Hong Kong Map
You’ll need a good Hong Kong Map to find your way around, either on your smartphone or a good old-fashioned A-Z style map. The important thing is to have the roads and landmarks in dual languages, so you can point to a place on your Hong Kong map and a Cantonese speaker can read the Traditional Chinese characters. This is essential when in a taxi or asking directions.
To help you get your bearings, Hong Kong Island is the principal island with Central (Central Business District) on the North shore, with the Lan Kwai Fong/Wyndham Street entertainment districts behind.
Going further South and beginning to climb, you will find the mid-levels residential district as your start to ascent towards The Peak.
If you go through the Aberdeen tunnel under The Peak, you will come out on the ‘South-side where you will find Stanley (residential with it’s tourist market and picturesque bay) and Ocean Park.
Kowloon is the mainland peninsular with TST at it’s tip, accessed by ferry, MTR or road.
The congested ‘Cross Harbour Tunnel’ is flanked by the more expensive Western and Eastern tunnels.
Lantau Island is where you’ll find the airport, great beaches, The Big Buddha/Po Lin monastery and Disneyland.
