Night Transportation to/from HK Airport

Hong Kong Airport is open 24 hrs, there’s flights arriving and departing at all time, but its’ a bit more difficult to get to the airport between 12am – 6am if you have a middle of the night flight.HK Airport Night

The most obvious way is to take a taxi, but not even can or wants to pay for that. Public transportation generally runs only from 6am – 12am, but there are some nighttime services.

Train out of the question as services stop around 12 – 1am. The last airport express airport-bound is at 00:48 from Hong Kong Station.

Bus is probably the best bet since it runs overnight, albeit at reduced frequencies and routings. You can find a list of night bus routes here. They’re run by Citybus and Longwin.

Fares are actually very cheap for the overnight buses also, about $20-30 depending on where you’re starting, mainly because they’re considered locals and make more stops than the usual airport buses. But since there’s no traffic at night, the ride shouldn’t take particularly long.

    Public as well as private transport services in Hong Kong are quite reliable. Last I visited, the fares were also quite reasonable. You might have to wait for at most an hour to be able to commute from the airport when you arrive at odd hours past midnight.
