It is highly recommended that you do not hitchhike in Hong Kong - hitchhiking is almost non-existent, getting a ride is very hard and it is illegal to hitchhike anyway. There is a vast public transport system, however.

Add info pls
Instead of buying adult tickets on the MTR you could use the concessionary ones - make sure nobody watches you and you pass through to the trains without being watched by staff. But since no one would really care, just do it quickly, don't wave around with your ticket (adult ones are yellow-orange, concessionary ones are light and dark blue). Anyhow, it seems that you can't get fined because of blackriding, you would only have to pay the difference between the concessionary and the adult ticket.
 
Unfortunately this doesnt apply for buses as drivers do no what you would have to pay. Buying concessionary tickets for ferries is possible, but staff tends to watch what kind of token you use. Fares for ferries to the Outlying Islands are often paid at a counter, therefore no possibility for adjusting the amount of money you pay.

There are several beaches and parks, although camping on not-designated sites seems to be illegal. Stanley Beach in the south of Hong Kong Island does have showers and it's unlikely to be disturbed by police since the area is somewhat fancy. And if you didnt set up a tent you can still pretend to enjoy the romantic of the beach and the sea.
 
Kowloon Park in Tsim Sha Tsui is closed after midnight, but the main gate is not too much of a problem, you can crawl under it, or jump over it at its sides. Or you can wait somewhere until you are locked in.
 
There are some paths around Langkwaifok, on concrete walls (for example, go up Wing Wah Lane, turn left, take the stairs and you end up on one of those paths). They lead to hidden, let's call them courtyards, but with a bit luck you can find your own hidden welcoming part of concrete.
 
You could also try to get on rooftops, for example in Kennedytown. Tsam Shui Po should also have some buildings with accessible rooftops.

Police in Hong Kong seems to be cooperative, so if confronted they might be eager to compromise with you as well.
