Exploring Hongkong


My first time flying far from Indonesia was to Hongkong. I joined the ACCP  2012 (Asean Conference on Clinical Pharmacy). I went there with one friend from pharmacy, and also with my husband, who wouldn’t let me go without his supervision because I was in my 3 month pregnancy.

Yes, I went to HK not only for attending the conference, displaying my poster, and presenting it; but also for exploring the city :P. There are many new things I learned there. At first I wanna share my experiences by words, but it may takes much time. So I just share couples photos here.

Hongkong

We almost had to take a walk to be arrived in destination. The road is narrow and crowded with people, everybody take a walk! There are many public transportation: big bus (behind us) -try to sit on the upstair, it’s cool-, minibus, MRT, tram, ferry, taxi, etc.

hongkong MTR

Hongkong MTR (Mass Transit Railway), it’s really mass, rapid, and fast! I like this transportation. (later I will post MTR map). Anyway, I did not look like I was pregnant in that photo, the fact is I was in my 3 month pregnancy 😛

Anyway, you don’t have to worry to use all public transportation in Hongkong. There’s a simple way to pay MTR, bus, and ferry. Just for one click then it’s done. We use an Octopus Card. The shape’s card is like an ATM card. You can refill the amount of the card. And the card is available in public spot everywhere in Hongkong: 7eleven, Wellcome, Park,  Customer Service Centre, also machine add value at MTR station. (I hope Indonesia will create card like this someday, aamiin).
