Hong Kong (City) - Getting There


Arriving by air will be the easiest option for most expatriates. Regular international flights operate out of Hong Kong. The Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA, Tel: 2181 0000 in English; website www.hongkongairport.com) has some 90 airlines operating out of the city, linking Hong Kong with over 155 destinations, including some 40 cities on mainland China.

From the airport, there are several choices to get to your final destination. There are express shuttles that will bring you into the city, as well as taxi services. The HKIA website offers a handy downloadable pdf on the various airport land transfer options. The pdf summarizes approximate taxi fares and contact numbers, coach schedules and has a simple map for reference.

Since Hong Kong's handover, Hong Kong has improved its status as a gateway to mainland China via its sea and land routes. Hence, you can also choose to reach Hong Kong via sea or land. Several multi-modal transport options (air-sea; air-land) link many Chinese cities to Hong Kong. There are some 240 daily coach trips to 160 destinations in mainland China. Alternatively, there are ferries linking HKIA to six Chinese cities – Shenzhen, Shekou and Fuyong, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai and Macau. For more information, refer to the HKIA's website that offers train and ferry schedules and destination guides.

There is an international train link between Hong Kong and Guangzhou (Canton) and beyond.

An express train to Beijing takes about 30 hours. For more information on the Chinese rail, you may wish to refer to the Chinese Ministry of rail at website www.chinamor.cn.net and www.tielu.org. The websites are in Mandarin. For an overall idea of the schedules in English, you may wish to refer to this link instead.
