We were quite excited to experience Hong Kong and all its color and splendour in 3 days. Boarding Cathy Pacific at 12 noon South African time prepared us for the long 13 hour flight to Hong Kong. We were expected to arrive at 7am Hong Kong Time.
After a few movies and a nap here and there we landed at Hong Kong International airport and the first thing on the menu was a Peppermint Latte from Starbucks. We were advised to take a train to the hotel which was the Conrad Hilton. The plan was to not to sleep and explore Hong Kong City arount the area by foot.
We checked into the Conrad Hilton and the the room and view was spectecular and breathtaking. The bathroom was spacious and elegent and that view overlooking Hong Kong harbour was just wow.
A quick shower to Freshen up and off to explore the surroundings on foot.
Hong Kong to me seemed to be like the Dubai of Asia
