Hong Kong has one of the world's best metros and one of the world's best airports. The local taxi service is of comparatively good quality as well.
The drivers are professional, and scams and crimes are very uncommon compared to the Mainland or less-developed Southeast Asian countries. What is more, there are enough taxis running in the popular areas of Hong Kong to make them a convenient means of travel for tourists.
An extra fee is required of passengers when taxis take these routes: $30 for the Lantau Link, $10 for the Cross-Harbour Tunnel, $15 for the Eastern Harbour Crossing, and $15 for the Western Harbour Crossing.
Most Hong Kong taxi drivers are scrupulously honest and professional. However, if you have a complaint, take down the taxi or driver’s license number (usually displayed on the sun visor in front).
Call the Transport Complaints Unit Complaint Hotline (2889 9999), the police report hotline (2527 7177) or the Transport Department hotline (2804 2600). Be sure to have all the relevant details: when, where, and how much.
If taking local taxis doesn't sound like the way you would like to travel in Hong Kong, private cars are a way to travel with less hassles and more flexibility.
Private drivers might be the best option if you want to do a lot of touring or business or sightseeing in Hong Kong.
A private driver or aid from an English speaking guide/interpreter is relatively inexpensive compared to Western countries and Japan.
But pick a reputable company like China Highlights. You can arrange for our driver and guide to wait for you.
Our tours are developed through years of experience and customer feedback and are reasonably priced. They can be customized to your requirements.
