Hong Kong has a separate visa and immigration system to mainland China, so visitors from the U.S. (along with many other nations) can stay in Hong Kong for up to 90 days without a visa. When it comes to traveling around Hong Kong, there are lots public transportation options. The contactless Octopus Card can be pre-loaded with travel credit and used on almost all modes of public transportation; you can also get discounted fares on the Mass Transit Railway (MTR). The MTR is the quickest way to get around Hong Kong, and it serves many popular tourist areas, but you can also easily find taxis which are color-coded to indicate the areas that they serve. The coastal trams are affordable and reliable, and ferries are a great way to connect to Hong Kong’s many islands. There are also numerous bus services across all the main islands, but if you want to see the central downtown area, you can explore it on foot.
