Metro and taxis in Hong Kong

We called the taxi, but take – if possible – public  transport! Hong Kong has an extensiveand well-functioning subway  system that takes you anywhere without being stopped intraffic and late  for appointments appear. Taxis are particularly suitable  for shortdistances outside peak  hours. The rates are relatively low. But try on a rainy Friday  night to find you a taxi from Causeway Bay to Kowloon (mainland) brings. I  have heldten and have ten times zero on the petition received (and  am in the meantime, another incredibly wet rain). Had I known earlier, I  would have – as I later would recommend Coco – the subway and I  was taken in less than ten minutes on  the mainland have. Thesubway is a number of transport and the taxi is  suitable for distances of the last metro station to the destination to  go.

From the airport to downtown Hong Kong

The journey from the airport to downtown Hong Kong is about 20 to 30 minutes. You can choose from different modes of transport: train, bus or taxi. Keep in mind that Hong Kong may be one of the best organized cities in the world. Even the most inexperienced tourists will easily find your way.

Which vehicle you choose depends mainly on your budget. I chose the most expensiveway, the taxi. In hindsight it was a rather unfortunate choice. Not only was most likely the slowest way to get to downtown, the taxi driver tried to even a higher amount thanthe usual fare from dragging. Fortunately I had learned from the information that the ride from the airport to Causeway Bay 320 cost Hong Kong Dollars (at current exchange rate is approximately 32 euros).

The taxi driver wanted 450 Hong Kong dollars terms but refused to when I decided to pay that amount, he turned his steps.

For the way I chose the train. This is very easy. You check your already in the station in central Hong Kong for your flight, you will check in luggage and then you go wherever you want. When you’re ready to go to the airport, go down and the train brings you in 20 minutes at their destination.

Massage Hong Kong island

On Hong Kong island there are not as much massage parlours as in Kowloon. So it could be a challenge to get a massage quickly when you need one. Especially in the evening and night time. You could try a massage in the comfort of your own hotel room this is probably even more quickly then go outside and look for a parlor and the prices are not even that expensive. So just try a hotel massage outcall service. There are a lot, the better ones you can find on this website.


Hotel Hong Kong

Finding a suitable hotel in Hong Kong is easy, since there are various hotels for all tastes and needs. Although, I must say that there are some of the most modern and spectacular hotels in the world.
