The MTR Corporation will launch a Limited Edition Commemorative Ticket Set for the “Year of the Snake” starting from January 20th, 2013.
The Limited Edition “Year of the Snake” MTR Ticket Set is beautiful designed and features the design and artwork of two famous painters and modern illustrators. The life-like snake on the first commemorative ticket is painted by Zhao Shao’ang – an artist specializing in Lingnan painting – while the second design features a cute modern designed snake by Canadian illustrator Steve Mack. The MTR Corporation did an excellent job by choosing these two total different designs bringing together the past and present as well as differences between Chinese and Western culture.
The “Year of the Snake” Ticket Set will be priced at HK$ 65 and include two souvenir tickets, a ticket holder and 20 red packets. Each ticket is valid for unlimited rides on the MTR on the first day of the “Year of the Snake” on February 10, 2013 (except Airport Express, East Rail Line First Class, journeys to and from Lo Wu, Lok Ma Chau and Racecourse stations).
The Ticket Sets will be available at all MTR Customer Service Centres and Light Rail Customer Service Centers (except Airport Express, Lo Wu, Lok Ma Chau and Racecourse stations). Please note that each person is limited to two sets per purchase while supply last. In case you would like to get one of these Limited Edition Commemorative Ticket Sets for the “Year of the Snake”, we highly recommend acting fast since these sets probably will sell out with seconds once they hit the shelves.
