Hi there
We are stopping in HK to give the kids a break on a long haul 20+ hour flight to Australia.
I wonder if anyone can advise us on where to stay - we are a family of 5 and wish to arrive lunchtime from the airport and then i thought we could go to Ocean Park the next day. Our flight out is only at 23h00 and I need to know how we would get from the airport to the accommodation, the accommodation to Ocean park, and what we would do with our luggage during that time. The accommodation does not have to be top notch since we will basically be resting there.
We travel in June. Any ideas/ suggestions would be appreciated.
TIA
A
ETA: 2 days one night (I forgot to say!)

Thank you, we have gone for a hotel close to the airport so that we can leave our luggage there for the day (this one has a late check out). I would just like to know the best way to get to Ocean Park from the airport then?

Hi , I am from Hong Kong!! Welcome to Hong Kong!~^__^

It seems you book your hotel nearby the airport? ( therefore , I skip the part of hotel suggestions~^__^)

If you stay nearby the airport , Ocean Park is a little faw away....( disney will be better it takes around 10 mins to go from Marriott by MTR..)

Hereunder is the details from airport to Ocean Park by public transfer:

1 / Take MTR - Central line from Airport or Tung Chung Station to Admiralty. - 45 mins
2 / Walk to Exit B ( Lippo center) , you can see a big bus stop (stations!?) there.
3 / Find the bus #629 which is directly to go Ocean Park - 40 mins.

it takes around an hour to go there , and you may aware HK is always traffic jam...
I am not sure will you go Ocean Park on weekdays,
but... try your best to avoid take any transfer at 8-9am and 6pm...
its really crazy here>__<
