A reminder of HK visit

- HK tourist visit requires no visa!

- Once arrived at the HK airport, buy an Octopus pre-paid card (HKD 150, including HKD 50 deposit which can be reclaimed later at the airport on the day of Departure).
- With the card, take Airport Bus A21 straight from HK airport to Nathan Street. Get off at the sixth or seventh stop around Mong Kok area. Plenty of flat hotels there, available with online booking before arrival.
- Get around in HK, with typical routes being Chinese temples, street markets and shopping areas, everywhere accessible by MTR.
- On the day of departure, take the same bus A21 from the other side of Nathan street.
