The area
Neighborhood: Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
How to get there
  • Hong Kong • 1 min walk
  • Central • 5 min walk

Typically hotels will offer a shuttle bus service to the airport, for about $100HKD per person, but since the pandemic, this service is currently not offered. However, taking the airport train from Hong Kong Station is your next best option - this is the best way to get to the airport without having to fork out for a taxi ride.

You can buy a one off return or one way ticket to get to the airport via the MTR website, you'll be sent a QR code to scan, and it's valid for a few months from the day of purchase.

Prior to the pandemic happening, you could also do an early check-in and leave your luggage here and the airline would arrange for your luggage to get to the airport ahead of you. However, this service has also been temporarily suspended.

The station is just below IFC mall, and there are multiple ways points, via lifts and escalators to get down to the station. It's kept super clean and the train will tell you how far you've got to go to reach the airport.

When you get to the airport, there's no additional transport to take. It's honestly one of the most efficient ways to get there, and no traffic headaches!

Hong Kong Station is an important transportation hub within the MTR metro system in Hong Kong. It is located in Central District. There are two MTR lines that pass directly through the station, including the Tung Chung (orange line) and Airport Express which links Hong Kong Island to HKG airport on Lantau Island (24 minutes).

You can also transfer by foot through underground connections to Central MTR Station where you find important Tsuen Wan (red) and Island (blue) lines providing further MTR connection within Hong Kong and the Kowloon Peninsula. There is also bus terminus and ferry terminal to Macau nearby and it is easy to pickup taxi service just outside the station.

Within the station there is Airport Express check-in service for outbound flights from HKG. There are also a few retail shops, eateries and access to the IFC shopping mall which is attached and above the station.

The station is well set out and easy to locate most things. We used the station coming and and out of HK and found it very straight forward and very customer friendly. We only came unstuck when we used the station using the MTR as there are several exits and we got slightly lost with the hustle and bustle of it all.

Hong Kong Station is not a tourist destination per se but is a place that many visitors to Hong Kong will find themselves at some stage of their trip to Hong Kong.

For those arriving from the airport, you can take the Convenient Airport Express rail service which arrives at Hong Kong Station in 24 minutes. This is by far the quickest way into the Central District. There is also complimentary Airport Express Shuttle Bus service to many hotels on HK Island from Hong Kong Station.

At Hong Kong Station, you can also find in-town check service for outbound flight from Hong Kong International Airport. This service is available for most airlines departing from HKG and you can use the service anytime between 90 minutes to 24 hours prior to your scheduled departure. Left Luggage facilities are also available at Hong Kong Station as well.

Hong Kong Station is also the location of an MTR interchange for onward travel on Hong Kong Island. In addition to the important Airport Express line, you can also use the Island (Blue) and the Tsuen Wan (Red) lines as well as the Tung Chung (Orange) line which, most notably, provides expedient service to Disneyland on Lantau Island. Disneyland tickets can also be purchased here.

You can also find a convenient Exchange Square bus terminus just outside Hong Kong Station for those needing onwards transportation. Lastly visitors will find ATM facilities, free wifi, access to the very good IFC shopping mall as well as plenty of coffee shops, fast food and sit down restaurants in and in the immediate vicinity of Hong Kong Station.

Easy to find and easy to use if you want to get on the airport express train ! But don't just visit this 'attraction' - there is nothing to see , nothing to do , beside taking the train !!!

Nice MTR station. Clean and well maintained. This MTR metro station is the eastern terminus of the Tung Chung Line and Airport Express. It is connected to Central Station by a pedestrian subway. There is option for check-in service for flights departing Hong Kong International Airport. You will find free shuttle bus services to most major hotels nearby.

Huge transportation hub on the island of Hong Kong. The airport train pulls in to this terminal at which point you can change for the free bus to or close to your hotel. The subway system also has a station here. This area is called Central. The complex as you would imagine is filled with shops, restaurants and coffee shops and anything else related to travel, like ticket counters, tour operators, rental cars and much more.

We used this station to get to the airport express rail. You can check in for your flight from here and drop off your luggages so that you can still roam a bit more before your flight as long as your flight is at least 90 minutes out.

One may not think a train station is all that special, but this one is! Make a Starbucks stop here on your way to the airport, check in at the station (the United reps were SO KIND!), and they will tell you when to catch the last train to make sure you get to your flight on time, and where to go to catch the train to the airport. You can even check your luggage here, which we didn't have to do, but if we had it would have been very convenient. I recommend it!
