    At the Airport Express Concourse & Platform: It's a great place for people-watching! Watch as people come and go, kiss & fly, say goodbyes and give warm welcomes! That's a true transport interchange!

    Airport travelers can check their luggage👜👛in town then proceed to the airport bag-free, or spend the day in the city without carrying bags with you😊💕 I love it! Also available at Kowloon Station✈

    POSH - as in, port out, starboard home. Not a big deal, really, but the best views relative to direction of travel are on the left side from the airport and the right side to the airport.

    MTR Saver: Save $2 at Central-Mid-Levels Escalators & Walkway System. From IFC, walk up the escalator up to Hollywood Road and there's where you find the MTR saver

    Make sure you stop by Tim Ho Wan on your way down to the Airport Express train and order some cha xiu bao (pork buns) for your flight! Its on your left down the 1st escalator.

    Run like the clappers for the taxis. However, there are usually plenty of them so chill! If no taxis at all & huge queues, take lift up to street level & then cross the road to IFC mall entrance.

    The best airport in Asia. You can find all shops and services you need right when you landing or before taking off. Whatever you are looking for, you can find it here. Last thing is free Wi Fi ^^

    If you have planned to go fast to the airport, this is the only choice you want. The train is comfortable, took only about 25 minutes to the airport, and the greatest thing is you can check-in here.

    we bought Octopus Card to use in the city and AEL ticket for 2 for 160 HKD which is cheaper(80/each) than Octopus Card(100/each)

    This is great... The fact that you can check your luggage in during the day and then hit the town - especially if you have a late night flight out.

    It's a good way to travel to (from) the airport from HK Island, approx. 24 mins journey. The service hours 5:50am to 1:15am (a train come every 10 mins).

    Dont pay with your octopus card. If you buy a ticket at the counter, you can use the same ticket on the way back if you come back the same day. Saves u 100 hkd.

    A very convenient service in town!!! You can make sure that you won't miss the flight and check-in all suitcases. It costs 100 HK Dollar for a service :)

    If you travel alone, the price of HK $100 for airport to Central is good value for money. However it might be better for a party of 3-4 persons to take taxi.

    When you get on the elevators - stand on the side opposite of where you came in (most people don't realize the doors will open on the opposite side).

    Fast track to HKG aiport! One can check-in + baggage-in for most airlines (including Aeroflot btw) trains every 10 min, 24 min to airport.

    25mins from airport to Central, always reliable, get yourself a return ticket from the desk, save 20hkd then two single journeys

    If the line for taxi is too long and if u only have hand carry luggage, go upstairs to the drop off area. Jump into any taxi that just dropped passenger off.

    Make sure you buy tickets if you are traveling one way to HKIA with 2 or more people. It's cheaper than paying by octopus.

    Buying a two person group ticket is cheaper at 160 than a round trip at 180. Each ticket is good for one trip anyways!

    If you're taking 2 luggages and a carry on, make sure your carry on is backpack or shoulder strap style. It makes it very hard if you have 3 luggages on wheels.

    Got HK$66, need to reload your Octopus card, but just don't have the time? Do it when you come back! Don't let your card sit there for 1,000 days and reload when you come back!

    Starbucks isn't open in time for the 6:10am Airport Express, so don't count on it for your morning fix at that hour. You'll have to wait the 24 minutes until you get to the airport terminal.

    To use the elevator to get to the station, don't enter (with your ticket), go to the very side to enter specifically to use the elevator.

    You can buy Airport Express tickets with 30% discount at the travel agent next to the check-in area (on the left, ie next door to Starbucks).

    Don't forget that there's plenty to do in the IFC mall if you're early, and the train only takes 23 minutes. The food is also better here than at the airport.

    Get a return ticket, its valid for several days and will save you money if you plan to use the train twice!

    If the taxi queue is too long, go up a level to IFC and there are several alternative taxi lines. So long as you are not too bogged down with lugguage!

    PCCW wifi on the train :) Roaming tip - set your network to PCCW and do *166# to get FREE access (as well as other hotspots around the city)

    Much less expensive than a taxi if you are traveling by yourself and much more relaxing.

    Avoid lugging your heavy bag to the airport by using the in-town check-in service available here. It's also a good way to get rid of your bag in the morning if your flight isn't till the evening.

    Buy a round-trip ticket at the airport and save a little money. Cheaper than using an Octopus card.

    Trains run at 10 minutes interval on the Tung Chung line. Expect each train to be fully packed with holiday makers especially during weekends. The train frequency is simply not adequate.

    Buy an octopus card for HK$150 ($100 credit) if you're meeting an out of towner. Good for when your next guest comes to visit!

    4 people to airport = 250HK. CHEAPER IF MORE. Grab several other tourists and save more on group buy ;)

    You need to get to the airport express at least 90 minutes prior to your departure flight time. If not, you have to wait to check in at the airport.

    If there are no cabs and long lines, budget 10-15 minutes for each 'turn' in the line. If too much consider taxi stand at IFC mall.
