Getting to Hong Kong

Most people who visit Hong Kong come by plane and as it is one of the major stop over points for several long haul international flights, hundreds of flights stop at Hong Kong each day and it is often in the top 20 busiest airports of the world.

In 1998 a new airport was built on Chep Lap Kok island beside Lantau Island, a massive project that saw  Chep Lap Kok not only flattened but also tripled in size. A huge road project also saw the new airport connected to not only Lantau and Hong Kong island but also to Kowloon which had several large city blocks reclaimed from the harbour in the process.

Getting to and from the airport can be achieved by either taxi, bus or the Airport Express railway that departs about every 5 min from central Hong Kong. The fast speed of the Airport Express means the trip takes about 20 min from the city and you can even check your bags in at a terminal in the city enabling you to do some last minute city shopping.

Hong Kong is also the departure point and destination of the many cruise liners that sail the Asian region. While it is possible to cross the boarder from China into Hong Kong you will need a visa to get to China in the first place as the visa rules are much stricter in China than in Hong Kong.
