The efficiency of Hong Kong’s transportation system is OTHER WORLDLY

(Other than facial recognition, mobile payment and remote security scan, I’m not convinced next gen tech will save us any more time)

Mind you the downtown ferry terminal has been here nearly since the founding of the colony. The place is well worn in. Old school. But they know how to corral masses of humanity in a way that is so fast and pleasant it makes travel a dream…and it is unrivaled almost everywhere on this earth.
