Hong Kong is well served by three different airports, each with its own benefits. While Hong Kong International is the busies of the three, the other two have certain distinct advantages that make them well worth discussing.
Taxis from Hong Kong International Airport to the city can cost up to HK$350, but you can reduce this by sharing with other travellers. If you’re headed to Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, use a red taxi. Blue taxis go to Lantau Island. Green taxis can only go to the New Territories.
This train is an efficient way to get into Hong Kong, taking just twenty-three minutes, and has baggage handlers to help you get your luggage both on and off the train. A round-trip is HK$110 to HK$180. There are free shuttle buses to many major hotels once you reach your destination.
Less costly than the train, but it does takes longer. If you want to save a lot of money, choose the E routes instead of the A routes, as they’re half-price. While you can expect to spend nearly an hour on this form of transportation, you’ll also get a stunning view of the island.
Car Rental and Driving
You can rent a car at the airport, but very few people do. It’s quite crowded here, and the traffic is difficult to navigate. Moreover, the roads are hard to navigate. Costs can run up to about HK$600 per day, and signs are printed in English and Chinese. International driving permits are accepted.
Many visitors arrive on one of the Cross Boundary coaches that move from Kowloon to the mainland each year. There are six different lines, and you can learn more about each and get helpful phone numbers on the Transport Department’s website. It is also easy to catch coaches to destinations in China's Guangdong Province from several coach desks Hong Kong International Airport. You will however need to have organised your travel documents for China before boarding the bus.
Reaching Hong Kong by rail is a fairly easy prospect. MTR has through train service on a regular basis that runs from Guangdong Province, Beijing, and Shanghai. The terminal is in Hung Hom Station for the through train and in East Tsim Sha Tsui for the domestic service. You can visit their website for a timetable. Service between Hong Kong and the mainland stops before midnight.
