Walking directions for Google maps says yes, it's possible: https://goo.gl/maps/MVoPY 57 min, 4.6 km from Airport station to the center of Tung Chung. Now I haven't tried this myself, and walking directions remain officially in beta... but a random Street View sampling indicates that the suggested route does have pedestrian walkways of some kind, including ...

Hong Kong airport is on an island. There is nothing else on that islands except an exhibition center and related activities (ferry terminal, hotel, …). In order to go anywhere interesting, you need to cross to the neighboring island of Lantau, Tung Chung being the first neighborhood when going from the airport to anywhere overland. While I think there is a ...

Obviously "best" is always subjective and depends on the particular person, but... Having done 1-day stopover trips in Hong Kong a few times over the past few years (including a 22 hour stopover there 2 weeks ago!), my vote would be for the area on one side or other of Victoria Harbour - either the Kowloon/Nathan road area on the north side, or Causeway ...

While I never tried to bring alcohol to Australia from Hong Kong personally, there are plenty of reports saying it's not possible. I have never seen the required duty-free sealed packages in Hong Kong on the airport. Both this report from 2012 and this one here from last year say that it's impossible. Also this here from August this year confirms that. I ...

You can do so at the MTR service counters, but you will get the money back immediately only if there is less than 500 HKD on the card and the card is not damaged. There are several such service counters at the airport: At the airport, the Customer Service Centres can be found in the "buffer halls", after baggage reclaim and before entering the arrival ...

When you arrive with the airport express you will be in an underground station 2 floors below the IFC Mall. There will be two exits: The one on the same level to a taxi station. The other one will be an escalator leading up to the airport express check-in on ground level. Go up the escalator 2 floors. There will be the check-in counter on one side of the ...

There isn't a free public shuttle bus service to/from the airport. (There are, of course, normal paid public buses that serve HKIA.) What I think your relative may have gotten it confused with is complimentary hotel bus services that are reserved for guests. I'd recommend taking the HKIA Express though. It's a lot cheaper ($100) than getting a taxi and a ...

Looks like the restricted area is restricted for the passengers only, so you will be in this area basically. The non-restricted are is where anyone can come from the city, and which is before border control and security checks (from the perspective of people arriving from the city). You can assume that you will not get to this area (unless you want to go ...

'Restricted area' are the shops near the departure gates, and if you stay within that area then you don't need to go through passport control. However, if you want to go into the non-restricted area then you will have to go through passport control. Hong Kong has fairly open rules for most nationalities and your get the visa as a stamp on-arrival (if you ...

I've done this. There are clear signs at the station, as soon as you get off the train, directing you towards the shuttle buses. Just look for and follow the signs.

I have a 4 hour stopover Which is not enough time to do much outside any major airport, especially on foot. Assuming the 4 hours is arrival to departure time, consider the following: get off airplane walk to immigration, wait in line walk to airport door. We are now at 30 minutes, more likely 60 leave airport property You have already checked in ...

Nothing to add to Gilles informative answer - it's fantastic information that there is a footbridge (but for the OP's question, a four hour stopover does appear to be too short). However, if you're staying at one of the the two airport hotels, such as the SkyCity Marriott, here's what would be a terrific "urban jog" which is a 10k, making the Novotel on the ...

Turbojet has a ferry almost every hour, all night from Macau to Hong Kong Ferry Terminal. From there you can take a short taxi ride (you could also walk but it's a bit far) to the Airport Express station and the train to the Airport. It will make your trip about an hour longer than going directly to the airport via ferry, but it sure beats staying at the ...

Google will find the opening hours and tell you that it closes at 6.30pm At other times the trip is possible in that amount of time, but busyness depends on time and season. You can reach the monastery and the Big Buddha without going up the cable car, but I don't know how long it takes to drive there.

Since the Hong Kong MTR connects to the airport on the Express line, there's an MTR office at the airport, before you head to security check / departure. You can get your card refunded there.

I did the trip and I can confirm that with 2 hours you don't have time to go out of the restricted area (with the time I had, 3h 30m it's possible but not recommended). I arrived at Gate 2 and my departure was from Gate 47, it's a long walk and you need to pass another security check. More or less you spend 1h 30m to do so. If you get out and you need to do ...

This is what I ended up doing: I took the 3am ferry from Macau to Hong Kong Island. Outside the ferry terminal I caught the N11 bus directly to the airport. It took about one hour and cost 31 HK$ (4 USD). It runs every 30 minutes, I took the 4:20am one. I was a bit concerned that 20 minutes may not be enough time to get from the ferry through ...

As I just found out to my dismay at the airport, Australia-bound passengers are unable to buy, although there doesn't seem to be any liquids/security re-screening at the gate. The duty free cashiers told me I would have to buy on arrival. I have just looked up the price and it seems to be 30% higher at Melbourne airport duty free. Feel like I've been ...

It won't be possible. The roads near the airport are very complex and there are plenty of junctions. It's very hard to navigate between them. There is a sidewalk at Chek Lap Kok South Road but no one uses it because it is too far away. it takes more than 1.5 hours to walk from CLK to Tung Chung. Taking a bus only takes around 10-15 minutes.
