Hong Kong MTR Tickets & Fares

Regular Tickets:


 Octopus Card

 Single Journey Ticket
Apart from Octopus Card, passengers can use Single Journey Tickets to take the Hong Kong MTR. The fare is based on the distance traveled. There are two types of Single Journey Tickets – Adult and Concessionary, which you can purchase from the Ticket Issuing Machines in all MTR stations. Concessionary Tickets are for children aged 3 to 11 and senior citizens aged 65 or above. Students aged 12 and above traveling with Single Journey Tickets are required to pay full adult fare. To enjoy concessionary fares, students must travel by Personalised Octopus Card with "Student Status".
Tsim Sha Tsui and East Tsui Sha Tsui are two separate stations and have separate entry and exit gates. Passengers using Single Journey Tickets change Lines here need to purchase two separate tickets. The first ticket is collected upon exit at the first station while another one should be bought at the second station for the next journey. Alternatively, passengers may choose a different route to your destination by interchanging at Kowloon Tong, Mei Foo and Nam Cheong stations where only one Single Journey Ticket is required. Fares for journeys using two Single Journey Tickets are higher than those using only one Single Journey Ticket.

From your hotel, you can easily find the metro station Tsim Sha Tsui. From TST, you can take Tsuen Wan Line to Lai King, and then change to Tung Chung Line to reach Sunny Bay. Change to Sunny Bay to take the Disneyland Resort Line to reach the Disneyland.

1. As I know, 5C is a bus.
2. Take Tung Chung Line from Kowloon Station to HK Station. The duration is 15min. It costs 10HKD per person. Then take a ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui - Central Pier to Star Ferry Pier directly. It takes around 10mins with the fare of 2.7HKD per person.
3. Yes, you can use Octopus Card.
4. From the pier to HKIA, you don't need to take bus no.A22 or 1A. Just take bus no.A20 from Silvercord to the airport T1 directly. It costs 33HKD per person. The duration is 75mins.

There is no direct bus. You need to take bus no.23 from Ngong Ping to Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal. Then take Tung Chung Line to Nam Cheong and transfer to (West Rail Line to Hung Hom.
The total fare is 37.9HKD per person. The duration is about 105mins.

Hello, I checked on Google maps of the direction you've mentioned and it's taking me at least 2 hr. and 41 min (almost 3 hr) not 105mins. Not sure what I am doing wrong. By bus it's same amount of time, but less walking. So if I take bus 23 to bus E23 to bus 11 using Octopus card, will it be still 37.9HKd? Thank you.

Sorry, I cannot find the bus route No.23 - No.E23 - No.11 on the map.
You can go to there by the following way:
Take bus no.23 from Ngong Ping to Tung Chung Fire Station. Then take bus no.E32 to LANTAU LINK TOLL PLAZA. Transfer to bus no.A22 to Wylie Road, Gascoigne Road. The whole way takes around 105 mins. The ticket fare is 54 HKD per person. After arriving, walk southeast around 400 meters to find the destination.
