Hong Kong Transportation

  • Mass Transit Railway MTR

    Hong Kong Transportation

    I think Hong Kong has one of the most efficient and nicest metro system in Asia, compatible with the Singapore metro system, MRT. It links to most of the attractions and suburban towns of HK. You will not miss the MTR if you travel independently, it gets you the freedom to explore the city with convenient. I would highlight some of the important...

  • To/From Macao

    Hong Kong Transportation

    Ferry´s leave from China Ferry Terminal, Tsimshatsui and Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal, Sheung Wan very frequent, i don´t think bookings are necessary (might be more complicated finding the booked boat/seat). There are taxi´s and city buses at the Macau terminal. Walking is possible to the casino area and even to the old town center. You can use...

  • Star Ferry

    Hong Kong Transportation

    One of the best ways to see Victoria Harbor or Hong Kong is riding a star ferry to cross between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. It gets you the magnificent views of both sides of the harbor. I never miss a star ferry in any of my trip to Hong Kong. It is 3 to 4 times cheaper by riding a star ferry than taking an MTR train to cross the harbor. And...

  • Bus Services

    Hong Kong Transportation

    As a rule I travel on the MTR to mostly everywhere I want to go in Hong Kong, but buses, particularly on routes up to the Peak, along Nathan Road or out to Stanley are a good alternative. The best thing about travelling by bus is that you get to look at the streetscape on the trip. This is best seen from the front seats on the upper level but...

  • Octopus Card

    Hong Kong Transportation

    Last June 2012, I went to Hongkong with my friend Eileen. I was surprised to have this Octopus Card-which as a first timer in Hongkong gave me a lot of convenience. This card allows you to travel around Hongkong using MTR, tram and buses. Never experienced something as convenience as this before-so I was so glad that Hongkong had me my first...

  • Airport Express

    Hong Kong Transportation

    As everyone knows Hongkong airport is one of the best airports in Asia. Airport express train is a most convinient way to travel between an airport and a city. The Airport Express Shuttle-bus is a complimentary add-on service provided exclusively for Airport Express passengers travelling between Hong Kong or Kowloon station and major hotels and...

  • Taxis

    Hong Kong Transportation

    I personally prefer the MTR as the best and most cost effective way to dash around Hong Kong but taxis are an alternative. There are thousands of them on Hong Kong Streets, day and night. Taxis can be hailed on the street or from a taxi stand and I do try this method occasionally though I must admit that I have never had much success explaining to...

  • Peak Tram

    Hong Kong Transportation

    If you can support the long line to get a ticket, the experience of climbing to the peak is short and nice. The hill is rather steep, and though securely seated, you feel like bouncing backwards as you go up. Will it be for that reason that they put everybody facing the hill, neglecting the eventual good sights in the way up and down?

  • Doubledecker Tram

    Hong Kong Transportation

    Riding an electric tram is one of my favorite things to do in Hong Kong Island. It is not only a budget way to travel around Hong Kong Island on the main road between East and West, but it is a great way to see the real Hong Kong from a traditional neighborhood to modern high rise skyscrapers. It has been operated since 1904. It is well kept and it...

  • Chek Lap Kok Airport

    Hong Kong Transportation

    If you mode of travel into Hong Kong is by flight you will most definitely be flying into the fabulous Chek Lap Kok Airport, or also known as Hong Kong International Airport. As the worlds 11 Busiest Airport, this to me is a destination is its own right. I am a fan or airports anyway, so this is a great place to arrive at. Staff are very friendly...

  • Midlevel Escalator

    Hong Kong Transportation

    The Mid-Levels escalators run between Des Voeux Road in Central with Conduit Road in the district known as the Mid-levels and are the longest series of outdoor covered escalators in the world, running for 800 meters. It was opened in October 1994 in order to cut down excessive traffic that was building up due to the steepness and narrow streets in...

  • From China to Hongkong

    Hong Kong Transportation

    If you are planning to visit Shenzhen from Hong Kong, you need a visa to enter the China. You can either have your visa ready in your home country before travelling to HK or you can have your visa done in HK. I have visited China Travel Service at Tsim Sha Tsui to have my single entry visa done. It was quite easy, but you just need to pay the...

  • Minibus

    Hong Kong Transportation

    The red and green Minibuses that you see rushing along Hong Kong streets (and trust me sometimes you need to get out of their way) are known as Public Light Buses. These buses transport mainly locals to outlying residential areas of Hong Kong not fully serviced by conventional buses, or to areas where passenger numbers do not necessitate using a...

  • Airplane

    Hong Kong Transportation

    Qantas operates an international configured Airbus 330-300 from Perth into Hong Kong. This was our chosen method in to town. Qantas business class is ok. Although they are upgrading several of the 747s, the A330s still use the angled seats. These are far less than ideal for sleeping although still better than flying overnight in the back of the...

  • Kai Tak Airport

    Hong Kong Transportation

    I want to give a tribute to the most exciting toutchdown ever that was called "Hong Kong Approach"... That was enough a reason for going to HK! Search on the web with the phrases "Hong Kong Approach" or "Kowloon Approach" to vitually experience the thrill. I had one in 1989 and the airport was closed in 1998.

  • Bicycles

    Hong Kong Transportation

    The HK Macau ferries charge for oversize luggage. If you can stick it in a box then they should treat it as such and you pay an additional fee on top of your ticket. There is a good bike shop:- http://www.flyingball.com/ which should be able to help with the box and may even be able to help with transport. Enjoy your bike riding.

  • Ngong Ping Cable Car

    If you are going to Ngong Ping to see the Giant Buddha, I suggest you take the local bus to get there, rather than taking the cable car. You can take the cable car back down for the aerial view. Many international flights arrive early in the morning, so catching the 23 bus from Tung Chung Terminus scheduled to arrive before opening time (9am...

    Lantau Island is the largest outlying island in Hong Kong. It is being famous of Tian Tan Buddha or the Big Buddha in the center hill of the island.

Don't come here with the tour...

    In one of the high peaks of Lantau Island sits the Giant Buddha. This place can be reached via bus or cab or even by trekking. However, most tourists would go via the cable car. It was my longest cable car ride of about 25 minutes, spanning a length of 5.7 kms. and 8 towers. The ride offers a panoramic view of valleys, harbours, and HK...

    One of Hong Kong's highest points is aptly named Victoria Peak. It seats on a mountain top overlooking Victoria Harbor.

The terminal is located near Hongkong Park and travels...
