Getting Around Hong Kong


INTA Shuttle

INTA will not provide daily shuttle service to or from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) during the Annual Meeting.

INTA will have return shuttle service from the HKCEC to select hotels after the Welcome Reception on May 11 and will provide round-trip shuttle service to hotels on Wednesday, May 14, for the Grand Finale at Hong Kong Disneyland.


Public Transportation Options

The city claims one of the world's safest, most efficient and frequently used public transportation systems. The Hong Kong Tourism Board website is a great resource to learn more about public transportation options.


Airport Express

The Airport Express is highly recommended for your trip to and from the airport. This express train is the fastest and most affordable option from the airport running about US $40 (HK $300) and taking about 30 minutes to Hong Kong Island.

Individual and Group Private Airport Transfers


Mass Transit Railway (MTR)

For your convenience, you may purchase a Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Tourist Day Pass which allows unlimited travel on the MTR and the Light Rail while registering for the meeting. Tickets cost US $7.10 per ticket (HK $55), per day. The Wan Chai station on the MTR is less than a 10-minute walk from the HKCEC. MTR tickets do not include bus or ferry service.

If you purchased MTR tickets during online registration before April 25, you will be able to pick up your tickets at the HKCEC when INTA registration opens on Saturday, May 10, at 2:00 pm.  Additional MTR tickets will not be sold at the HKCEC, but you may purchase MTR tickets at any MTR station.  Please visit the MTR website for more information about local transportation and ticket options.


Ferries


A fun way to hop between islands and a great way to see and experience Hong Kong. Numerous ferry routes connect Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the Outlying Islands. Learn more about taking the Star Ferry from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and back or exploring other ferry options.


Octopus Card


The Octopus Card is another option for getting around the city. You can store value on this smart card and then use it for most public transport, as well as purchases in convenience stores, fast food shops, supermarkets, cake shops, vending machines and more. Simply place the Octopus card over a reader and the correct amount will be automatically deducted from the stored value. You can purchase this card at any MTR station.


Taxi

Taxis are plentiful in the city and can easily be hailed on the street or summoned by phone. All rides are metered, relatively cheap, air-conditioned and clean. Taxis in Hong Kong are categorized by three colors, each indicating a geographical area. All taxis can travel to and from Hong Kong International Airport, as well as Hong Kong Disneyland. Red taxis operate throughout most of Hong Kong, except for Tung Chung Road on Lantau Island and on the entire south side of Lantau Island. Green taxis only service the New Territories. Blue taxis only operate on Lantau Island.

Tips for a hassle free taxi trip.

  • Taxis are usually easily hailed along the street, although they can’t pick up or drop off passengers in certain restricted zones. It’s often a good choice to opt for either a taxi queue at a hotel or a taxi stand.
  • Drivers are required to use the taximeter and passengers are required to pay the exact fare as recorded by the taximeter
  • Always ask for a machine-printed receipt. If the machine is not functioning, the taxi driver is obliged to provide a hand-written receipt.
  • All taxis are regulated and taxi drivers are required to display their taxi driver identity cards on their dashboards.

Walking Around the City

The above ground tunnels system can be an easy way to traverse the city. Note that most buildings are given a name in addition to their street address, which is very helpful when using the tunnel system as most exits list the building name.
