Taxis offer a door to door service to and from Hong Kong International Airport. Arriving passengers can catch a taxi at the Taxi Station, located near the left-hand ramp outside the Arrivals Hall.

At the Arrivals Hall, beware of the people offering “you want taxi?”, before you can blink, they will be carting your bag and taking you to their “taxis” which are nothing more than overpriced private car services you can expect to pay 3 to 4 times more for. If confronted by one of these, just firmly say no and continue to the official taxi stand.

Hong Kong taxis are colour-coded according to their operating areas. Separate rows are designated for different taxi types:

  • Urban taxis (red) operate in most areas in Hong Kong (except partial of Tung Chung Road and roads in south Lantau).
  • New Territories taxis (green) mainly operate in the north-eastern part (i.e. north of Sha Tin) and north-western part (i.e. north of Tsuen Wan) of the New Territories.
  • Lantau taxis (blue) operate only on Lantau Island and Chek Lap Kok.
  • All taxis are allowed to provide services at the passenger terminals of Hong Kong International Airport

Below table will shows you the approximate for the ride charges. The rate maybe fluctuate which follow the traffic conditions.

If there are 3-4 people in your group, consider a taxi as an alternative to the Airport Express or the Airport Shuttle buses (below). Even with a promotional Group fare for the Express, a taxi might be a better option since you bypass the extra step of having to get to/from the Airport Express station.There is a separate charge per piece of luggage of HK 5 which is not always enforced.
