So for both local commuters and tourists visiting Hong Kong for the first time the metro is one of the quickest and best ways to get around. To help with any confusion and for the ultimate de-stress tool when getting around by public transport make sure you have this Hong Kong MTR map at the ready.

Bilingual Map

On the Hong Kong Metro map, station and line names are displayed in Chinese and English – just like they are in the metro stations themselves. For locals using the app daily to commute this adds a sense of familiarity but also makes it easier for visitors to find their way. All stations can also be searched for in both Chinese and English.
