Transport and Driving in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a very compact city with an excellent public transport system, so driving is more of a vanity than a necessity. Moreover, Hong Kong is densely populated, so parking is very expensive and the traffic jams can be frustrating.
Even expats who live off-island do not need to invest in a private vehicle. Kowloon is almost as compact as Hong Kong Island, and certainly very densely populated as well, making its terrific public transport network more convenient than a car.
