City flyer A21
 
for those of you like myself who booked an apartment in Mongkok area, bus A21 from airport is your cheapest and easiest mode of transport. its half the price of airport express, and stop at grand plaza, which essentially provides you easy access to anywhere in Mongkok.

I have searched up and down for this info prior to my trip, and now as i have personally experienced this and return to singapore, i hope this info can help more people .

Ya A21 is not bad actually. Surprisingly quite fast. I think more convenient than using airport express.

I always take the airport buses unless I am really pressed for time, or when I need airport express' city check-in

The price factor is good. It's about half of airport express train. Which draws me especially Travelling in a group of 4, and uber is consider illegal in Hong Kong as per my Hong Kong acquitance

i suggest waiting for a new bus to arrive so you are the 1st to board and get the front seat on the upper deck.

i love the view that the bus ride provides from the airport to CKM.

one thing i dislike the a21 bus is that you have to get ready exact change

so for a first-timer who go HK , the driver do not accept big notes

That's why getting an octopus card is highly recommended. It's the same with taking bus at changi airport.

Bear in mind unlike here, octopus cards deactivate after 1000 days from last use/top up. After that can be reactivated. Very useful if subsequent to hk is sometime after.

Alternatively get a tourist card.

Since it can be used at conconvience shop, supermarkets, trams in hk island, star ferry, buses, mtr etc it's very useful.

Took it before, depends on traffic situation. As it travels almost the entire length of Nathan road before turning to Salisbury road. Nathan road is a major road which is very busy. During peak periods can take very long.

If hotel is near Jordan road eg prudential hotel or shamrock hotel, can take a22 which travels near Olympic city before turning into Jordan road. There's less stops and thus much faster than a21.

Definitely sufficient if you board at Mongkok.
