Tourist information

Please visit information from Hong Kong Tourism Board.

Octopus Card – Travel cash-free

An Octopus card is an essential purchase, even if you’re only here a couple of days. The add-value card allows you to travel cash-free on all major transport systems and can also be used at convenience stores and some shops. However, please note that cash is needed for most taxi services in Hong Kong.
There are two types of Octopus suitable for visitors and both can be topped up easily:

  • Tourist Octopus (Sold version) from HK$39 without any deposit and with an iconic Hong Kong design that makes it an ideal souvenir that can be reused when you come back to Hong Kong in the future.
  • On-Loan Octopus with a refundable deposit of HK$50, where a refund handling fee will be charged if you return the On-Loan Octopus less than 90 days from the date of issue.

You can also apply for the Octopus Wallet — a service that supports P2P payments, top-ups from/to Octopus Cards, online payments and e-wallet accounts through the Faster Payment System (FPS) anytime and anywhere.
