Once a largely residential area with a vibrant Vietnamese quarter, Jordan has had a remarkable facelift. In addition to the West Kowloon Art and Culture District and a wave of ridiculously luxurious apartment buildings, Jordan is also home to a new West Kowloon Station—the high-speed rail station in Hong Kong that connects to the mainland China. And don’t forget about the popular Temple Street Night Market.
Here’s a guide to the best—from fastest to cheapest—ways to travel from the Hong Kong Airport to Jordan.
Fastest: Airport Bus
Airport > Jordan (~35 minutes/HK$39.00)
Once you have reached the airport’s arrival hall, look for the signs leading towards the bus terminal. The frequent A22 bus will take you along Jordan Road in Kowloon.
Use the NWST Bus website or app to see all the stops and check its timetable.
Easiest: Airport Express + shuttle bus
Airport Station > Kowloon Station > free shuttle bus (~35 minutes/HK$80.00)
The most direct route is to take the Airport Express (teal line) to Kowloon Station (22 minutes). Note that although the MTR website states that Kowloon Station is situated in the Tsim Sha Tsui area, it’s technically located closer to Jordon and Yau Ma Tei in the West Kowloon area.
The Airport Express provides free shuttle bus service from Kowloon Station to major hotels around Kowloon including Jordan. Check the closest hotel stop from your destination on the Airport Express website.
Money-saving tip: Get discounts on Airport Express tickets when you book through Klook. A single-journey ticket to Kowloon Station is HK$80.00 and a return ticket between Kowloon Station and Airport Station is HK$135.00. Just download the QR code and swipe at the gate to enter and leave the station.
Cheapest: Airport Bus + MTR
Airport > Tung Chung > Jordan (~80 minutes/HK$20.90)
You can also take one of the airport buses that ferry passengers between the Hong Kong Airport and Tung Chung Station, the nearest MTR station to the airport (excluding the stations on the Airport Express Line).
S1 is the most frequent airport bus (HK$3.50). Get off at Tung Chung Station and take the Tung Chung Line (orange line) towards Hong Kong. Switch to Tsuen Wan Line (red line) towards Central at Lai King Station. Get off at Jordan Station.
The fare of the journey is HK$20.00 but it’s slightly cheaper (HK$17.40) if you use an Octopus Card.
If you don’t relish carrying your bags all this way, Luggagent can transfer your luggage from the airport to your accommodation, and vice versa.
