Do you still remember the 2008’s cartoon movie “Kung Fu Panda”? Do you still remember the cute, clumsy but good-hearted panda Bo? He and his five fellow brothers and sisters Tigress, Monkey, Mantis, Viper and Crane became the hottest topic of the summer of 2008. After nearly three years, Bo and his friends finally will return. This July, the Hong Kong theaters will release “Kung Fu Panda” 2 which will inevitably hit the craze of Panda and Kung fu.
In order to celebrate the release of “Kung Fu Panda” 2, MTR will be offering two sets of limited edition “MTR x Kung Fu Panda 2” tickets in two consecutive weeks. From 17 of July 2011, Bo and his brothers and sisters will take the MTR with you together.
The two sets of tickets are “Formidable Set” （released on 17 July） and “Matchless Set” （released on 24 July）. Each set has two special MTR tickets and a limited edition gift. Along the “Formidable Set” will be a limited edition “Kung Fu Panda” USB mini fan and along with the “Matchless Set” is the limited edition USB keyboard vacuum cleaner. The price of each set is HK$ 88 while the stock lasts and each person is limited to two sets per purchase. You can purchase these tickets from all the MTR stations. Remind you that the ticket will be expired on 31 of Aug. 2011 and they are not refundable.

Many Hong Kong people like collecting. From toys, stamps, bags to the ticket, as long as it’s limited, it will lead to a fad of collecting. In the past, the MTR limited tickets were sold out on the first day of sale. So if you want to buy a set of “Kung Fu Panda” 2 tickets, we, at “Next Stop Hong Kong” suggest you that do not hesitate and do not wait too long.
Insider tips: Chinese computer animator Raman Hui is the consultant for “Kung Fu Panda” series film and his another famous works are “Shrek” and he is known as “the Father of Shrek”. Because he was born in Hong Kong and also graduated from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 1984, lots of Hong Kong people are proud of him and pay more attention of his works.
