Your first impression of any city (after the airport and immigration/customs) is the transit from the airport into the city. Some cities make it easier than others. This article explains how to take the Airport Express train into Hong Kong (and back to the airport).
The Star Ferry is a ferry service between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, crossing the Victoria Harbour. It’s been in operation since 1888, and today it carries 26 million passengers per year. It’s very inexpensive, offers amazing views of the Hong Kong skyline, and is a convenient way to cross the harbour.
If you’re only in Hong Kong for 24-36 hours on a layover, we show you how to make it a mini-vacation and see all the best sights.
