LOCATIONS

This section introduces venues and facilities in Hong Kong that are popular for location filming and how to go about filming at these locations. See Contact List for information on venues mentioned here. For more details of these locations, please refer to Locations: Venues under the Management of Government Departments and Public Bodies published by the FSO, or visit the ‘Location Library’ of the FSO’s website at www.fso-createhk.gov.hk.

Applications for filming at locations managed by government departments or public bodies normally take seven to ten working days. More complicated applications will require longer processing time. If an approval for filming is granted, film crews will be required to pay filming or administrative charges and deposits, and take out public liability insurance at their own expense (some venues may require to be insured in the joint names of the film company and the venue). Film crews should also arrange themselves to apply to the relevant authorities to secure other approvals or permits required for the filming as necessary.

Filming for commercial purposes on Government land, property or buildings is subject to an administration fee per application. The Government does not levy charges for filming for news or public affairs purposes. However, if there is any grey area between filming for commercial purposes and for news/public affairs, Heads of Department or their designated representatives will judge on the merits of the case.

As at December 2016, the charge for Government land (LandsD rate) is HK$6,900 for each application up to a period of one month and a further HK$6,300 for any part of a month thereafter. The charge for filming at Government property or building (GPA rate) is HK$6,150 for the first four hours and HK$1,495 for each subsequent 4-hour block. If extra Government staff or equipment is required to take part in the production, the actual cost plus overheads will be charged. A deposit is required and will be refunded without interest upon satisfactory compliance with the terms and conditions of approval. The Government charging rates are normally reviewed every year.

Beaches

There are 41 bathing beaches in Hong Kong managed by the LCSD, 12 on Hong Kong Island and 29 in the New Territories and outlying islands. Generally, location filming during non-swimming season (November to March) is more manageable.

Some spectacular beaches in remote areas in the New Territories are managed by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) or the Lands Department (LandsD).

Campsites and Holiday Camps

There are more than 50 campsites and holiday camps in Hong Kong. The LCSD manages four of them – one on Hong Kong Island and three in the New Territories. Other holiday camps/campsites are run by a number of non-government organisations (NGO). A list of holiday camps in Hong Kong is available on the LCSD’s website at www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/ls_camp.php.

Location filming is better to take place outside public holidays.

Cemeteries

The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) manages the following crematoria, cemeteries and columbaria: Cape Collinson Crematorium, Cheung Chau Cemetery, Cheung Chau Crematorium, Diamond Hill Columbarium, Diamond Hill Crematorium, Fu Shan Crematorium, Hong Kong Cemetery, Kwai Chung Crematorium, Lai Chi Yuen Cemetery, Mount Caroline Cemetery, New Kowloon Cemetery No. 8 (Diamond Hill Urn Cemetery), Tai O Cemetery, Wo Hop Shek Cemetery, Wo Hop Shek Crematorium, Wo Hop Shek Columbarium and two cemeteries in Sandy Ridge.

Hotels and Hostels

Hotels are privately managed and operated in Hong Kong. Information about them can be found on the Hong Kong Tourism Board’s website at www.discoverhongkong.com. Contact hotel managers if you wish to use their premises or facilities for filming.

There are also some private guesthouses and hostels on Hong Kong’s outlying islands. Check with individual operators for the details.

Housing

Public Housing

The Hong Kong Housing Authority and the Hong Kong Housing Society manages about 170 public housing estates and 20 rental estates respectively.

Generally, location filming can take place in public areas of housing estates during non-peak hours. Affected residents should be notified in advance of the filming via the relevant estate management offices.

Private Housing

Procedures to apply for filming at private housing blocks or estates in Hong Kong vary from building to building. In most cases, the building management company will handle requests for filming. If there is no management company, contact the Incorporated Owners’ Association.

Filming in private apartments is a matter between the film company and the property owner and/or tenant.

Law Courts Buildings

The Judiciary manages 10 law courts buildings in Hong Kong, including Court of Final Appeal Building, High Court Building, Lands Tribunal Building, Labour Tribunal Building, and law courts buildings in West Kowloon, Kowloon City, Kwun Tong, Sha Tin, Tuen Mun and Fanling.

To maintain the solemnity of courts, only the precincts of Judiciary premises are available for filming outside office hours. The processing time for filming applications is one month.

Libraries

The LCSD manages 68 public libraries which are generally equipped with reading areas for books and newspapers, computer and information centres and study rooms. The libraries are available for filming outside opening hours.

Markets and Street Markets

Hong Kong’s bustling street markets provide some of the most interesting and “typical” Hong Kong scenes for film crews. The most popular street markets for tourists are Stanley Market, Temple Street Market and Ladies’ Street. They sell clothing, souvenirs, artwork, watches and toys. The street market in Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, is a treasure trove of second-hand goods, such as TVs, radios, hi-fis and assorted electronics.

Large street markets selling fresh produce, groceries and household goods can be found in Causeway Bay, Central, North Point, Wan Chai and Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island, and Mong Kok, Sham Shui Po and Kowloon City in Kowloon.

Major wholesale fish markets are in Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island and Cheung Sha Wan in Kowloon.

Contact the Fish Marketing Organisation for filming.

To film in street markets, see General Guidelines in this section.

Most districts have an indoor market complex managed by the FEHD. They sell fresh groceries, clothing and household goods. Some of the bigger ones have cooked food stalls. Markets in public housing estates are managed by the Housing Department or the Link Asset Management Ltd.

When filming in a market, as a matter of courtesy, it is advisable to inform stallholders of your intentions and the proposed scope of filming. Some hawkers may object to being filmed while others may be more than happy to play a cameo role.

Monuments and Museums

There are 114 declared monuments in Hong Kong as at December 2016. Applications to film in monuments managed by the Government should be made to the relevant departments before filming. Contact individual owners or tenants for filming at privately-owned monuments. A list of declared monuments is available on the website of Antiquities and Monuments Office at www.amo.gov.hk.

About 40% of Hong Kong’s territory are protected country parks and special rural conservation areas. With spectacular mountain and sea views, the country parks attract numerous foreign and local visitors.

A permit should be obtained from AFCD before conducting any commercial activity in a country park.  Each application is limited to one location in a country park. Filming on Sundays and public holidays is generally not allowed owing to crowds of visitors. A permit is usually valid for a maximum of six days and the permit fee is HK$250 per day. Specific applications for permission to erect props or structures (with sketches showing scale) or to take vehicles or bicycles into a country park should be made simultaneously.

Filming of the following nature is strictly prohibited in country parks and nature reserves: lighting a fire or the use of fireworks, explosives or any pyrotechnic materials; vehicle (including motorcycles and bicycles) chasing or rallying; fishing in reservoirs during the “off-season”; bathing, washing, swimming and boating in reservoirs or water catchment areas; stunts involving actors on wire leaping from trees; and damaging, killing or felling any tree or bamboo.

A permit must be obtained from AFCD for location filming in a marine park, at least eight working days in advance. Each application is restricted to one marine park, outside Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays owing to crowds of visitors. A non-refundable permit fee of HK$180 is payable on the day of collection of the permit which is usually valid for only two days.

Any vessel brought into and used in a marine park should have a valid licence issued by the Marine Department (MD) and must comply with the Marine Parks and Marine Reserves Regulation. Mooring or anchoring is allowed only in designated anchoring areas. For mooring or anchoring outside designated anchoring areas, a separate application should be made.

Transport

Airport

Hong Kong International Airport is the world’s busiest cargo gateway and one of the world’s 10 busiest passenger airports. A five-hour flight from Hong Kong can reach half of the world’s population. The Airport plays a key role in maintaining Hong Kong’s position as a leading international and regional aviation hub, and a gateway to Mainland China. The airport is just 23 minutes by high-speed train from Hong Kong’s main business and commercial districts.

Applications to film on the airport island should be made to the Airport Authority.

Buses, Minibuses and Taxis

Public bus services run by the Kowloon Motor Bus, New World First Bus and Citybus cover Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and most parts of the New Territories. The Long Win Bus provides bus services for North Lantau Island and the airport. The New Lantao Bus serves the rest of Lantau Island. Most routes are served by double-decker buses.

Minibuses are public light buses with up to 16 seats. “Red” minibuses have no fixed routes and can pick up and drop off passengers without restriction, except where special prohibitions apply. Fares vary according to the route and you pay as you get off the vehicle. “Green” minibuses operate on fixed routes at fixed fares, which are paid on boarding the minibus.

There are three types of taxis in Hong Kong – red taxis operating in the urban areas, green taxis operating in the New Territories and blue taxis operating on Lantau Island.

To film on buses, minibuses and taxis, contact the respective operators for details.

Cable Cars

Ngong Ping Cable Car is a spectacular 5.7 kilometre, bi-cable aerial ride. The journey begins from Tung Chung, crossing Tung Chung Bay to reach the station on the airport island, and turning 60 degrees in the air towards North Lantau. During the 25-minute ride, passengers can enjoy some of the best views of the South China Sea, the rolling grassland slopes of North Lantau Country Park, panoramic views of the airport, verdant mountains, the Tian Tan Buddha Statue (Big Buddha) and the Ngong Ping Plateau.

Ferries

Ferry services in Hong Kong are provided by franchised and licensed ferry operators. The famous Star Ferry links Hong Kong to the Kowloon Peninsula via services from Central and Wan Chai to Tsim Sha Tsui.  The leisurely trip across busy Victoria Harbour is one of the best-value and most nostalgic ferry trips in the world.  Other major ferry services across the harbour and for outlying islands are provided by Discovery Bay Transportation Services, Hong Kong and Kowloon Ferry and New World First Ferry. “Kaito” is ferry service for remote villages.

Contact the respective ferry operator for filming on ferries.

Harbour, Port and Piers

Hong Kong’s great harbour is also one of the world’s busiest container ports.

A permit from the Marine Department (MD) is required for filming at locations where international and local traffic will likely be impeded, such as fairways, typhoon shelters, Victoria Harbour, ports, boating areas, waters adjacent to gazetted beaches, waters off public piers/landing steps, and any location where marine traffic is likely to be busy, or the filming is likely to affect other port users. If the filming will not affect any port user in the vicinity, approval from MD is normally not required. Should an activity during the filming is regulated under the Shipping and Port Control Ordinance (Cap. 313) or Merchant Shipping (Local Vessels) Ordinance (Cap. 548), a permit should be sought. A fee of HK$160 per application will be charged. For location filming on premises of MD (e.g. public cargo working areas), fees are levied according to the GPA rate.

All container terminals in Hong Kong are privately owned. Filming at these terminals will be considered by individual operators on a case-by-case basis. Please contact FSO for further information.

For filming, please contact MTR. Filming should normally take place after midnight.

Trams and the Peak Tram

Double-decker trams run on Hong Kong Island from Kennedy Town in the west to Shau Kei Wan in the east with a long history. It is a good way to see everyday life on Hong Kong Island on the upper deck of a tram. To film on a tram, apply to Hong Kong Tramways Ltd via FSO at least four weeks before filming.

The Peak Tram is a funicular railway that runs from Central up to the Peak via the Mid-levels. It offers a spectacular view of Victoria Harbour and the skyscrapers of Hong Kong. For filming on the Peak Tram and at its stations, apply to the Peak Tramways Co Ltd at least two weeks before filming.
