Re: Airport Express Complimentary Shuttle Bus
by: HKinsider Don

The Airport Express Shuttle Bus is a complimentary add-on service (free of charge) provided exclusively for Airport Express passengers travelling between Hong Kong or Kowloon station and major hotels and railway interchanges.

There is NO Airport Express Shuttle Bus direct route from Hong Kong airport to any major hotel in the city.

Service routes would be:

* Airport Express train from HKIA --> Kowloon or Hong Kong station --> Airport Express Shuttle Bus from Kowloon or Hong Kong station --> your hotel.

* Airport Express Shuttle Bus from your hotel --> Kowloon or Hong Kong station --> Airport Express train from Kowloon or Hong Kong station --> Hong Kong airport.

Complimentary Shuttle Bus
by: Anonymous

I searched upon on the internet that there is complimentary shuttle buses to various hotels.

In that case, can I take Airport Express from Disneyland back to the airport (on the 2nd day of my arrival) and transfer to the shuttle service that head straight to the Royal Plaza hotel? Is there a certain criteria that I'd have to meet before boarding?

HK fun parks and attractions
by: Ask Ting Ting

Hi Felicia,

You asked in your post about attractions you shouldn't miss, so I wanted to give you my personal recommendation. I read that you travel with your family so for sure the fun parks are an important point. But what I also suggest as activity with children are the beautiful beaches of Hong Kong. Maybe go to South Bay beach, it is not far away from the crowded Repulse Bay. There you can relax in a quiet surrounding, while children are having fun.

I hope you'll have a great time in Hong Kong!

You can always expect lot of people taking MTR specially during rush hours, and I see the hassle in your case. Actually, you can take the trains but just avoid during rush hours like 7:30am to 9:00am and late afternoon.

Getting to Royal Plaza hotel from Disneyland Resort by bus.

Taking the CityBus CTB R11 from Disneyland Bus Terminus is also a good way to travel to Royal Plaza hotel and ideal for travelling with kids. Bus travel time is about 30 minutes @ HK$38.

Counting Disneyland Bus Terminus as bus stop no.1, you'll need to get off at bus stop no.3 which is located at 26 Lai Chi Kok Road outside Metropark Hotel Mongkok, after Prince Edward Road West and before Portland Street. Upon getting off from the bus, your hotel location is still bit far away approx 13 minutes walk (refer to map below) so it is not ideal specially bringing along with some luggage and with the kids. I suggest you take a short taxi drive to your hotel @ HK$20.

Here's the route map between Royal Plaza hotel and CTB R11 bus stop at 26 Lai Chi Kok Road outside Metropark Hotel Mongkok:

Thank you so much.

I've gathered some info from some friends who recommended that I should take the train to Disneyland as well as to Royal Plaza.

1) Is the trains be pack-jammed with commuters travelling? I'm just concerned about the hassle of pulling 2 luggage with 2 kids and not being able to get into the trains.

2) Another recommendation is to take bus (Route R11) from disneyland to Royal Plaza Hotel. I was also told that it is fast and cost HK$38. Is this recommended?

Many thanks to you.
