    One of Hong Kong's official languages is English. English is spoken in most places that tourists go to. I go to Hong Kong every year for Chinese New Year and I've never had any problems with my inability to speak Cantonese. I've always been able to function quite well with either English or Mandarin. Signs are bilingual, the public transportation system is bilingual and maps are bilingual. You'll be fine.

    Not much, just usually Cantonese. However, if you speak English some people will understand. Good luck and I hope you don't get lost. Bring an English to Cantonese dictionary just in case.
