Best area to stay in Hong Kong

Shops at Hong Kong International Airport SkyMart and SkyPlazaIf you have a connecting flight to catch but would like to enjoy the stop over time in Hong Kong, you may want to drop your hand luggage and enjoy you visit relaxed.

There is a secure short-term baggage storage facility located on Level 3 of Terminal 2. It is about 15min walk from the Arrival Hall of Hong Kong Airport. Storing your bags is available on an hourly charge for HK$ 12/piece. The daily fee is HK$ 140. The luggage facility is open from 5:30am – 1:30am (Monday to Sunday). For enquiries you can reach them under + (852) 2261 0110.

Big Buddha or Giant Buddha on Lantau IslandTaking the Airport-Express to Central (Hong Kong Island) or the Kowloon side is a fastest and most direct way to downtown areas. It will take roughly 30 minutes for a single ride. You also can consider taking airbus to downtown, which takes about 45-150 min depending on your destination.

Plus another 30 min travelling back to the airport and 1-1.5 hour before boarding your connecting flight, it is only possible to make a visit to downtown Hong Kong if you have over 6-8 hours in-between. An ideal stop-hour time would be above 8+ hours. This would leave you enough time to enjoy some sightseeing places without worrying to much about catching the outbound flight as well as being too much in a rush.

Symphony of Lights from Tsim Sha TsuiImportant: The time requirement for exiting and entering the airport plus traveling to/from the downtown area via the Airport Express can be estimated with 2.5 – 3 hours (round trip), but we recommend planning some buffer time. Taking this estimate as a basis you can consider to do some shopping or sightseeing when you have a stop-over for at least 5-6 hours. Deducting the travel and waiting time at Immigration will leave you with about 1.5 – 2 hours to enjoy Hong Kong. Please consider that in case your flight has been arriving with a delay that this will automatically shorten your stop-over time. Don’t forget you need to be at least 40-45 minute ahead of taking-off time at the gate for boarding.

How to Manage the Limited Time and See The Most of Hong Kong ?

The arrangement of itinerary is majorly depends how long your stop-over time is and what your interests are. Naturally, the longer, the more you can see and explore. As I have mentioned above, it is only do-able to take a look of downtown Hong Kong if you have over 6-8 hour time before your connecting flight.
