  • Hong Kong International Airport is located 30km from Hong Kong Island.
  • Unlike China, Hong Kong does not require Australian citizens to obtain a visa when visiting for less than 90 days. If you plan to visit both China and Hong Kong as they are in close proximity, you will need to organise a visa before entering China.

How to get into Hong Kong from the airport

You won't have trouble getting around Hong Kong as it has a highly developed and functioning transport system. The airport express MRT train line takes passengers to the city centre and other areas for HKD$5-$100 and is a great budget option. You can pre-book private transfers, shared transfers and hotel coaches to your accommodation. Taxis can be found outside the arrivals hall with red, green and blue taxis serving different areas of the island. Hiring a car isn't common in Hong Kong as taxis are more affordable but your other car option is to order an Uber from the airport.
