Tips:

  • Hong Kong taxis are legally obliged to accept passengers. Only state your destination once you are in the cab. Take a photo of their licence if there are any shenanigans – this will often be enough to trigger a change of heart.
  • To hail a cab to cross the harbour, indicate to passing taxi drivers your intention by making an ocean wave motion with your hand and wrist.
  • Lost & Found Hotline: 1872 920, Complaints Hotline: 2889 9999, Enquiries Hotline: 2804 2600.
