Hong Kong: International Gateway
THE Hong Kong Tourism Board has welcomed renewed competition and extra capacity out of Melbourne following the launch of Virgin Australia’s direct route into #HongKong.
Hong Kong Tourism Board Regional Director, Andrew Clark said: ‘Hong Kong is the most visited city in the world and it’s no surprise given half the world’s population is within five hours’ flight time. The city is extremely accessible with a world-class rail system and express link from the airport; it’s one of the safest cities in the world, the dining scene is outstanding and there’s so much to uncover, from local culture to hiking across its many islands and beaches,’ said Mr Clark.
Hong Kong International Airport is planning an expansion project to keep up with demand which will see the development of a third runway, due for completion in 2024. Better transport links from Hong Kong to mainland #China will also provide greater access. The world’s largest sea bridge will link Hong Kong to Macau onwards to Zhuhai on the mainland and a new high-speed rail network will connect Hong Kong to Guangzhou in one hour, scheduled to open in late 2018 with plans for future high-speed connections to Shanghai and Beijing.
