Airport Express



Taxis can take you to anywhere to and from the airport and are categorized by 3 colors: red, green and blue. Each color indicates their operating areas: red taxis serve throughout most of Hong Kong, except for Tung Chung Road on Lantau Island and the entire south side of Lantau Island; green taxis operate only in the New Territories and specific roads in Lantau; blue taxis only serve all destinations in Lantau and the airport.


Another means of payments commonly accepted in Hong Kong is credit cards (e.g. American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard, and Visa). There are many automatic teller machines in Hong Kong, and they are reliable and safe. They offer a wide range of services. To draw money from a Hong Kong ATM with either a credit or a debit card, you must have your personal identification number (PIN). So please make sure you have your PIN before traveling to Hong Kong. Exchange stores charge a handling fee for exchanging money and cashing traveler's cheques.

You can exchange Hong Kong dollars at the airport, hotels, banks, and other exchange stores. However, banks may provide you with more competitive rates. You may wish to have local currency exchanged before you leave your city to avoid lines at the airport exchange booths.
