During a late, wild night in Hong Kong you find yourself embroiled in a hardy debate about Hong Kong politics. Your debating adversary is trying to convince you that Hong Kong's head of state is King Kong.

A quick phone call to your cousin the movie buff will solve this.
For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Hong Kong or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Hong Kong SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.
The prepaid SIM card for Hong Kong along with a world cell phone is the best way to stay in touch while traveling through Hong Kong. All incoming calls while in Hong Kong are HK $1 / US $0.13, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use your cellular phone in Hong Kong like you do at home. And unlike home, your Hong Kong SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.
