Bus Services, Hong Kong: 82 reviews and 103 photos

Most people don't really know about it, others are afraid of taking a bus from the airport into Hong Kong. A real shame since the ride on one of HK's double-decker airport buses (Cityflyer) is firstly really exciting and secondly a nice way of getting an orientation-city-tour at the same time.

There are two kinds of buses providing services into main HK:
The "A"-buses provide luggage storage facilities and cost around 40HK$ (depending on your desination), while "E"-buses do not allow luggage (i.e. suitcases) and cost around 20HK$.

The Airport Express is definitely a good alternative as it's fast, clean and easy to use (you can board directly from the Airport Arrival Hall) but it's firstly much more expensive and personally, I always preferred the bus-ride as it is cheaper and (for me) far more interesting.

However, it mainly depends on your final destination as the buses are not serving every single hotel or, if they do, they do not necessarily stop right in front of them and you need to walk the remaining distance. Hence, especially if you are visiting HK for the first time, it might be a little tricky to get off at the right stop.

The bus terminus is just outside the airport Arrival Hall. Follow the signboards and keep right. You can't miss them! Detailed routing schedules with timetable are provided inside and outside the Arrival Hall but it's worth checking your destination via the below link up-front.
