Look on the right side of this page, on a computer, under the Layover Hong King item.
Subject to your flight's punctual arrival and another 2hr presence at the airport before boarding, roughly you have 8.30-11.30am(3hours) left to explore the city. Add another half hour breakkie time, technically you can take the airport express to kowloon or hk(central) for a fast window shopping and a bit of sight seeing before a mad dash back to airport.
If you are checked through already, you probably don't quite need two hours before your flight. I suggest you get back to the airport no later than 75 minutes before. Take the Airport Express to ensure a timely arrival.
My suggestion is take Airport Express to Kowloon station. Take one of the free connecting buses to Tsim Sha Tsui area. Walk around TST promenade and Avenue of Stars for the harbor view. Take Star Ferry to Central. Get to Maxim's at City Hall right before its 11am opening time. Have dim sum, then go nearby Hong Kong station to catch the train back to the airport.
Get a same-day free return ticket to Hong Kong station for this journey.
another option is to do some sightseeing close to the airport." Lantau Island, is next door to the airport, & is Hong Kong's largest and most scenic island, and other than beautiful nature sceneries of steep forest-clad mountains and sandy coves, it is home to some of Hong Kong's most spectacular tourist attractions."
Thanks y'all. Gave me enough input to plan accordingly. Great community's advice as always. Travel safe!
We'll hi did you manage to leave the airport and see Hong Kong? I have a similar situation in April arriving into HK at 5.20 in the evening and leaving 11.40. The same day.
Maybe the express train and see the harbour and have bite to eat.
wvmarie, that will be a challenge when arriving in the morning and leaving in the afternoon already. I agree, a stop over in HK should include at least one night ;)
cookie2011: I was replying to the post of Tracey W (stopover 17:20 - 23:40). Who of course should start a separate thread to keep things separate.
