We spent four days in Hong Kong in 2009 on the way to Australia. On the way in we stayed at the Newton Hotel, which is mostly remarkable by the firmness of its beds.
On the second day we visited Lamma Island.
The day after we went back up to Victoria Peak and went for a walk in the woods.
On the way back, we stayed in Kowloon and went to visit the Big Buddha.
The local specialty is Yam Cha, known in Europe as Dim Sum (go figure). Small bites of steamed food, mostly. Lovely and very cheap, but only available for breakfast and lunch.
It's so tiny compared to the bank buildings. Maybe it's a subliminal message.
The whole area near the docks is under construction. From the docks you can take ferries from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon, to the islands, or to Macau.
Hong Kong airport is surrounded by the sea and the distant hills. Along with the large windows, that makes it the most scenic airport we've seen so far.
On the way back we stayed at the Nathan Hotel in Kowloon. Its beds are softer. Up top it's got a nice cocktail bar.
