Transportation:
 

From the Hong Kong International Airport to The Hotel:

Taxi is the easiest means of transport from the airport to the the hotel. Take a RED taxi (don't take Green or Blue-coloured taxi, as they are restricted to travel in the New Territories and Lantau Island respectively)  at the designated taxi stand of the airport directly to HKUST; the cost is approximately HK$300 (US$38.5), and the travel time is about 40 minutes.

Please note that the taxi driver will  punch in the toll charges onto the meter and show you the exact total amount you need to pay. Tipping is not customary, you only need to round up to the next dollar. Taxis typically do not accept credit cards, so please have HK dollars in cash available. please collect a receipt from the taxi driver.

Taxi drivers in Hong Kong may not communicate well in English. You might need to print this Taxi Driver Instructions (written in Chinese), and show it to the taxi driver after boarding.

A taxi from the University campus to Kowloon/Hong Kong costs HK$150-200 (approximately US$20-25). The nearest subway stations to the University are found at Hang Hau and Choi Hung.
