Make use of your long layover to explore the city

Make the most of a long layover and go out and explore the city.

I had 11 hours Hong Kong.   Taking the airport express train into the city was easy, fast and efficient, only 25 minutes to one of the main shopping  and hotel areas, Kowloon.

From here I took a 5 hour city tour with a pick up from one of the hotels.   Again, very easy to do.

I saw some of the main attractions in Hong Kong.   To the top of Victoria Peak to a get an amazing view down over the city.  Very worth while.    From there we took a boat ride around Aberdeen fishing village and then on to Stanley Market.

I learned a lot about Hong Kong in that short time.   60% of the land is mountain,  I didn't know that there were so many islands, and had no idea that there were beaches.   They drive on the same side as in England which I guess makes sense as it was under British rule until 1997.

It was a very worth while way to spend an otherwise boring wait at the airport.   So don't just sit there next time. You have a long wait, go and experience a little of the city.
