From Airport To Tsim Sha Tsui

The cheapest way to go to Tsim Sha Tsui from Hongkong's international airport is to ride their public bus. If you get lost going around the airport looking for it, always ask. That is the best solution. Do not mistake the hotel shuttle bus with the public airbus. The public airbus is outside.

If you prefer the fastest route, then the airport express (train) is fastest taking around 15 minutes from airport to the city (no idea where it will stop since we never took it. Plus it is very expensive too costing around 138HKD.

Oh yeah, the airbus means airport bus (i thought it was some sci-fi name for a bus that flies on air ;)) and you have to look for bus number A21. You can either buy 1 way tickets or use your Octopus card. Either way, the trip costs 33HKD.

If you are going to stay in Mirador Mansion like we did, be sure to tell the driver to inform you if it is the 13th stop because that is where you will stop. My friend told me that the driver will announce it but when I asked the driver, he said he does not announce but he did offer to inform us if the bus will reach the 13th stop. That was very kind of him. If you won't hear any announcement in a few stops, go to the driver and inform him to let you know.

One more thing, once you swipe your Octopus card when you go in, you do not need to swipe it again when you go out of the bus like in Singapore.
