The Airport Express will get you to Central Station in just 24 minutes. To find out more about the airlines that service Hong Kong International Airport, see our airline guide.
A true 24/7 metropolis, Hong Kong is non-stop from dusk 'til dawn. Hong Kong Island is the main part of the SAR with Kowloon Peninsula, New Territories, Lantau Island and the Outlying Islands all part of the greater Hong Kong. There's a mishmash of East meets West, traditions and ultra-modern ways and soaring skyscrapers and surprising pockets of nature that will keep you enthralled.
The first place you should hit up on your Hong Kong holiday should be Victoria Peak for a panoramic view of the harbour and CBD. Take the Peak train up the steep incline then hike down the trails from the top. For cheap thrills, you can't beat the iconic Star Ferry crossing between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Take a tour to see the traditional side of Hong Kong, do a foodie trail or jump on a junk for more quintessential HK experiences.
