getting around KK

Hi, we are arriving at around 2am in KK. I've heard that taxis dont use meters to get anywhere and we have to haggle for a trip. Does Uber or Grab work in KK? Are they legal in KK?

Would anyone suggest we use Uber or Grab from the airport to the hotel and viceversa?

Hi there!

Yes, i suggest using Uber/Grab as they are much cheaper and very reliable. Same fare applicable during Day/Night, except for high demand hours.

ETA 2AM!!! i wont be bother to seach for grab or uber. I will just go to taxi counter at the arrival hall, grab a taxi and get myself out from airport head straight to hotel.

Imagine you just landed after going thru immigration n luggage, you will have to look out forbyiur grab and uber especially your are not familiar with the local car registration

Thats just being me.
