How to get to Kowloon City in Hong Kong

Being centrally located within Hong Kong it is each to reach the town and anywhere

From the International Airport

When arriving at the Hong Kong International Airport at Chep Lap Kok destined for the Kowloon City district the best means of transport by far is the express CityFlyer bus run by the NewWorld First Bus line.  With several routes of air-conditioned coaches into the city to choose from it is fast and affordable with amply luggage capacity.

The route that goes into Kowloon City is "A22" and runs every 20 to 15 minutes depending on the time of day.  The bus fee is HK$39 per adult with no extra charge for luggage.

From Causeway Bay

Although across Victoria Harbour the districts of Causeway Bay and Kowloon City are in fact quite close, not just geographically, but also in style being mixed commercial and residential, and with a strong focus on dining.  However with the lower rents in our district you will see much more in the way of affordable choices, so a quick trip for those shopping in CWB over to Kowloon City for an authentic dining experience might be just the thing to finish of a hard day of window shopping.

There are some great transport choices but one of the easiest will be to take the public bus.  Get on the NWFB #116 either outside the Hong Kong Central Library, at Yee Woo Street next to Times Square, or underneath the flyover at Canal Road.  Then after that it goes through the Cross Harbour Tunnel and surfaces in east Tsim Sha Tsui, then after eight more stops it reaches Prince Edward Road. Get off the bus here outside the Regal Oriental Hotel. 

Although this area seems very quiet it is just down a side street, take either Lung Kong Road or South Wall Road which are at each side of the hotel to go north two blocks and you are at the edge of the park.  Turn left and walk with the park on your right hand side along until you reach a gate.  The first part of the park you reach is made over to public sports facilities such as basketball courts, and the BMX cycling track. Take the gate just before the Carpenter Road Park "B" power substation. to enter the park proper.

From North Point

While everybody knows about the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour there is another just as interesting route which connects North Point on the easterly side of Hong Kong Island's north shore with Kowloon City.  Operated by FirstFerry, a sister company to the NWFB which runs the busses, this modern fast ferry service leaves the North Point Ferry Pier and crosses to the closests part of Kowllon which is the Kowllon City Ferry Pier, but actually located in Ma Tau Kok.

it is actually some distance from the ferry pier to the Walled City Park and the other interesting sights of the district, about half an hours walk but including some interesting streets. Consider stopping off at the Cattle Depot Artists Village for example which is along the way.

 

From Tsim Sha Tsui

Being also on the Kowloon peninsular the distance from Tsim Sha Tsui to Kowloon City is short, in deed the edges of the districts adjoin. But for those more common trips from the center of  TST, such as on Nathan Road or near the Star Ferry, from there to Kowloon City Walled Park can take 20 minutes by taxi or longer by bus.

The "1A" bus is a good choice, operated by the Kowloon Motor Bus or KMB company it operates busses from the Star Ferry pier that go north along Nathan Road then turn Eastwards on Boundary Street before joining Prince Edward Road and stopping outside the Regal Oriental Hotel.

Costing just HK$6.90 per adult this is a very economical way to go from TST to the Kowloon City, whether you are visiting the Walled City Park or just browsing the area for some great local food.

Alternatively given how close it is a Taxi is also a good option and can take you directly to the destination you desire.  If you don't have a place in mind and just want to browse then ask for the Kowloon City Plaza, a shopping complex on the corner of the park with good facilities and access to the rest of the district.
