I arrive at 5 am Hong Kong and leave at 12 noon so where can I go in between in HK?
Answered by Vida from USA | Sep. 29, 2018 18:31
Dear, to be honest, you'd better stay in the airport, because you need to come back to the airport at least 2 hours in advance. There are duty-free shops, restaurants, cafe shops... all kinds of shops and I believe you can spend a nice time in the airport.
