我平日搭乘的交通工具 香港有很多各式各樣的交通工具。他們每天都會為上學的學生和工作的人們服務。 我最喜歡坐海邊的小木船上到達比較近的地方。坐在船時,你會感到非常涼快。一個小木船通常可以載八個人以下。香港的海也十分美麗,而且你可以一邊坐著,一邊看遠處的藍水和綠山。我只乘過五次船,但是我還是記得周圍美妙風景。 我最常 乘坐的交通工具是巴士和出租車。出租車可以載四個人左右,而且它還非常舒服。巴士比出租車大很多,而且最多可以載一百五十個乘客!雖然巴士沒有出租車舒服,但是我自己覺得它非常環保。一部巴士消耗的汽油何小車的汽油差不多,但是它卻可以載那麼多人。我自己也認為八十的費用更便宜和方便。 香港的交通工具都幫到了人民很多。要是沒有了它們 ,我們進進出出就會很不方便。
