well...I would say it's around HK$250 or so. The bus is around HK$40, the train is around HK$120.

THANKS. IS IT COMFORTABLE TO RIDE IN A TRAIN?

Re: is taxi fare from airport to kowloon and vice versa expensive?

by mim95

yes! very comfortable and quick ride. I think it's about 20 min to Kowloon station, and there are free shuttle services to various hotels. Google Hong Kong MTR airport express for details.

The Airport train is comfortable, clean, and nice. It only makes a couple of stops between the airport and MTR central station on HK island.

I would say it is superior to the Narita Express train in Tokyo.

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

Stroll Around the "Peak"

by johnaalex

The view from Victoria Peak is something that I think everybody should see. The most popular form of transport to get to the top is the Peak Tram. However, I suggest that you should get a taxi to the top and then take the tram down. This way you miss the long wait for the tram at the bottom.

When you get to the top you should take the 2.8km walk around the Peak. On a clear day you an get some great views.

Hong Kong Island, the economical centre of Asia

by Pavlik_NL

On Hong Kong Island, the main attraction is the view from Victoria Peak. The Peaktram brings you to the viewingplatform and be sure you go once during the day and once at nighttime. Both times the view over HongKong island, over the bay towards Kowloon is dazzling. Along the peak are several trails that can be followed to discover new angles and views. Doing my utmost to find a way making the picture on the openingspage at night ... with a simple camera. A true miracle that it worked out - hahaha. Only afterwards I could calmly enjoy the light of the city below.

Hong Kong Tip

by Pete_Thera

Visting Hong Kong is quite convenient as it is the aviation hub of East Asia. Since it is quite easy to visit and stay, we've had chances to visit Hong Kong often recently. What really attracted us there? Good food, of course! And good things to shop for, although quite pricey. We need to be there during sales seasons. One interesting observation, we found our ability in speaking Mandarin, although rather poor, helpful for us in communicating with the people there. At the same time we found more and more people in Hong Kong cannot speak English!

Symphony of Lights

by strollingfish

Each night from 8:00~8:18pm 19 buildings in Hongkong Island will give a show of multi-media lights and sounds. During Chinese New Year they will also combine this symphony of lights with a firework display. You can have this spectacular view of Victoria Harbor in Tsim Sha Tsui. The best viewing location is at Avenue of Stars or the Ferry Pier new HK Cultural Center. Along the Avenue of Stars there'll also be a broadcast of the show.

New Territories 1965

by Nemorino

--

One morning while I was in Hong Kong in 1965 I took a tour of the New Territories, including old villages, new factories and a glimpse of the border between Hong Kong and mainland China, which at the time was routinely called "Red China" by the Americans.

On the tour they explained that the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong consisted of three parts: Hong Kong Island, which the Chinese emperor ceded to Britain "in perpetuity" after a war in 1841; Kowloon, which was ceded in 1860; and the New Territories, which were leased to Britain for ninety-nine years starting in 1898.

When I was there everybody was wondering what would happen thirty-two years later in 1997 when the lease expired.

What actually happened was that not only the New Territories but also Hong Kong Island and Kowloon were returned to China. So the former British Colony of Hong Kong is now a "Special Administrative Region" as a part of the People's Republic of China.
