Transportation from Hong Kong International Airport

There are mainly two means of transportation from Hong Kong International Airport, besides taxis: 1) Airport Express, the fast train from the airport to Central; 2) airport buses

The 1) option is expensive and serves only very limited areas. It is rarely the choice of local Hong Kongers.  The airport buses with extensive connection to all corners of Hong Kong, with much cheaper fare, are  the preferred choice.

The main airport bus routes start with A. Airport bus No. A11, for instance, goes to Central, Admiralty, Wanchai,  Causeway Bay and North Point. Airport bus No. A21 goes through Tsim Sha Tsui, Jordan, Yau Ma Tei and Mongkok. All these tourist areas are well served by airport buses.  Fares range between HK$30-40. Bus service is every 10-20 minutes.

My friends and I will be coming to HK on 13 Nov. We intend to travel from airport to our hotel in Mongkok by public bus A21.

In view of the current protest in HK, we understand that Mongkok is occupied by the protestors. Please advise us whether bus A21 is in operation and does it still travel along the normal designated route. If not, which is the best way to travel to Mongkok from the airport.

Hope to hear from you soon.
