Hi all. We are flying Qantas from Brisbane to Hong Kong, then a 6 hour layover, then Swiss Air to London via Zurich. Our luggage will be checked through. We are travelling in April, arriving HK 6.05pm leaving HK 11.30pm same night.
Does anyone know if we are allowed to leave the airport during this layover time? If possible we would like to visit a market that sells clothing etc. We only would like to shop for an hour or so then head back to airport.
If we have boarding passes already do we need to go through check in or just proceed straight to Customs/Immigration?
Will we need to pay departure tax again? I think it is included in our tickets but that may only apply if we remain in the airport. How much is HK departure tax?
Thank you for your time.
