Hong Kong Tailors Atlanta
I haven’t updated this blog for awhile due to a work trip Ben and I did to China. But I wanted to share with you our one day layover in Hong Kong. Personally, Hong Kong is my favourite city (outside of Calgary). What I really love about it is that it’s so very international. You see people from all walks of life. It’s fast pace, it’s beautiful, and the people are friendly. They have a convenient and easy to navigate transportation system (the cleanest subway trains I have been in) and there is an abundance of food choices 24/7.
Here are some tips if you do plan on travelling to this awesome city!
Ben and I stayed in Kowloon’s BP International Hotel located just on Austin Road. We’ve been staying at this hotel every time we go to Hong Kong because of it’s location. It’s very close to public transportation, as well as attached to a bus station that goes to the Mainland, there is an that’s just around the hotel which can take you to and from the airport, walking distance to shopping on Nathan Road, a 7/11 store (which really 7/11’s in Asia are so much better than the ones in North America- and not scary to be in), and the hotel itself is very clean and affordable.
I’m going to elaborate on the convenience of the Hong Kong Airport Express Shuttle because I discovered this after my second trip to Hong Kong. It’s so very convenient, safe and affordable to use and get to where you want to go. First, once in the Arrival Hall in the Hong Kong Airport figure out which area of Hong Kong you want to go, so for us, we need to go to Kowloon because that’s where our hotel is, so we just went up to the automated ticket counter and bought 2- two way/trip passes from the airport to Kowloon. Then you wait for the train to come, get in and take the trip until it tells you you’re at Kowloon Station, this trip will take a good 20 minutes or so.
Then once you’re at Kowloon Station, you need to look for signs that will tell you Airport Hotel Bus Shuttle, or Airport Express Shuttle and based on the hotel you’re going, you need to see which bus you need to get on. Then voila! The bus driver will drop you off at the designated hotel. I would highly suggest before hand to book a hotel that’s is on the
