Hong Kong is a key aviation hub serviced by more than 100 airlines that connect the 24-hour Hong Kong International Airport to major cities throughout the world. It is the most visited places in the world (see here).
Travel from/to the airport
Hong Kong International Airport is located on Lantau Island. There are multiple connections from the airport to rest of the city.
The MTR’s high-speed Airport Express train takes approximately 24 minutes to reach Hong Kong Island. Airport Express passengers can catch a free shuttle bus from Kowloon and Hong Kong stations to major hotels. Both these stations also provide free in-town check-in services for major airlines for travellers returning to the airport.
Taxis are readily available from the taxi pick-up area in front of the airport’s Arrivals Hall. Taxi colours indicate their main destination: for travel to Hong Kong Island or Kowloon please use the red taxi; for travel to New Territories please use a green taxi; for travel around Lantau Island please use a blue taxi. All taxis in Hong Kong are able to take passengers to and from the airport. Fares are metered and detailed information about charges are clearly displayed inside each cab. Most taxi drivers in Hong Kong understand some English and Putonghua. Taxis do not accept credit card payments.
There are 12 convenient Airbus ‘A’ routes that take travellers from the airport to key locations on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and in the New Territories (including Lantau Island) with fewer stops than an ordinary city bus. City buses can be found at the exit the Arrivals Hall on the right.
Travel from to one of eight ferry ports in the Pearl River Delta is also available. Ferry tickets are sold at the Mainland/Macau Ticketing Counter located at Transfer Area E2 in Terminal 1. Passengers will then take the automated people mover to SkyPier to board one of the high-speed ferries.
Travel within Hong Kong
Hong Kong is internationally famous for its safe, affordable and reliable public transport system that keeps the city moving. The most common means of transport within the city is the MTR. Trains run every 3 to 6 minutes from 06:0 to 24:00. View a map of the MTR network here. Additional useful information regarding travel within Hong Kong can be found here.
Travel to the conference venue on Friday 14 September
Registration and all sessions on Friday will take place at the Yasamoto International Academic Park on the New Territories campus of CUHK.
Travel from the airport
Take a red taxi from the airport directly to CUHK. The fare for this 45-minute journey is around HK$300 (including surcharges for luggage and tunnel tolls).
Alternatively, take the Airport Express train to Tsing Yi Station. The fare for this 15-minute journey is around HK$60. From Tsing Yi Station, take a taxi to CUHK. The fare for this 25-minute ride is around HK$130.
Another possibility is to take the airport bus A41 to Shatin Central Bus Terminus (see timetable and fares here). The fare is payable in cash while boarding (exact fare only). Depending on traffic conditions the journey takes about 65-70 minutes. Please note that the Shatin Central Bus Terminus is not the terminal stop for the bus, so please ask the driver where to get off or pay attention to the broadcast on the bus. From Shatin Central Bus Terminus to CUHK either take a red taxi (15-minute journey costing around HK$60-80) or the MTR (not recommended if you have bulky luggage). The Shatin MTR station (blue line) can be reached via the New Town Plaza (a grand shopping mall) located a floor above the bus terminus, and is just a couple of stops away from University station. The fare is around HK$4 for a single ticket.

The recommended mode of travel is the MTR, as the venue is just next to the MTR station University on the blue line. At University follow Exit D to Station Road. Take Station Road (northbound) until Pond Crescent, turn left on Pond Crescent and then right to the main entrance of the Yasamoto building. The walk from University station to the venue should take around 5 minutes. See map here.
