"You got to be careful if you don’t know where you’re going"...Orientation time!

“You got to be careful if you don’t know where you’re going, because you might not get there.”…..Orientation time!


“You got to be careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there." Yogi Berra


Yogi Berra, that great baseball catcher is probably equally as famous for his malapropism as he is for his catching. In this case, I’m gonna follow his lead and take a look at the general layout for Hong Kong.







From what I’ve read, Hong Kong is divided in to 3 broad areas:

Hong Kong Island.
  • Wan Chai District appears to be the main area that tourists stay in if choosing to stay at Hong Kong Island and broadly stretches from Admiralty to Causeway Bay.
  • The Central District is another prime tourist haunt. Central is the main financial center of Hong Kong. It broadly stretches the other side of the Island to Wan Chai, from Admiralty towards Victoria Harbour.
Kowloon Peninsula.
  • Kowloon City District includes the Kai Tak Airport, Ma Tau Wai and parts of Hong Hum. If you flew into Hong Kong prior to 1998, you flew into this district.
  • Yau Tsim Mong District is the main urban area in Hong Kong. It is an acronym for Yau Ma Tei, Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok. Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok are where you’d find the markets. Tsim Sha Tsui has a dazzling concentration of 5-star hotels and is where you catch the Star Ferries from. It is the major tourist hub in Hong Kong.
The New Territories and outlying islands, including Lantau Island where Disney is located.



If you can see or read the map, we’re staying near the Hong Hum station in Kowloon.

To get around Hong Kong, we’re going to get ourselves an Octopus Card.



Start-up costs will be about HK$150 per adult and HK$70 per child. When first purchasing the Octopus Card, HK$50 is included as refundable deposit, and the remaining value will be stored in the card for normal payments. Given how the MTR or KCR system spreads throughout HK, this will be our primary mode for transportation around HK. My parents and our friendly TA has advised that they have also taken taxi’s from time to time.



It is definitely a case of be flexible to 'catch' public transport. Maybe we'll end up being as good a catcher as Yogi Berra!

I am FINALLY subbing! It would appear you started this PTR while I was heading off to my trip, so I didn't notice it right away and it has taken me a bit to get caught up!

This trip looks amazing. I have to be honest, I have never been interested in travel to Asia, but my dad lived in Hong Kong for several years as a child and has traveled to many Asian countries with work and speaks Chinese (though I believe he speaks Mandarin, not positive...) Anywho, I am interested to read about your trip and see if it sparks a desire to travel to Asia in the future!

Getting lost on holiday is part of the fun. My philosophy? Always take the left fork.





Sorry for the lack of update folks....life's been one teacup ride spinning revolting revolving door at my place. Decemberitis has struck bigtime!

By my count, it was 2 PTRs and 3 TRs. I don't count the 3rd PTR because I started that before Kimmar started her Trippie with No Name....
