    Not really suppose to be drinking on the transport HC (trains and buses anyway)

    Sometimes I'll take a taxi for just that reason...so I can enjoy a cold one on the way home...

    The underground and above ground walkways. I love how you can get around to so many places without ever having to walk outside. I like how everything seems linked together.

    There is a very good book that was published last year depicting all the various routes etc.

    The first time we ever visited we got off the bus with less than adequate map, no sense of direction and our luggage, no end of people stopped to help us, point us in the right direction (all of which were right!) and all with a smile - one reason we have choosen to live in HK!

    I don't need a car!! (Australian who grew up in outer suburbs/ semi-rural areas and loathes driving)

    And the Civil Service here is (generally speaking) both amazingly civil to the public and efficient at providing the services they are paid to provide.

    I like the convenience of being able to use it pay for things in shops rather than being purely for travel (like London's Oyster card - which they tried rolling out to shops but it failed).

    The screams of the Koel - telling me Spring has arrived.
    The bullfrog choirs during the rainy season - hilarious sounds coming from such a tiny creature.

    Double edged sword. I'm an early-bird and it bugs me that lots of shops aren't open at 10am or even 11am...

    Cross harbour ferry services. A train system that works, is clean and is cheap to use.

    Winter.
