers tend to know only their own language, and therefore do not understand the guests and their requests to stop.
Going to take off
In Hong Kong, there is such an unusual form of transport,as the cable car, even two. One of them is moving on rails and raises the top tourist Victoria peak. It descends it very quickly, so that tourists from breathtaking speed and angle, but the beauty remains behind unattended.
Another cable car will bring guests to oneof the main attractions, the statue of Buddha, impresses with its giant size. At the cable car there is a choice of one of three cabins: the standard, having a transparent bottom or private.
