Comments on Hong Kong – from Kevin Willits

Just back from a great holiday in Hong Kong for a week. My first trip to HK but I am sure many may have been there before. I latched on to a good holiday package from Luxury Escapes and stayed at the 5 Star Conrad Hotel which was magnificent. Express train from the airport to the city then free courtesy bus to our hotel.

Did the usual tourist activities like the Hop On Hop Off Bus, Hong Kong Disneyland and a trip to Macau to see the casinos (No Visa needed). Impressions of the city – Spectacular views of the harbour from many tall buildings, large numbers of people (around 16m at any time), very clean city, food and drinks expensive (I know the latter will put many of you off) but the transport system is cheap and efficient. The trains, buses and double-decker trams are very easy to use and well signed so even dumb first time visitors like ourselves could follow.

Many attractions to see and I highly recommend for a great short holiday.
