How to read Hong Kong MTR map (train map)

I hope this could help those who have plans on going on a Do-It-Yourself trip in Hong Kong. This is one thing we’ve learned from Jimmy.

MTR (Mass Transit Railway) is one important means of transportation in Hong Kong. If you don’t want to get lost, then better learn to read their train map.

Here’s how:

First, you need to locate yourself on the map. For example, you are in Po Lam.

Next is to locate your destination. For example, Tsim Sha Tsui


Then check the colors of the paths/lines from your location to your destination. If they are both the same, then you can relax. You can just sit there and wait until you reach your destination.

Now, what if the paths’/lines’ colors are not the same? That would mean you’ll have to look for an interchange (that’s where 2 lines of different colors meet). When you reach an interchange, you step out of the train and transfer to another train on the opposite side.


From Po lam, you will stop at Quarry Bay and transfer to another train. Then from Quarry Bay you will stop at Admiralty and transfer to another train which will then take you to your destination, Tsim Sha Tsui.
