Transportation

Public Transportation Options
The city claims to have one of the world's safest, most efficient and frequently used public transportation system. The Hong Kong Tourism Board website is a great resource to learn more about Hong Kong and public transportation options.

Airport Express
The Airport Express is highly recommended for your trip to and from the airport. This express train is the fastest and most affordable option from the airport costing about US $40 (HK $300) and taking approx. 30 minutes to Hong Kong Island.

Mass Transit Railway (MTR)
For your convenience you may purchase a Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Tourist Day Pass while registering for the meeting. The MTR allows unlimited travel on the MTR and the Light Rail. Tickets cost US $7.10 (HK $55) per ticket per day. The Admiralty station on the MTR is less than a 15 minute walk from the Asia Society Hong Kong Center. MTR tickets do not include bus or ferry service.

Please visit the MTR website for more information about local transportation and ticket options.

Taxi

traffic.jpgTaxis are plentiful in the city and can easily be hailed on the street or summoned by phone. All rides are metered, relatively cheap, air-conditioned and clean. Taxis in Hong Kong are categorized by three colors, each indicating a geographical area. All taxis can travel to and from Hong Kong International Airport. Red taxis operate throughout most of Hong Kong, except for Tung Chung Road on Lantau Island and on the entire south side of Lantau Island. Green taxis only service the New Territories. Blue taxis only operate on Lantau Island.

Tips for a hassle free taxi trip:

  • Taxis can usually easily be hailed along the street, although they cannot pick up or drop off passengers in certain restricted zones. It is often a good choice to opt for either a taxi queue at a hotel or a taxi stand.

  • Drivers are required to use the taximeter, and passengers are required to pay the exact fare as recorded by the taximeter.

  • Always ask for a machine-printed receipt. If the machine does not work, the taxi driver is obliged to provide a hand-written receipt.

  • All taxis are regulated and taxi drivers are required to display their taxi driver identity cards on their dashboards.
