Smaller cars are absolutely recommended for visitors looking to rent a car in Hong Kong. Many of the city’s streets are quite narrow, and parking spaces are often on the smaller side, so large vehicles will often be a struggle for navigate the city. That being said, there are special parking spots for larger cars, but these are limited in number so it is better to hedge your bet and go for a smaller car like a sedan, compact, or coupe.
Hong Kong features a wide range of speed limits such as 30 km/h (19 mph) on mountain roads, 50 km/h (31 mph) on smaller streets, and 70 or 80 km/h (43 and 50 mph) on most highways. On a select few highways, speed limits go up to 100 or 110 kph (62 and 68 mph).
Petrol prices average about HK$16.2 ($2.07 USD) per liter in Hong Kong. To put this in gallon terms, that is about HK$61.32 ($7.85 USD) per gallon of gas.
Parking garages in almost all areas of Hong Kong are by far the best option for parking. On the main island there simply is almost no streetside parking available in the popular areas. Luckily, there are an ample number of parking garages that charge a variety of rates so you have plenty to choose from. In the peripheral areas of Hong Kong, streetside parking is more of an option and, when available, should be taken advantage of.
