Quickest way from Victoria peak to Ngong Ping 360 and cable care ride.

by Jay
(USA)

We are arriving in Hong Kong International airport at 6:30 am and would like to see the Peak first and head out to Ngong Ping 360 and take the cable car ride. I wanted to take the star ferry also if feasible. I need to reach the airport from Ngong Ping by 8pm.


Please advice on the quickest and yet scenic route. I also wanted to get an idea of how much time each of these attractions would take. Thanks, Jay

Answer/Recommendations:

Hello Jay,
Thank you for writing THKA. Here's the route we've prepared for you which is also based on your request.

From HK airport --> Take the airport express trains, 24 minutes trip to the city (read for a detailed info here). --> Take the Peak Tram to the Victoria Peak or "The Peak" (you can have your breakfast up in the Peak while looking the spectacular views that the Peak has to offer). --> At about 10:00am, you should go back down thru the Peak Tram. --> Take a taxi to the Star Ferry terminal (Bus No. 15C is also an option but it takes some time). --> Take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui. Upon arrival, to your right is the Avenue of Stars - take some time in there also to see the Hong Kong Island in the opposite side (this is the place where to watch the Symphony of Lights during night time). --> Take MTR trains from Tsim Sha Tsui to Tung Chung MTR station (actually, Tsim Sha Tsui->Lai King->Tung Chung) a 39 minutes trip (HK$15.5).

From Tung Chung MTR Station, find exit B to the Ngong Ping 360 terminal for a 25 minutes cable car ride to Ngong Ping terminal at Lantau (read detailed information and fine more attractions that Ngong Ping has to offer in here).

After exploring NP 360, take the cable car back to Tung Chung and then take a Lantau taxi (blue) to the HK airport from Ngong Ping 360's Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal for just around 10 minutes ride at a cost of around HK$30.

Good luck and enjoy your trip!

Re: Itinerary for Macau-HK
by: HKinsider stellar

Hello :)

I suggest you purchase the Octopus card since you will be staying for more than 3 days. An octopus card will cost HK$150, which is inclusive of a HK$50 refundable deposit and HK$100 stored value. So any amount left on the card at the end of your stay in Hong Kong is refundable along with the HK$50 deposit minus HK$7 for handling fee.

Your Octopus can be reloaded up to HK$1,000 in total value at thousands of locations throughout Hong Kong. Visit the following locations for cash reloading:

-Authorised Add Value Service Providers, such as convenience stores, supermarkets, fast-food chains

-MTR Customer Service Centres

Re: Itinerary for Macau-HK
by: Anonymous

Hi Good day!
Can you please recommend us an itinerary on our trip to Macau and Hongkong?
I, together with my brother and sister will have a tour in Macau and Hongkong from Aug.6-Aug.8, 2012. Well, actually, it seems that it will only be from aug7-8 since we will be arriving in Macau International Airport at around 9:00 PM of August 6. Then after that, we want to immediately go to Hongkong and spend the whole day of August 7 there. Then we should be back in Macau in the morning of August 8 for us to have some time to tour the place since our flight back will be at 9:40 PM of August 8. We are actually having a hard time in creating our itinerary which we can maximize the time and have opportunity to visit Disneyland, Victoria Harbor for the Symphony of Lights, shopping, and others. We're hoping to get a response from you:) thank you so much!:)

Re: Stroller
by: HKinsider stellar

Hello Weng :)

Stroller is a big help for you and your little girl since you'd be having long walks most of the time.

Don't worry about the transportation. Taxis have big luggage compartments and train platforms are very spacious so you can easily go on board.

Also, most of the major attractions and shopping malls have lockers for rent.


Stroller
by: Weng

Hello. It's my first time to visit Hongkong & Macau with my 5 year old girl.

I was wondering if I can bring a stroller for her since we wont' be traveling with my hubby to avoid hassle on carrying her if she gets tired. We're going to Disneyland * go shopping on the next day.

Can you tell me if I bringing a stroller would be a big help or a hassle. thanks so much.

i would like to know if the following list of hk attractions are doable upon our 2 half day free time and i would like to ask for the proper arrangement of attractions, the transportation from Dorsett far east hotel to one attraction to the other and back to the hotel.

October 24,2011 after check-in (estimated time: 12:00-overnight stay @ hk)
-ocean park, the peak tram, madame Tussauds, symphony of lights, shopping at mongkok

October 25, 2011 after the compulsory morning tour (estimated time: 12:00-20:00 to shenzhen)
-ngong ping 360, giant Buddha, disneyland.

would it be advisable to avail the octopus card for transportation purposes?

Re: Getting to Anne Black (YWCA) Guest House Hong Kong
by: HKinsider Don

@ Nengski,

Please click here to read topic discussion (scroll down to the post dated "Jun 28, 2011" on that page) about the hotel location and getting there instruction to the most popular Hong Kong attractions like Disneyland & Ocean Park.

Further down below on that page (post dated "Jul 01, 2011"), you'll find the location map of the Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal and a route direction in getting there.

If taking the MTR trains from the Ferry terminal, it should be around 8 minutes walk to the Tsim Sha Tsui Exit A1 at Haiphong Rd --> take Tsuen Wan Line train and get off at Mong Kok station Exit D3 (7 minutes @ HK$4.6) --> walk 10 minutes to the hotel.

As you notice that you need some long walks to get into the hotel so it should be a good choice to take a taxi specially if bringing along some luggage. It will be about 12 minutes drive @ HK@30 from the ferry terminal straight to The Anne Black YWCA Guest House Hong Kong.

Re: Re: 12 hour HK stopover
by: Tourist

Very helpful information. Thank you so much.

Re: 12 hour HK stopover
by: HKinsider Don

HI, here are my comments and suggestions to your additional inquiries:

1. Of course you can always use a taxi cab as your way of transportation to all the places you've mentioned.
A taxi from HK airport straight to Avenue of Stars will cost around HK$250.

2. Yes, the Peak Tram opens @ 7:00am but the Peak Tower opens at 10:00am.
In getting to Ngong Ping in Lantau by taxi from the Peak would cost around HK$300. Or, please click here to read another route version.

Note: Ngong Ping is a kind of remote area in Lantau Island that the most direct transportation in getting there is thru the cable car from Tung Chung.

3. Yes, you need to have some HKD cash specially when taking taxis in Hong Kong. You can easily change your money at Money Exchanger booths at the HKIA arrival hall.

4. NO other public way, you should take the 268 steps in getting to the top of Tian Tan Buddha.

5. HK weather forecast for Sept 22 - 23 is rain with temperature ranging from 26degC to 29degC.

Re: 12 hour HK stopover
by: Tourist

Thank you for your suggestions. I just wanted to ask you a few follow-up questions, if I may-

1. Can I get from the Airport to Harbor View/Ave of stars and finish it by 10am and then take a cab to Lantau? I'm not really interested in walking around too much and just want to see the view/skyline? I can skip the temple if time is short.

2. I think the peak tram starts at 7am..so, can I be done by 9am with victoria harbor view/tram and then take a taxi to lantau?

3. Do I need to have HKD cash to pay the taxi drivers or do they take credit cards or some prepaid pass? How much would be the fare from peak tram stop to lantau?

4. Also, is there a way to get to the top of big buddha without walking the steps?

5. How's the weather around September 22-23?

Thanks again for your help. Mh goi :)

Re: 12 hour HK stopover
by: HKinsider Don

Hi, the first thing you need to consider is that most of the HK tourist attractions opens at 10:00am except to those ones that are open to the public (free) like Avenue of Stars and the Victoria Harbour. So basically, you have only about 6 hrs from 10:00am until 4:00pm.

Second, the no.4 in your tourist attractions list (Lantau/Monastery) will be classified into another route direction which make it not ideal to include in the first 3 nos.

So here's my itinerary options suggestion for HK layover to maximized your time:

Option 1: HKIA --> The Peak (before 10:00am until 12:00 noon) --> Man Mo Temple (until 1:00pm) --> Avenue of stars / Victoria Harbour (until 3:00pm) --> back to HKIA (approx arrive at 4:00pm).

Here's how to get there.
Take the Airport Express train from Hong Kong airport station to Hong Kong station Exit A1 (24 minutes @ HK$100) --> take a taxi to the Peak Tram lower terminal (7 minutes @ HK$25) --> take the Peak Tram up to the Peak (HK$40 - round trip ticket) --> tram back to lower terminal --> taxi to Man Mo Temple (5 minutes @ HK$20 - see note below) --> taxi to Central Ferry Pier no. 7 (5 minutes @ HK$20) --> take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui (9 minutes @ HK$2.5) --> stroll along TST promenade to visit the Avenue of Stars and enjoy the beautiful view of Victoria Harbour --> taxi to Kowloon MTR station (7 minutes @ HK$25) --> take Airport Express train to HKIA (21 minutes @ HK$90).

Note: There are several Man Mo Temple in Hong Kong and the largest is located at 124-126 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong Island which is a suitable location for your route.

Option 2: HKIA --> Ngong Ping (and the rest of Lantau tourist attractions), please click here to read the getting there detailed info (scroll down to the post titled "itinerary #2" on that page).

Get into the Disneyland Resort MTR station and take the train to Sunny Bay station --> interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line and get off at Hong Kong station (last station) and take Exit A1 or E2 (31 minutes @ HK$21.7) --> take a taxi to the Peak Tram (about 7 minutes @ HK$25).

Or, upon getting at Hong Kong station, walk to the adjacent Central station and take Exit J, then walk about 12 minutes to the Peak Tram Lower Terminal at Garden Road, Central, here's to view a walk route map.

The weather forecast in Hong Kong this coming Sept 3-7 in general will be as follows;

Temperature: 27degC to 32degC; Rain
Precipitation: 75%

I afraid it is not really a pleasant day for you to visit HK's open air tourist attractions specially along with the kids if weather condition is raining. Your alternate choice are those indoors like the museums and shopping malls specially the ones with kids playground, definitely you and your kids surely loves it.

Please visit this page to read this topic "Recommendation for a place to keep the kids entertained" to know where those places in HK that is suitable for kids.

Re: ITINERARY FOR AUG 13-15, 2011
by: HKinsider Don

Hi gINGXTINE,

Here are my comments to your initial itinerary:

Aug 13, Sat: From HK Airport take the Citybus CTB A21 to TST area. I'm sure you can easily find a hostel in Mirador Mansion.

After check in, walk 6 minutes to the Star Ferry Pier and take the Star Ferry to Central (9 mins @ HK$2.5). Walk to the nearby Central Pier Bus terminus and take the bus 15C to the Peak Tram Lower terminal (10 mins @ HK$4.2). Take the Tram up to the Victoria Peak (suggest you purchase the round trip ticket @ HK$40).

From the Peak, follow the same route (in reverse order) when getting back to TST promenade where you can visit the Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights show that starts at 8:00pm.

After the show, get into the TST MTR station nearby and take the Tsuen Wan Line train to Mong Kok station (7 mins @ 4.6) and then take Exit E2 and follow direction to the Ladies' Market for about 4 minutes walk.

Jade market is only up to 5:00pm.

Aug 14, Sun: You may consider this itinerary: Hotel at TST --> Ngong Ping (whole morning) --> HK Disneyland (afternoon until 9:00pm to watch the fireworks show) --> back to hotel

* The Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car was already back in operation since end July, 2011 from maintenance scheduled downtime. It is a remote part of Lantau Island and the most direct and efficient way to get there is thru the cable car.

* Here's how to get from Tsim Sha Tsui to Ngong Ping 360 at Tung Chung Town Centre by Train:
Get into the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station, take the Tsuen Wan Line trains towards Tsuen Wan and get off at Lai King Station then change to Tung Chung Line/Disneyland Resort Line trains towards Tung Chung and get off on that last station (HK$15.1, 34 minutes) and take Exit B. Walk 4 mins to the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal and then take the Cable Car (25 minutes @ HK$115 round trip ticket) ride to Ngong Ping, Lantau Island.

* Getting to HK Disneyland from Ngong Ping. Take the Cable Car back to Tung Chung terminal and get into the Tung Chung MTR station. Take the Tung Chung Line trains and just get off at the next station, Sunny Bay station. Interchange trains to the Disneyland Resort Line that will bring you straight to Disneyland (18 minutes @ HK$11.9).

* Places of interest in Tung Chung area includes the popular Citygate Outlets.

by: gINGXTINE

Hi! my friends and I will arrive in HK Aug 13, 10am and will be leaving HK by Aug 15 at 9:45am, we suppose we could easily find hotel or inn in TST before 1pm on Aug 13. I made a rough itinerary and may you kindly check in order to maximize our time.

Aug 13 - 1-4pm- The Peak, madam Tussauds, Victoria Harbour (with Avenue of Stars, HK skyline & symphony of lights), and the remaining evening for night markets (ladies & jade).

Aug 14 - disneyland for the whole day

If we go to ngong ping 360 is the cable car already operational?

with the itinerary I made maybe we could squeeze some other places to go?

Thank you.

3 nights & 4 days in HK
by: Anonymous

My family will be arriving in HK on Aug 5 at 1Pm and will be staying in a Hotel at citygate. Upon arrival we are planning either go to the outlet mall or Victoria Harbour in the late afternoon. If we do go to Victoria Harbour to see the symphony of light on the 5th will it be too tiring for us to spend whole day on Aug 6 in Disneyland for my 5 yr old daughter? We would like to squeeze a trip to Ngong Ping cable, Victoria Peak & Victoria Harbour on Aug 7 and rest on the 8th before our flight.

Please help me to plan our trip with less stress and more on an enjoyable one. With this, please indicate a more reasonable form of transportation, which would enable us to enjoy the scenery yet not to spend too much on travel time.

Re: 5 days 4 night hong-kong macau trip
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Ayush,

The luggage lockers for rent in Citygate Outlets has a maximum size of 22 X 31 X 35 inches (LWH) @ HK$20 / 2 hours. If you think it is not enough then you can rent the luggage lockers in HK Disneyland entrance with unlimited size for whole day @ HK$60. In this case, you may go straight to Disneyland from HK airport to store your luggage (considering also that Disneyland is your final tourist spot destination on that day) and then back to Tung Chung to take the NP cable car to Ngong Ping.

Here's to read more details about luggage lockers at Citygate Outlets in Tung Chung and HK Disneyland.

The itinerary you've provided above is fine, only I suggest a little more in your "Aug 14" route to maximized your time while in HK;

* Aug 14: Ocean Park (morning until 4:00pm) --> Victoria Peak (until 7:00pm) --> Take the bus 15C to Central Pier --> Take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) while taking a look at the magnificent Victoria Harbour view --> walk along TST promenade to visit the Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights show that starts at 8:00pm ?-> HK nightlife, you may take the Star Ferry back to Central to visit Lan Kwai Fong.

What you read about Tsim Sha Tsui is right, in fact the place is known as the heart of the city, a transportation hub, good place for dining and shopping so that is why TST area is highly recommended place to stay for tourist.

Re: Itinerary for HK - Macau

Hello Mei,

Basically you only have 3 days in Hong Kong so here's my personal itinerary suggestion.

Day 1 (Sept. 5): HK Disneyland --> Shopping at CityGate Outlets in Tung Chung.

Day 2 (Sept. 6): Ocean Park --> The Peak --> Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights at TST promenade --> Theme street market shopping.

Day 3 (Sept.7): Macau --> HK airport (by ferry)

I suggest you read the topic discussions below that are related to your HK - Macau trip.

Re: 6 hours layover - is HK Disneyland possible?
by: HKinsider Don

Your time is a bit tight for Hong Kong Disneyland as the park offers a full-day activity but it is doable.

I suggest you take a taxi considering you're traveling along with kids.

A taxi between HK airport and Hong Kong Disneyland will take about 40 minutes drive and cost around HK$110 (for one-way trip). So, you can allocate 1.5 hours for a return transportation and that means you have at least 4 hours to explore the park.

My other suggestion just to be safe from being left in your next flight is to stay at the airport and do shopping. The popular Citygate Outlets mall is just 10 minutes by taxi from the airport.

RE: First time in HK
by: HKinsider Don

Hello Nam,

Your itinerary is fine for me. Here are some additional information that I need to mention.

Day 1 comments and additional info:

* In getting to Ngong Ping from Tung Chung. A taxi will cost around HK$200 for about 35 minutes drive but you also have a bus option, Bus No.23 (48 minutes @ HK$17.2) from Tung Chung Town Centre Bus Terminus (close to Tung Chung MTR station or adjacent to the Citygate Outlets) to Ngong Ping Bus Terminus at Ngong Ping.

* Tung Chung to Mong Kok station by MTR, 32 minutes @ HK$14.1

Day 2 comments and additional info:

* Mong Kok to Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) station by MTR, 7 minutes @ HK$4.6 per person, so it is also ideal to take a taxi instead for less than 10 minutes drive at HK$25.

* To Serenade Restaurant. East TST MTR Exit L4 (much closer) or TST MTR Exit F.

* Dried Seafood Shop Des Voeux Road West opening hours: daily from 9:30am to 7:00pm

* Shopping at Argyle Centre which is located at 65 Argyle Street, Mong Kok, Hong Kong. It opens daily from 12:00 noon to 11:30 or actually until midnight. For other Mong Kok popular shopping malls, please click here for more information and opening hours.

Re: Ngong Ping 360
by: HKinsider Don

Yes, I afraid the cable car service at Ngong Ping 360 is still down when the time you get in Hong Kong. Just in case that will be the scenario then here are your options to get into Ngong Ping from Tung Chung area.

You may take a taxi from Tung Chung straight to Giant Buddha at Ngong Ping for about 35 minutes @ HK$200. Or,

You can take the New Lantau Bus (Bus No.23) for about 48 minutes bus trip @ HK$17.2 from Tung Chung Town Centre Bus Terminus (close to Tung Chung MTR station or adjacent to the Citygate Outlets) to Ngong Ping Bus Terminus at Ngong Ping. It takes 37 bus stops to get there.

Ngong Ping 360
by: Anonymous

I am going to HK from 20-23 June, 2011.

Planning to ride the NP360 cable car. But then I found in their website that it is under maintenance starting from 23 May 2011 for about 1 month. Thus I wish to clarify that is it more than 1 month or less than 1 month, since my time spends in HK is just nearly 1 month after that.

If I cant get the cable car ride, is it very time-consuming to take the bus? and how about the taxi fare from Tung Chung to the Giant Buddha? Thanks for your information.

Can you please advise us on our itinerary in Hongkong and Macau?

Will it be possible to get visa for Shenzhen at China border? We would like to travel that city for a day.

Re: Night time layover in Hong Kong.
by: Anonymous

I would recommend along the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade if you want to experience a wonderful night in Hong Kong.

This place is one of the most popular tourist spots in Hong Kong specially early evening until midnight where you can visit the Avenue of Stars and watch the nightly sound and light show at 8:00pm, "The Symphony of Lights" crossing the Victoria Harbour. A good place to relax and unwind from stressful day event.

The Symphony of Lights in Hong Kong!


Transportation recommendation in getting to TST promenade from airport;

By Bus: Take the CityBus CTB A21 from Airport bus stop no.1 (Ground Transportation Centre) and get off at bus no.15 (Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, opposite to the New World Centre) for 66 minutes bus ride @ HK$33 then take a short walk to the TST promenade and Avenue of Stars. Bus service hours is from 5:30 am until 00:00 midnight.

By Airport Express + short taxi drive: Take the Airport Express trains from Airport station to Kowloon station for 21 minutes @ HK$90. Then take a taxi to TST promenade area for about 12 minutes drive @ HK$25. This would be the fastest way to travel but quite expensive.

Read more discussion about from HK airport to Tsim Sha Tsui.

Another place which is very popular for nightlife in Hong Kong is Lan Kwai Fong if you want to morning the night! This place is a walking distance from Hong Kong station for Airport Express trains where you can quickly get back to HK airport within 24 minutes @ HK$100.

Also, there's NO problem in getting a sleep at the HK airport. You can always find lot of people doing it right there waiting for their connecting flights on the next day. HK airport is very clean and also has a free wi-fi internet connection for your notebook computer or smart phones.

Night time layover in Hong Kong.
by: NY-RP

Our flight arrives HKIA @ 7 pm and our flight departs the following morning @ 7 am.

I checked the hotel rates near the airport and they are all over $100 so I'm convinced it's not worth checking in at the hotel.

We're thinking of going around HK, have dinner and go back to the airport at midnight.

Not sure what to do w/ the sleeping part (yet) but I would appreciate any suggestions on what we can see in HK at night time?

Re: 11 hrs layover in Kong Kong
by: HKinsider Don

Please find itinerary suggestion on the above topic (Sightseeing information in Hongkong), any of those will definitely applicable in your 11 hours layover in HK.

Let me know if you need more clarifications or if you have further questions.

Re: Sightseeing information in Hongkong
by: HKinsider Don

5 hours layover in Hong Kong is a bit tight but any of these itinerary can be done.

Itinerary 1: Shopping at the popular shopping mall located at Lantau Island and a proximity to the HK airport.

Itinerary 2: Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride and the popular Lantau Island attractions.

Route timetable between HK airport and Ngong Ping:
* HK airport to Ngong Ping 360 terminal at Tung Chung = 10 minutes @ HK$35
* Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car to Ngong Ping = 25 minutes @ HK$80 one way or HK$115 return (recommended).

Total travel time from HK airport to Ngong Ping by taking the cable car is about 35 minutes or we can give a time allowance of 2 hours traveling time including your return trip to the airport. So basically you still have about 3 hours to spend at Ngong Ping attractions.

Option: A taxi straight to Ngong Ping from HK airport will take about 40 minutes drive @ HK$175.

Itinerary 3: Sightseeing at the Victoria Peak for a 360 spectacular view of Hong Kong skyline.

Route timetable (most efficient way to reach the Peak from HKIA with limited time):
* Airport Express train from Airport to Central (via Hong Kong) station = 24 minutes @ HK$100 single journey ticket or @ HK$180 for return tickets (recommended).
* Taxi from Central to the Peak Tram station = 5 minutes @ HK$20
* Peak Tram straight to the Peak = 7 minutes @ HK$28 one way or @ HK$40 for return (recommended).

Total travel time from HK airport to the Peak is about 36 minutes or we'll budget a 2 hours traveling time including your return trip to the airport. So basically you still have about 3 hours to spend at the Peak.

Option: A walk from Central to the Peak Tram station can be read in here including map.

Related topic discussion:
How to get to the Victoria Peak tramway from the HK Airport.

If you hesitate to do any of the above itinerary and want to make sure that you can make your next flight, I suggest you just stay at the airport premises for shopping.

Also, HK airport has a free Wi-Fi internet connection for your notebook computer or smart phones.

Re: HKIA to Mong Kok then back to Tung Chung.
by: HKinsider Don

The best route that I can recommend to your arrival day at Hong Kong will be as follows:

HK airport --> Tung Chung --> Ngong Ping (attractions at Lantau island) --> back to Tung Chung --> MTR trains to Mong Kok and YES, this is very doable.

Actually you can rent and leave your luggage at Citygate Outlets in Tung Chung. Big size storage lockers has a dimension of 22" X 31" X 35" @ HK$20 per two hours while the small size storage lockers has a dimension of 15" X 31" X 15" @ HK$10 per two hours.

Proceed to Ngong Ping by taking the cable car (24 minutes) or take the bus NLB 23 or NLB 2 from Tung Chung Bus Terminus (Terminal) to Ngong Ping Bus Terminus (Terminal) at Ngong Ping. Total bus travel time is 68 minutes @ HK$32.2 for about 40 bus stops.

From Ngong Ping, take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car back to Tung Chung. Upon arrival at Tung Chung Cable Car terminal, proceed to Citygate outlets for shopping and then get your luggage.

As you noticed that the most direct transportation between Ngong Ping and Tung Chung is only through the Cable Car. Taking a bus or taxi will take time as it will go around almost to the whole Lantau Island. So it is practical to get a return ticket for the Ngong Ping 360 @ HK$115 (HK$80 for one way).

Here's a map of Tung Chung showing location markers of cable car terminal, bus terminus, Citygate outlets, and MTR train station:

View Tung Chung, Lantau Island, Hong Kong in a larger map

Getting to Mong Kok from Tung Chung by MTR trains:

Get into the Tung Chung MTR station and take the Tung Chung Line heading towards Hong Kong station but get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line going to Central station and get off at Mong Kok. Total train travel time is 32 minutes @ HK$13.8

Hope this help and have a wonderful stay in Hong Kong!

Re: Hongkong and Macau itinerary
by: HKinsider Don

June 20: Upon arrival at HK airport, I suggest you should go directly to your hotel to check-in and leave your luggage. Stay somewhere at Tsim Sha Tsui area, the place that is known to be the heart of the city where transportations, shopping mall and signature shops, bar and restaurants are in proximity.

Below TST map shows the location of Mirador Mansion, Chungking Mansions and nearby point of interest mentioned above.

View Hostel at Tsim Sha Tsui in a larger map

June 21: The most efficient route should be...
Ocean Park --> Victoria Peak (where you can visit Madame Tussauds) --> Victoria Harbour (Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights).

To see how to get there instructions including MTR route map to Ocean Park from Tsim sha Tsui area and then to the Victoria Peak (scroll further down below to that page "Peak from Ocean Park", please click here.

June 22: I recommend this itinerary = Ngong Ping --> Disneyland --> back to TST for Street Market shopping.

This itinerary is being discussed in here including the instructions in getting there.

Re: Estimated taxi fee from Tai O to Tung Chung
by: HKinsider Don

See this Ngong Ping 360 location map and nearby attractions for your reference.

View Ngong Ping 360 in a larger map

From the Giant Buddha (Ngong Ping 360) to Tai O is about 14 minutes at 7 km distance. Taxi fare is about HK$85.

While from Tai O to Tung Chung MTR station is about 35 minutes taxi drive at 23 km distance. Taxi fare is about HK$120.

Taxis in HK are color coded so you should see more and take the color BLUE taxis which serve all destinations in Lantau and the airport area. You may also see RED taxis (urban taxis) that serve all destinations throughout Hong Kong while the GREEN taxis are only allowed at New Territories (N.T.) and specific roads in Lantau.

Here are the taxi fares (by color):

Flag down (for the first 2 kilometers):
Red taxi = HK$15
Blue taxi = HK$12
Green Taxi = HK$12.5

Every 0.2km (after the first 2 kilometers):
Red taxi = HK$1.4
Blue taxi = HK$1.2
Green Taxi = HK$1.2

Note that you need to pay an extra HK$5 for each luggage that you put into the taxi baggage compartment.

Hope this help, have a safe trip and enjoy your stay in Hong Kong!

Need help with an itinerary for this.

Our hotel is in Tin Sui Wai, New Territories.
How can we go to the following:

Ngong Ping 360
Disneyland
Avenue of Stars & Symphony of Lights
Ocean Park
The Peak and Sky Terrace
Macau

Is this doable for a 3 days trip?

Yes, the Junk Boat is visible in the victoria harbour specially when you travel between Tsim Sha Tsui and Central Ferry Pier. It is always very spectacular to see it at night.

Bus 2 from Mui Wo Pier Bus Terminus to Ngong Ping Bus Terminus travel time is about 45 minutes @ HK$17.2. It is quite slow as it has 30 something bus stops but you'll definitely enjoy and love the beautiful scenes along the way.

Wow, your suggestions sounds great and helpful, I really appreciated it. It will definitely help us to maximize our time and provide us with the best of Hong Kong.

By the way can we see the Junk boat around both piers? also, how long will it take for us to reach Ngong Ping from Mui Wo Bus station?
We're going to go there on Friday, hope it will not be very crowded.

Re: 1 day trip to Ngong Ping and Disneyland
by: hk-insider don

Considering that you would be ready to go from your hotel at 7:30 or 8:00 am on that day, that would give you enough time to get into Disneyland (opens at 10:00 am) then to Ngong Ping in the afternoon then back to your hotel. But, if you prefer to go to Disneyland in the afternoon and stay until evening to see the "Disney in the Stars" Fireworks at 7:00pm then we'll start your journey towards Ngong Ping first.

This route is going to be a very scenic journey.

From Tsim Sha Tsui (TST), take the Star Ferry to the Central Ferry Pier (no.7), 8 minutes @ HK$2.5. Walk to the adjacent Pier (no.5) and take the Ferry to Mui Wo (Lantau Island), 50 minutes @ HK$13. Upon arrival at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, look for the nearby Mui Wo Bus Terminus. Take the bus NLB 2 that will bring you to the Ngong Ping bus Terminus (just right at the center of Ngong Ping attractions like the Giant Buddha and also, close to the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Terminal). Take your time in the must-see attractions and shopping in there till afternoon.

From Ngong Ping village, take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car to the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal, a spectacular 25 minutes sky rail ride @ HK$80. Upon arrival at Tung Chung, find the nearby Tung Chung MTR station. Take the Tung Chung Line trains and get off at next station, Sunny Bay station. Interchange trains to the Disneyland Resort Line trains to Disneyland station, Disneyland Entrance is just right there upon exit of MTR station. Total trains travel time is 18 minutes @ HK$11.6

Hope this will help you plan your trip ahead. Enjoy your stay in Hong Kong!

1 day trip to Ngong Ping and Disneyland

Hi, I'm planning to visit HK this March with quite pack schedule and we would like to wrap Ngong Ping and Disneyland in 1 day.

Our flight will arrive at 5.50 am and we are planning to directly drop our bags at the hotel at TST and go to Ngong Ping. It will be appreciated if we can have some suggestions. Thank you

To see the fireworks display in Hong Kong Disneyland is very doable in your 2 days stay in HK.

Disneyland Park hours is 10:00am - 7:00pm and 8:00pm on peak park day (like Sundays or any other special days), Feb 1 & 2 park schedule is not available yet and to be announced soon.

The "Disney in the Stars" Fireworks will start at the end of park's hours (usually starts at 7:00pm). This spectacular fireworks show transforms the sky above Sleeping Beauty Castle into a stunning evening spectacle for your spectacular and unforgettable Disney experience.

Do not worry about your location specially if it is somewhere in Kowloon, there's is always the MTR trains that is very efficient way of transport in HK.

For your furthere reference, here's a suggested itinerary for 2 whole days in hongkong and 1 day in macau that you can read in this page.

Re: How to get to Hong Kong Ngong Ping 360 from Tsim Sha Tsui?
by: HKinsider-Don

The most efficient and convenient way on how to get to Ngong Ping 360 from Tsim Sha Tsui area is by taking the MTR trains (38 minutes / HK$ 13.5).

Tsim Sha Tsui to Ngong Ping 360 route map


Look for nearest MTR station in your area (don't worry, you won't find it hard to see those MTR station signs as most areas have it).

Assuming that you're taking the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station, take the MTR Tsuen Wan Line going towards Tsuen Wan and get off at Lai King station - interchange trains to the MTR Tung Chung Line towards Tung Chung and get off to that last station. Take the Exit B and look for signs going to the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Terminal.

You can read more alternate routes in here in here if you want to go to Ngong Ping by not taking the cable car.


@ lil.angel

We suggest that you go first to Ngong Ping 360 as the must-see attractions in that place were best viewed at day time (you may follow the direction as already stated above on how to get there). And then head back to Victoria Peak late in the afternoon as it is a perfect place to see Hong Kong during early evening.

Please click here to read more on how to get to Victoria Peak.

Re: How to get to Victoria peak coming from Tsim Sha Tsui
by: HKinsider-don

Hi there, getting to Victoria peak coming from Tsim Sha Tsui area is quite easy and lot of fun. Take the Ferry route Tsim Sha Tsui to Central and then follow the direction already mentioned above on how to get to Victory peak upon arriving at Central pier. The whole journey will only take about 30 minutes.

Please take a look the interactive Hong Kong Star Ferry route map below. To navigate map, use the controls in the top left hand corner. Click the signs; (+) to zoom in and (-) to zoom out or move (<) left and (>) right or move (^) up and (v) down. You can also use your mouse by left clicking and then dragging in the direction of your choice.

Alternate routes:

1.) You can take the MTR trains from Tsim Sha Tsui station towards Central then take Central's MTR Station Exit J2, walk along Garden Road which is in between The Bank of China building and The Cheung Kong Centre. The walk to the tram station only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

2.) Or, Take MTR trains to Admiralty Station and take Exit B, find Lippo Centre Bus Terminus and take the bus 12S.

RE: baby and stroller in cable car?
by: Anonymous

YES, the floor of the platform is specially designed to level with that of the cabins. Strollers for babies or wheelchair bound passengers can easily go onboard. To provide further convenience to them, the seating bench in the cabin can be lifted up, creating ample room for them.

Also, for the visitors' convenience, there are luggage storage facilities for visitors arriving at Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal. There are about 20 lockers for rent. The size of each locker is 84cm (H), 40cm (W), 87cm (D) The rates are HK$20 for every three hours or HK$70 for one day. Please contact staff when you arrive at Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal for more details.

We are coming to Hong Kong in April with our 10-month old baby. Is Ngong Ping not too stressful for the baby? Are babies and strollers allowed in the cable car?

Appreciate your thoughts.

HK in a day
by: Mia

Hi, my friends and I are planning on taking a 3 day trip in March 12-14. We'll be arriving in HK at 9pm on the 11th. We're planning to have 1 day in Hong Kong, a day in Macau and another day in Shenzhen. I hope that would be possible to take all in. =)

Answer: Yes, it is very doable. Transportation between these cities are very efficient and will only takes about an hour or two.

I think, Macau and Shenzhen is ok to take in a day but I'm hoping you could help me in our Hong Kong plan. We will be staying in Tsim Sha Tsui. I would like to ask directions and fare costs for the following:
Tsim Sha Tsui to Victoria Peak, from there to Ngong Ping Village/360, then Giant Buddha, finally to Disneyland then back to Tsim Sha Tsui. We hope to ride the Star Ferry too. ^^

Answer: Going to Victoria Peak from Tsim Sha Tsui.
The Ferry Pier is located in East Tsim Sha Tsui, could be a walking distance from your hotel.

Get on board for an 8 minute Ferry ride to Central, Hong Kong Island(HK$2.20 - upper deck seat). Upon arriving at Central Pier, you can find a Bus station nearby, take Bus no. 15C (3.20 HK$) that will bring you to the Victoria Peak Tram station.

Get on the Peak Tram (HK$25 - single, HK$36 - return) that will bring you directly to the Peak.

I think we already stated above the directions in getting to Ngong Ping and Disneyland.


oh, and if you could also help us on the cheapest and quickest way to get a visa for shenzhen. =)

Answer: The best way to do is to get a China (Shenzhen) VISA from your country otherwise VISAS can be acquired in the china borders. Short stay VISA will cost only around HK$150.

Ngong Ping to Victoria Peak
by: Anonymous

Hi,
If you want to go straight to Victoria Peak from Ngong Ping 360, I would suggest you take the Ferry from Mui Wo, Lantau Island to Central Pier 5, Hong Kong island.

In Lantau island, just take a taxi to the ferry pier in Mui Wo. Here's the link to the complete ferry fare and schedule.

Upon arrival in Central pier, take the Bus no. 15C nearby to the Peak Tram that will bring you directly to the Peak.

how bout the other way around?

Recommended itinerary for 2 whole days in hongkong and 1 day in macau.
by: Dondon

Hello Ross,

Here's our recommended itinerary.

Day 1, Dec 6 (Disneyland, Ngong Ping, Avenue of Stars @ Victoria Harbour, and Symphony of Lights)

Morning (HKIA to Disneyland)

Get on Airport Express trains to Tsing Yi then Sunny Bay station and interchange MTR trains to Disneyland Resort Line towards Disneyland.

Alternate route:
A great way to reach Disneyland from the airport is to take any A or E Hong Kong Bus to the Lantau Link Toll Plaza, 13 mins - HK$ 21 then interchange bus to Route R8 for Hong Kong Disneyland (HK$7).

Spend at least 5 hours in Disneyland.

Late afternoon: (Disneyland to Ngong Ping 360 @ Tung Chung Sky Rail Terminal)

Get on MTR trains to Sunny Bay then to the next station Tung Chung.

Take the cable car - a 24 minutes stunning ride and unforgettable views of Hong Kong experience to Ngong Ping Village.

Spend at least an hour over there and then get back to Tung Chung.

Evening: (Ngong Ping 360 to Avenue of Stars @ Victoria Harbour (to watch the must-see Symphony of Lights).

Take the MTR trains to Lai King station then Tsim Sha Tsui station. Take a walk along the waterfront between the Avenue of Stars and the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

You can spend the whole evening in this area (before going to your hotel) where you can watch the Symphony of Lights (nightly show) that will start at 8:00 pm. I suggest you book your hotel somewhere in Tsim Sha Tsui area for an easy access.

Day 2, Dec 7 (Museums, Star Ferry, Peak Tram, and Victoria Peak)

Morning until afternoon:
Most of the popular Hong Kong Museums where also in Tsim Sha Tsui area and are close to each other. Please refer to our Hong Kong Museum page for complete details on how to get there with their respective schedules.

You can spend your time in any of those recommended museums until late afternoon as your next journey is the "Peak" and it is better to go up there and best viewed during sunset or early evening.

Afternoon: (From Tsim Sha Tsui to Victoria Peak)
Get on board of the Star Ferry then Bus no. 15C and then get on the Peak Tram that will bring you directly to the Peak.

It is only about 20 minutes travel from the Peak to Shun Tak Centre, the Hong-Macau Ferry Terminal.

Turbojet Ferry Schedule at Shuntak
Hong Kong to Macau
7:00 am - 11:59 pm

Day 3, Dec 8 Macau tourist attractions. Whole day!
