The Octopus card is brilliant– adding money to it takes a second and you pay for all transport and in most shops with it. Just hold it to the scanner and money goes on or comes off in a second. It’s like Oyster +1.
20 mins on the MTR (metro), 20 mins on the bus and you’re at a beach. Shek O: A lovely one. Great, cheap Thai food for dinner too.
