The HKIMR/HKUST Summer
Workshop on Macroeconomics and International Finance
July 2-3, 2013
the Hong Kong International Airport to HKUST:
1. By Taxi
Taxi is the easiest means
of transport from the airport to the University. 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 45 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. In
order to be reimbursed, 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.
2. By Airport Express,
MTR, Public Bus
There are other means of
transportation from the airport to the University. They are less expensive,
but less convenient and more time consuming.
