Default Hong Kong Airport Express

I have a DH to Hong Kong coming up and I'd like to take the Airport Express train from the airport to the Kowloon station (then a cab to the Sheraton). After you get into the main arrival lobby in the airport, where we normally meet Parklane, where do I go to find the train?

Thanks in advance.

Don't bother taking a cab. Once you reach Kowloon station. Walk upstairs and follow the signs to the courtesy hotel shuttles.
There is multiple buses to the area hotels. You need to show your Air. Express ticket for the free ride. The attendants will tell you what courtesy bus to get on.

I have never taken the train all the way to the airport but it's not hard to do. When you walk out of customs go straight down the ramp and follow signs to the train. From there you and ask one of the workers what train to take. You should be able to take a train to the MRT that stops right under the hotel, from there it's a short walk.

Good luck,

you cant miss it... as soon as you walk out of customs the entrance to the MRT is right infront of you. Takes about 25 mins to Kowloon.

There will be big signs just pass the arrivals area that say "Trains to city"...
Costs about 90hkd (one way) and goes every 8mins... takes about 20mins from the airport to Kowloon station... the rest of the gouge is like the others have said, either the free shuttle busses or cab... good luck

Why not the Airport Express to Central and then the red (Tsuen Wan) line to Tsim Sha Tsui across the street from the hotel? Cheaper and faster than a cab.
