If time is of a premium, this one-day whistle stop tour will take you around Hong Kong's must see sights. Before you get underway, make your way to an MTR, subway, station and buy an Octopus - not the eight-armed variety, but an Octopus card. These handy cards allow you to swipe your way onto all of the city’s transport options. A HK$150 outlay will give you $100 credit, while the remaining $50 can be claimed back when you turn the card in – the Octopus will give you more than enough ammo to complete this one-day tour. A map is always useful but for the most part major sights are well signposted and Hong Kong has a number of strategically placed maps, even in rural areas.
