I am flying into Hong Kong on Tuesday 1 January for a 1 night stop-over. I arrive at 5.00pm local time, and have a room booked at Sa Po Road in Kowloon. The hotel does offer a 2 way shuttle service. Are there alternative modes of transportation, that are both reliable and not too expensive? In the evening I want to watch a soccer match at Delaneys bar in Wanchai. This will finish at 01.00pm on Wednesday. Advice on how best to get to hotel from there at this hour of the night would be very much appreciated. Is a taxi the only means given the late hour? If yes, what fare should I expect to pay for the journey? Is it possible to ask the driver at the outset what the likely fare will be?

On my way back, I arrive in Hong Kong at 06.00am on 1 February. This time I am staying at a hotel on the east side of the island, near Quarry Bay Station. Again, what options are there, that are not too expensive, to get from the airport to the hotel? LIkewise, the following morning, when I have to be at the airport for 06.00am for an 09.00am departure?

I have done a bit of homework already on potential tourist attractions while there. Would appreciate feed-back from those who know Hong Kong, as to what might be achievable given the short time that I will be visiting there.

Many thanks in advance for any contributions that are made. I am looking forward to my visit. Next time, please God there will be a next time, I plan to stay longer so that I can get a much better feel for the many splendours that there are in Hong Kong.

Thank you
