The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has locations at the airport, Lo Wu, the downtown Central district on Hong Kong Island, the harbour in Tsim Sha Tsui, and Kowloon.
The airport location is open from 7am to 11pm, and other locations are open from 8am to 6pm. All locations except Kowloon offer CyberLink (access to DiscoverHongKong.com), available 24 hours.
Our visit to one of their offices was helpful – we got friendly advice, suggestions, and assistance on where to go, what to do, and how to get there, all complimentary to promote tourism in Hong Kong. You may pick up literature by the pound, but having the information and a useful map in the smallest weight and bulk is best.
With her guidance, we made a day trip going to Lantau Island to see the Giant Buddha, to Tai O Fishing Village for dinner, then headed out to the airport for our next flight out.
We inquired about the use of the Airport Express ride on the Octopus three-day pass -- whether it had to be used within the three days or if it could be used later. She didn't know the answer but quickly called to inquire for us, and it turned out that we could use it later. She was very helpful. I did have some difficulty understanding the accent and low volume.
