Hi how can I go from HKIA to Habour Plaza Resort City in Tin Shui Wai by bus?Thanks
Dear Sir or Madam, There is no direct bus from the airport to the hotel. If you would like to take a subway, you could take airport express to station, then take Tung Chung line at Tsing Yi station, at last change to West rail line at Nam Cheong station. Get off the subway at Tin Shui Wai station which is about 1 km from the hotel. Then you could take a taxi to the hotel. The whole distance is about 54 km, it takes about 2.5 hours.

Hello,We are going to be in Hong Kong on Jan 27 and we are trying to figure out the best way to get to our flat from the airport. It will be my husband, myself, our baby and our four yr old. We will have quite a bit of luggage (four large suitcases, stroller, four carry on bags, plus four backpacks), so we are thinking that taking the airport shuttle bus which we''ve done before will be too difficult for my husband and I to manage. Our concern about taking a taxi is that there would not be enough trunk space for all of our things. What would you suggest we do?

If one taxi is not enough, you can take two, I think that is the most cost effective way. we can also arrange a private van for you, it is US$278 for one transfer from airport to your hotel.

Hi, My family (2 adults and 2 kids) will be arriving Hong Kong on 24 Dec at about 5 pm. I would like to know should I take airport express or airport shuttle bus to reach Golden Mile Holdiay Inn Hotel? Which mode of transport is faster and easier? Would shuttler bus journey have nice scenery on the way to hotel? Thank you.

Hi Grace, you can take the airport express to Tsing Yi Station then transfer Metro Tung Chung Line. Stopover at Nam Cheong Station, then change Metro West Rail Line and get off at East Tsim Sha Tsui Station. The Golden Mile Holdiay Inn Hotel is about 250m away then. Here is the map of HK subway for your information: Sorry, I don't know if there are shuttle buses directly to your hotel. If yes, the scenery on the way would be fantastic.
