Is it expensive to hire a car with driver in HK?

by anonymousmoose

When I went to HK a few years ago, I hired a Mercedes S class via the hotel to pick us up and drop us off. I was wondering if its possible to hire a town-car type service in HK and if its expensive?

Even if it is too expensive to hire a car service all day, is there some discount airport pickup services just to and from the airport to hotel? Something better then a taxi but doesnt need to be a top of the line RR or Merc.

Have you considered the airport express train which takes you from the airport to either Kowloon or Hong Kong Stations, from there, there are hotel shuttle buses to your hotel.

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

ID cards/Passports

by gloopgloop

In Hong Kong ID cards are compuslory, therefore you must carry your passport or driving licence around with you at all times.

If you are having your visa for China done - get a receipt, this the only proof that you are not an illegal immigrant.

If you are going to Macau - bring your passport as there are immigration forms and checkpoints to pass through first.

Beautiful Skyline

by Sharrie

HK Island has one of the very most beautiful skyline in the world! The futuristic skyscrapers among many old establishment - strangely, everything blends well here. HK island is full of progress & vibrant energy. People are dynamic & very cosmopolitan. It feels very different from Tokyo or Shanghai for that matter. To me, Tokyo & Shanghai are more homogeneous society while Hong Kong is a melting pot of the world!

Hong Kong

by traveldave

What is now Hong Kong once consisted of barren islands with small fishing communities. However, a war between Britain and China would change Hong Kong from a neglected backwater into one of the most energetic and economically important cities in the world.

In 1773, Britain was importing more goods from China than it was exporting to China, and needed something to change the balance of trade. Therefore, Britain started shipping opium to Canton. By 1839, the drug trade was becoming a big problem for China. The balance of trade had shifted, and too many Chinese were addicted to opium. So China began to confiscate the opium, which caused Britain to blow up four Chinese junks, sparking the Opium War.

China was eventually forced to cede the island of Hong Kong "in perpetuity" to Britain. In 1898, Britain added to its colony by forcing China to lease the New Territories, which included a part of the mainland and 233 outlying islands, for 99 years. The lease was set to expire in 1997.

Until about 1949, Hong Kong remained an unimportant part of the vast British Empire. But after the Communists took over the mainland in 1949, a huge influx of refugees poured into the colony. At first, they taxed the resources of Hong Kong, and the influx was seen as a disaster. However, many of the refugees included wealthy businessmen and they set up businesses, primarily textile production. The millions of refugees provided a source of cheap, abundant labor. Hong Kong soon became the world's chief producer and exporter of textiles. Other goods, such as electronics, were also produced and exported. In addition to producing and exporting goods, Hong Kong developed into a world financial center.

In 1997, the lease on the New Territories expired, and all of Hong Kong reverted to China. It became a Special Administrative Region of China, retaining its capitalist system, judiciary, and police. Now, although part of China, it is a place apart, not quite British, not quite Chinese.

Bank of China Tower

by ZenLady34

My favorite thing about Hong Kong is the ferry ride from Kowloon side to Hong Kong island (Central).

The view of Hong Kong skyline at night was spectaculars because of the reflection of buildings, which were illuminated in different colours, glistering on the water. Right behind the skyscrapers raises up green mountains (when does a hill become a mountain?).

Anyway, the Bank of China Tower is worth mentioning because its architecture. It is 369 metres high and has 72 floors. It was designed by I.M. Pei & Partners. It can be seen from Kowloon side but do take a closer look at it as well.

If the link I provided above does not work, you may search for the building info on the Bank of China's homepage. Just do let me know if the links dont work so that I can correct them. Thanks.
