Predicting Chaos

Inquiry and Contacts


The conference venue is Hong Kong Parkview which is located in the hilly district on the north of Hong Kong island, about one-third in altitude of the Victoria Peak, overlooking Victoria Harbour and Causeway Bay area to the north and Tai Tam Reservoir National Park to the south.

From the Airport to Hong Kong Parkview

Almost all of you will be arriving Hong Kong at the Hong Kong International Airport, which is about 30 km west of Kowloon. The recommended means of transport for getting to the Hong Kong Parkview is

Airport Express Train + Taxi

Take the following steps, and you'll arrive at HK Parkview in less than an hour.
  1. The Airport Express Train terminal is right at the airport. Trains run every 8 to 12 minutes. Get on the train and go all the way to "Hong Kong" station, which is actually in Hong Kong's central district. This will take about 25 minutes. The fare is about HK$100 and is usually less than HK$100 due to frequent tourist promotion. You can buy the ticket when you arrive in Hong Kong station. So, don't bother to find tickets when you get on the train. Of course, you can always buy return tickets in advance at the airport if you wish to save some money and you know you will use the same Airport Express on the way back.
  2. When you are in "Hong Kong" station, go to the taxi stands. There are four of them right in front of the exit. Big signs and you can't miss. Tips: the four taxi queues are operating in parallel; the queue on the right most is usually shorter. (I don't know why. People just don't see it or they don't want to walk for 5 more seconds.)
  3. Get on a taxi. Tell the driver that you want to go to Hong Kong Parkview. The address is Hong Kong Parkview, 88 Tai Tam Reservoir Road, Hong Kong. If the driver cannot understand you (in case "Hong Kong Parkview" in English may not be known to him), show him the following:

    (Download a printable (high resolution) image of the above address here, I mean, now and not when you're in Hong Kong station 'cause you won't find an internet terminal and a printer there.) The taxi's fare is about HK$50 to HK$60, and there will be an additional charge of approx HK$5 for each piece of large luggage which is put in the boot.

From Hong Kong Parkview to anywhere else

Basically the taxi fare in Hong Kong is quite cheap. Even if you ride a taxi from the Airport to Hong Kong Parkview, the fare is only about HK$300. The locals consider taxis as competitors of buses and subway trains. Some actually use taxis for commuting to their workplaces every day.

Option 1: Taxi and MTR

At Hong Kong Parkview, there are lots of taxis available. You can go to Causeway Bay's tourist district (where you find hundreds of shops, restaurants, department stores, etc.) by taxi in about 10 minutes from Hong Kong Parkview. The subway network (called the MTR in Hong Kong) covers most of the places you wish to go in Hong Kong and Kowloon. There is of course an MTR station in Causeway Bay, and entrances/exits are scattered over much of Causeway Bay streets. The MTR homepage provides all the information you need to know about routes and electronic journey plans.

Option 2: HK Parkview shuttle (tickets available at HK Parkview)
The Hong Kong Parkview also provides shuttle bus service to and from the Hong Kong Star Ferry Pier located at the Hong Kong's central district, making one stop at Hopewell Centre, Wan Chai. The shuttle bus runs every 20 minutes (as promised by Hong Kong Parkview; but I don't know how reliable it is as I never used it). Then, from the Star Ferry Pier, you can walk to central's MTR station or to the Peak Tram station if you wish to take a look at Victoria Peak. Of course, you may ride the Star Ferry to Tsimshatsui, Kowloon (the opposite side of Hong Kong island across the Victoria Harbour).
