Hong Kong Airport Transfers for all Wallet Sizes

Bet you can’t wait to get out of the airport and begin your Hong Kong adventure! But, how do you get to the city? There are 3 main modes of transport to travel to (or from) the airport in Hong Kong; Train, Bus or Car. With options ranging from luxurious private car transfers to cheap public transport and even convenient shuttle buses, this easy guide will help you decide the best fit for your wallet!

By train

1. Hong Kong Airport Express

The Airport Express Line (AEL) train is the cheapest way to get out of the airport! Hop onto the train and arrive in the city center in under 30 minutes. Need to text your family and friends to let them know you’ve safely arrived? The train comes fully equipped with free WiFi! Try to get a seat in cars 1 or 7 which come equipped with charging stations for your phones and laptops!

When you alight, we recommend making use of the free shuttle bus services to major hotels and landmarks upon alighting from the stations. Check out the shuttle bus routes here

Most airlines also offer a complimentary check in service for AEL ticket holders from 90 mins up to one full day before you departure, so check in early and squeeze in a few more hours of sightseeing worry-free!

Skip the long lines at the station counters and get your discounted tickets at Klook! Simply scan your QR code at the turnstiles and you’re all set.

For a cheaper alternative, do as locals do, hop onto a Public Bus and head into the city. With many public stops near hotels, this option would be best for those on a budget and travelling light!

By car

1. Hong Kong Taxis

Taxis in Hong Kong are plentiful and can be hailed easily along the streets (except for some restricted areas). They are metered,air conditioned and clean but can be a bit confusing for tourists. You’ll notice that the taxis are different colored, and bear in mind it DOES make a difference.

2. Private hire for groups and families

For families (3 and more) and people travelling with many luggages, an MPV would be the best choice. Get whisked off in comfort without worrying about navigating the roads, public transport system or even toll charges!

Book an MPV with Klook and ease your worries of being tourist touted. The driver holding a signboard with your name will collect you and your luggages from the arrival hall and whisk you off in comfort!

The Hong Kong International Airport is also connected to the Pearl River Delta. So, if you’re heading to Shenzhen or Guangzhou, the same V.I.P ride can be arranged too! You’ll not only skip the long immigration lines, it’ll also save you the trouble of getting out of your vehicles and lugging all your baggage along.

Getting around Hong Kong

1.Octopus Card

Now that you’ve settled your transportation from the airport, you’ll need to know how to get around Hong Kong.

This contactless card allows you to pay for your trips as well as your shopping at grocery stores, convenience stores and even fast food joints! Simply add value to your card at any convenience store and you’re all set!

This is also a more wallet-friendly option as compared to getting multiple single trip tickets! Save the hassle of queuing up at station counters and fumbling with small change each time you travel.
