There is a bus service called Airport Express that goes into the city centre or straight to your hotel. You should purchase a ticket inside the airport at the Airport Express ticket counter. The cost differs depending on where you are planning to get off. On the return trip you can purchase your ticket on the bus but make sure you have the correct change as the driver doesn't have any.
HK Island has an extraordinary number of buses running round the island. So many it can actually be confusing as they are run by different companies. Prices to and from specific destinations vary, but the only common theme - no change is given. So if you've found your cheapest option, make sure that you have the right money! (Prices are emblazened on the front and/or sides of most of the buses or on the timetables at the bus stops themselves).

I stayed at Ibis North Point last week. I used the A11 bus. The bus terminal is right outside the hotel. It costs HK$40. Get an Octopus Card inside the Airport terminal and use it for the bus, MTR etc. I also used the A11 to return to the airport. It departs every 20 minutes.
You actually have to experience to believe the excellent bus service in Hongkong. After landing at the airport first thing I did was to buy an octopus card from the small kiosk & then proceeded to the bus stop for A21 cityflyer which was just 5 minutes walk & was well connected to the airport itself. The schedule for the bus including its timings are mentioned on all the bus stops & believe me the bus comes on exact time written at its bus stop. On the arrival of the bus the driver opens the gate, touch your octopus card on the meter, board your luggage comfortably as there is ample of space to keep your luggage & be near your luggage for your own safety. With in 45 minutes bus dropped me at Middle Road, Nathan road & again it was just 5 minutes walk from my hotel YMCA. This was my experience for day one but day two was little more than what I could have expected.
Early in the morning we took the subway from YMCA & proceeded to Central by Star Ferry which was beautiful. At Central we again took bus no 629 to go to Ocean Park & dropped us there in 20 minutes. This 629 was the second bus of that day which has started from its origin. The moment we got down out of the bus my son shouted " papa our bag", oh! no we forgot our bag in that bus. Then what we went in the office of Ocean park & narrated our story, he immediately took the action & told us that first bus of that day has reached its desitnation & has been checked with no bag & I knew it was correct as we boarded the second bus of that day. He told us to go inside ocean park & enjoy & call after 15minutes. We went inside & called him after 10minutes only due to anxiety & unbelievingly he had the bag in his hands. All four of us were thrilled & thanked them for their excellent well connected organised system of buses.
I travelled to Victoria peak by bus no 15, it was scary & thrilling too, narrow roads up the hill & traffic both sides & you wondering that even the tallest building is left behind & you are over n above all the buildings & hassle bassle of the place.
Also I went to Stanley Market by bus no 6X which was again an experience like peak & enjoyed at the beaches there, although bus no 260 (express bus) also goes to these places for your information. Hope it helps people as their tips helped me in making my trip wonderful & rememberable.
The link below shows a coach service that runs every hour (every 30mins in the afternoon) from HKIA to Shenzhen (close to the train station). It will take just over an hour and cost HK$150.
The Terminus for the E34 bus is less than 200m from the Harbour Plaza Resort City Hotel.
To get on the main KCR West Rail you will have to take an LRT (light rail) train 3 or 4 stops to get to the Tin Shui Wai station.
This will then link you to the main MTR lines.
The Hotel also has shuttle buses to TST costing only HK$20.
To go around Hong Kong you can ride Bus. From Airport, there is a bus terminal when you get out from the airport that goes to different part of Hong Kong. There is an information board where you will know what bus to take.
going to victoria peak, you can take taxi or bus. By bus, take shuttle bus No. 15C or Minibus No. 1. Honestly, I enjoyed the thrill ride of the bus than the tram. But you can go for it for added experience.
The following link gives transport options...
From TST your best bet seems to be the 8P bus that leaves from close to the Star Ferry.
A taxi would cost around HK$25 to 30 so if there are a few of you travelling the price difference would be minimal.
You could always walk. The distance is about 2.5km as the crow flies and you may see something interesting on the way.
Enjoy your stay.
