Airport Express Tourist Octopus vs MTR 1 day pass


We arrive at airport around 18:00 on Sunday night, returning to the Airport around 21:00 the following Friday. We are staying at the Langham Place Hotel, Mongkok.

I am therefore uncertain as to whether I should purchase an Airport Express 3 day Tourist Octopus HKD300 and then additional MTR 1 day passes at HKD50 per day or

whether we should buy a Round Trip ticket for oor travel to and from airport, which I think costs HKD160 and the 5 day passes.

Can anyone help?

Either 3-day Tourist Octopus or Round Trip tickets plus a usual Octopus card are good. Top up the Tourist Octopus or usual Octopus for HK$100-200 per person when you get the cards, you'll need these credit on cards to take bus, ferry, trams etc. You can further top up at MTR stations or convienence stores.

I wouldn't suggest you buy 1-day MTR pass unless you know you are going to use MTR for more than HK$50 in a particular day.
