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
