What Are These TfL Signs Doing In Hong Kong?

Join us to chat about all things related to London transport on our new Facebook group, Londonist Roundel Ramblings — everyone welcome.

Whether you're a bewildered tourist bamboozled by the labyrinthine twists and turns of the Big Smoke, or a seasoned Londoner with a dud phone battery and a poor sense of direction, one of these has probably saved you before:

Now, TfL's Legible London wayfinding signs are hitting the streets of Hong Kong in a bid to get its residents walking. The pilot scheme launched this month with a dozen familiar yellow and navy way-finding signs that map out the pedestrian network in the Tsim Sha Tsui district.

So, next time you find yourself aimlessly wandering the streets of the Pearl of the Orient, look out for these handy  reminders of home. And, if we're doing this whole cross-cultural exchange thing, how about we take a leaf out of the MRT's book and get some decent air-con on the tube?
