Travel Tips

From Airport to CUHK Campus

1. Taking the taxi

One simple and fast but somewhat expensive way to get to CUHK is to take a taxi from the airport. Take a green-colored cab, not a red-colored one: those are cheaper. The ride to CUHK campus costs around HK$350. Be sure to use the addresses in Chinese given below to advise the driver where you want to go.

2. Taking the MTR

You can take the MTR at the airport (i.e. Airport Station) and travel to the University Station. This costs about HKD60 and takes about 65 minutes. Exit at Exit B to walk toward the right to the conference venue at Cheng Yu Tung Building.

Octopus Card Service

If you want to be more adventurous in Hong Kong, it is recommended that you buy an Octopus Card for your own convenience. It can be used in most of the transportation, including buses, MTR, ferry, and some of the minibuses; it can also be used in most of the vending machines, convenient stores, and fast food shops. Octopus cards can be bought at the Customer Service Centres in the Airport Express Line and in all MTR stations. Ticket price for adults is HK$150 (with HK$50 of deposit which is refundable, and HK$100 of stored value). Some modes of transport give a slight discount to Octopus card users and having the card prevents you from worrying about always needing exact change. It is very easy to use: simply swipe your card over the octopus machine, the fare will be automatically deducted, and its deducted values and remaining value will be shown on the screen of the machine.
