1 night Hong Kong stop over

by Nadya

Hi, very nice website, congrats.


Need your advise. I am transiting via HK, never been there. I am travelling with my 1,5 yo son, who will be in the pram.

Could you recommend some hostel where we can spend one night. It has to be very close to airport bus stop, so we can walk, and preferably easy to get it and out with the pram, and also somewhere near the mall - where we can eat and walk a bit and stretch before our next 10 hours flight.

Also, how much is the bus fare, and is there anything I have to know about them? and also do I have to book the room in the hostel in advance and how can I do it? Thank you very much.

Help with HK itinerary
by: oliveoyl

We'll be travelling in a group of 4 adults from Macau to HK by ferry on 4th March 2012. we'll arrive in HK at around 10am. We plan on staying in HK for 2 nights, leaving to Macau on the 6th March (planning to take the 8am ferry ride to Macau).

I'd like to have your suggestions on what we can do for 2 days in HK. FYI: We are planning to stay in Golden Crown or Royal Pacific on Canton rd in TST for 2 days (havent decided yet).

We plan to visit these places of interest in HK: Ngong Ping including the village, The Peak, Madame Tussauds, Avenue of Stars, Symphony of Light, Ladies Market and Temple Market.

It's rather ambitious i know..to plan on visiting these many places of interest (and many more if time permits-trying my luck here..). That's why we need your suggestions on how we can arrange our itinerary in HK.

Your suggestions would be greattttttly appreciated.

thank you :)

Re: HKG Int'l airport to Tsim Sha Tsui (night market)
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Glo,

Yes, you're right. I've checked the 5-star hotel prices around Kowloon area and generally, they're about HK$500 per night per person higher compared to Regal Airport Hotel. Plus, as you said that you can get a significant discount at Regal Airport Hotel then it may be good for you to stay there specially you're in a group of 5 persons, so that's a lot of savings.

You can get to the city with in 24 minutes @ HK$100 (HK$180 - round trip ticket) by Airport Express or by taking a taxi (can accommodate 5 persons) straight to Kowloon area particularly in Mong Kok for street market shopping with in 40 minutes @ HK$250.

HKG Int'l airport to Tsim Sha Tsui (night market)
by: Gloria

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

I have another inquiry. If we are arriving HKG around 6pm, are we still able to go to the night market.

Your suggestion is "it's better to stay in Tsim Sha Tsui area but the think the hotels are much expensive compared to Regal Airport Hotel. Airline employees get a decent discount and I don't know if you can suggest hotels which offer the same benefit for airline employees. I wonder if I can save money if we stay in Tsim Sha Tsui area. Another thing the hotels don't have toll free number. Anyway, I hope I can get feedback from you.

Thanks,
Gloria

HKG Int'l airport to Tsim Sha Tsui (night market)
by: Gloria

Hi,

I find this website very helpful to non frequent traveller to HKG.

I would like to ask what is your recommendation, where we can save money the most to check in the airport hotel (airline employees get decent discount but worried about the transp. fee because we are a party of 5) or find hotels within Tsim Sha Tsui area but I noticed that transp. fare going back to the hotel is quite a lot expensive. What can you recommend? Another thing, I find the hotels within Tsim Sha Tsui area so expensive, since we are a party of 5 they always recommend 2 rooms.

Thank so much for your comment.

Re: Overnight Lay-over in HK
by: HKinsider stellar

Hello Maria :)

You may do so by taking the Airport Express trains that runs every 10 minutes from 05:54 to 00:48 daily from Airport to/from City. Journeys between the Airport and downtown Hong Kong take approximately 24 minutes at HK$100 single journey.

The night market closes at around 23:00-00:00. Some of the stalls closes earlier and some later but you may still get to the next street for some more shopping.

Re: Will arrive in Tsim Sha Tsui around 12am-1am
by: HKboy

Hello Star,

If you're looking for a place to stay at TST, the Mirador Mansion is a building being comprised with lot of Guest House or Hostel. Upon your arrival at the entrance in the ground floor, right upon exit at MTR station, anytime you'll expect a two or three persons that will approach you to bargain their hotel rooms.

So there's really nothing to worry about as you can quickly and easily get one whenever you like.

Will arrive in Tsim Sha Tsui around 12am-1am
by: Star

Hi!

I found the instructions to Mirador Mansions very helpful.

I plan to find a place in Mirador Mansions on Wednesday morning (Aug 10 around 12am-1am) after the concert of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Is it still possible to find a place there at that time? Or would there be someone by the MTR exit who can help me find a room at that time?

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you very much.

Kind Regards,
Star

Re: Last bus stop
by: HKinsider Don

I assume that you're referring to bus that comes from HK Airport (Ground Transportation Centre).

The CTB A21 as mentioned above will take a round Tsim Sha Tsui area but the last stop is located at Hung Hom. Actually at Cheong Wan Road outside Hung Hom Station Concourse. The fare is HK$33.

Other bus, N21 that has an overnight schedule with a route from HK Airport (Ground Transportation Centre) to Tsim Sha Tsui area and the last stop is located at Salisbury Road outside Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier. It has a total of 37 stops. The fare is HK$23.

Last bus stop
by: Dhika again

I plan to stay in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Where is the last stop of bus near / around Tsim Sha Tsui area ?

Because if I want get back to my stay, & maybe I'm in the place that unreachable by MTR. I also feel loss if I take the bus and alight in the place that far from last stop of the bus.

Re: Pay bus with cash
by: HKinsider Don

Hi Dhika,

In Hong Kong, here's what to do when taking a public bus and paying bus fare with cash or without using an octopus card.

Upon getting into the bus (front side), you'll see a metal fare box located next to the bus driver. Put the exact amount of money thru the slot on top of the fare box whether it's a notes or coins or the combination of both. After doing so, just proceed to the bus seats. Anyway, the driver knows how much money you put in and call your attention only if it is not enough. You'll not be issued with ticket or any form of receipt.

Pay bus with cash.
by: Dhika

If I pay without octopus, of course I will need pay with exact cash.

I want to ask, after I pay the fare, is there anything to do or no?
for example like take the ticket. Because in Singapore we need to take the ticket if paying without card.

Thanks a lot

Re: 1 night Hong Kong stop over (cont.).
by: HKinsider Don

Here's the Citybus no. A21 bus stops location map to & from HK airport at Tsim Sha Tsui and some area of interest.

View Citybus A21 bus stops at TST in a larger map

The hostel charge per night is ranging from HK$150 to HK$300.

One regular meal at fast food restaurants like KFC or McDonald has an average of about HK$30.

Hope this help and good luck on your stay in Hong Kong!

Re: 1 night Hong Kong stop over.
by: HKinsider Don

I would like to re-phrase to what I've said re bus in HK. What I mean actually is that the MTR trains should be more comfortable than a bus but of course taking a bus with your 1.5 yo son is not a problem.

The octopus card has a great advantage when touring around Hong Kong. Not only that it will save you lot of time when you take the MTR trains, bus or pay some stores but also, it will give you some discount on fares. There's NO expiration date for the card but you need to pay a handling fee of HK$7 if returned with in 3 months.

Example if don't have an octopus card, the bus fare is HK$24.5 so you need to prepare for the exact amount (so imagine if you don't have an HK$0.5 in your pocket) to avoid a delay in the line and remember that most people in HK are always in hurry. Also if you give more than the required amount you'll NOT be given any change.

But in your case, as long as you can secure the exact amount needed before you take the bus then everything should be fine.

Here's how to get from HK airport to Mirador Mansion in TST by bus.

When you get into the arrival hall at HKIA, follow the directional signs that will guide you to the Airport GTC (Ground Transportation Centre) or airport bus terminus and it is to your right (left side for taxi) and about 3 minutes walk upon exit from the arrival hall.

HK airport --> Mirador Mansion route:
Take the bus no. A21 (Citybus) at Airport GTC (bus stop no.1) to bus stop no.13 at 82- 84 Nathan Road near Tsim Sha Tsui Station (Exit B1) then take about 3 minutes walk to the Mirador Mansion (please see map below). Bus travel time is approximately 62 minutes @ HK$33.

Note if using octopus: same day return fare = forward HK$33 + backward HK$16.5

Mirador Mansion --> HKIA route:
Take the same bus, CTB no. A21 from the bus station located almost opposite to the Mirador Mansion, at 83 Nathan Road before Haiphong Road, opposite Carnarvon Road and the Tsim Sha Tsui Station Exit D1. You need to cross to the opposite side of Nathan Road from Mirador. Bus travel time is approximately 64 minutes @ HK$33.

Thank you
by: Nadya

Thanks, Don

Few questions though... Why is it difficult to travel by bus? Its just I think my son is quieter when he can look through the window, and also all these interchanges can be quite confusing first time... I just thought that once we are in the bus, I can stop worrying and it will take us straight to the place...

Is there such bus? And do I have to buy Octopus card for it as well?

If I buy it, can I keep it till I am in HK next time (in 2 months)?

And the last one - how much money will I need? Transportation, hostel, food...

Thanks so much, normally I don't panic about all these things, but when you are with the child - different story....))))

by: HKinsider Don

If you're looking for a hostel for a night stay in HK it should be somewhere in Kowloon area as we can hardly find it elsewhere. I would suggest Mirador Mansion in Tsim Sha Tsui. It is a building that comprises a number of hostels and also, malls, signature shops, restaurants, fast food restaurants like KFC or McDonald, and transportation specially MTR trains is a proximity.

Taking a bus with a child in a pram is quite uncomfortable, so I would suggest that you take the trains instead.

HK airport --> Tsim Sha Tsui (by Airport Express + MTR trains):

Buy an octopus card from the Airport Express counter upon exit from HK immigration at the arrival hall in HKIA and surrender it to the same counter before departure to get your HK$50 deposit refund plus the remaining balance on the card.

Take the Airport Express from airport station to Tsing Yi station. Interchange to the Tung Chung Line MTR trains going to Hong Kong station but you need to get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line going to Central station and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station then take Exit D1 or D2 (42 minutes @ HK$60 fare for Airport Express and MTR trains are FREE using octopus card).

So actually, you'll only use your octopus card when you get into the Airport Express train and then upon exit at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station. It is not needed on the interchange stations.

Here's the Airport Express plus MTR trains route map between airport and Tsim Sha Tsui station.


The Mirador Mansion building is just right there upon exit of the MTR station. There is NO need for you to book in advance as you can easily get one and there are always people waiting at the ground floor that will guide you to the guest house.

Here's what you see upon exit at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station Exit D2. Right side is the Mirador Mansion and the street crossing ahead is the Nathan Road where you can easily find restaurants and malls.
