Day 10 - Leaving Hong Kong

It’s unfortunately our last day here in Hong Kong. Whilst this is our third time here and our second time staying at this apartment we actually don’t want to leave. We really feel at home here and adore the routine we have. The heat of the city is just about bearable and everyone is so friendly. The city has so much to do still haven’t done everything in our three trips. We will have to come back.


We arose early to get out before time to finish the packing and leave for the airport. We spent the morning exploring our area before taking the Star Ferry over to Kowloon. Along the waterfront we set and city watched the skyline of Hong Kong Island. The views are stunning if you are into big cities. 




We took the long way back taking the subway back over to central and walking back to our apartment during the lunchtime rush.


With the final packing done we left for the airport. From experience, taxis will not pick you up if you have luggage. They must fear a ride to the airport. So used Uber and had a very nice car pick us from the front door. The airport express leaves from Hong Kong station every 10 minutes or so. You can even check in your luggage at the train station. This really removes a lot of the stress about travelling to the Airport knowing you’ve already checked in your bags. 


It only took us 20 minutes from leaving the apartment to have had our bags checked in and be on the train. Super efficient. 


At the airport we just had time for dinner before boarding our 8 hour flight back to Dubai. This time we are back in economy, we didn’t get the offer to upgrade our tickets. So it’s down the back of the plane for us. 


We have loved our trip to Hong Kong and Macau Staying at Kenny's apartment (the chap who owns the place) is a real home from home. We felt really welcomed and comfortable here. We will will be back.

Next stop for us is Dubai where we start our final adventure for our 2016 holiday.
