While city planners did a pretty darn good job figuring out efficient transports from Hong Kong International Airport, we think the masterminds behind The Peninsula Hong Kong's exclusive transportation options are simply brilliant. Consider the fleet of 14 Rolls-Royce Phantoms — these world-class automobiles can be ordered to pick up and deliver you to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel in barely no time at all. The autos have undergone modifications to provide a comfortable and commodious ride to and from the airport. Rolls-Royce airport transfers are priced at HK$ 1,500 ($193) per one-way, HK$ 3,000 ($386) round-trip.
For an equally glamorous and even speedier transportation option, try the hotel's helicopter transfer. You'll be whisked from the airport to the hotel's private helipad in 10 minutes flat. A one-way flight is priced at HK$ 13,000 ($1,672).
If economical but effectual is more your speed, the Airport Express train is an excellent option — it's located on the arrival floor of the airport and in less than 25 minutes will zip you to Central station in Hong Kong, where the hotel's complimentary shuttle buses will pick you up. Tickets are priced at HK$ 100 ($12.60) for adults, and HK$ 50 ($6.43) for kids.
There are also plenty of taxis available at the airport. Fare for the 30-45 minute trip should run you about HK$ 350 ($45).
