Hong Kong Airport Causeway Bay Mall

20 March 2010

Welcome to Hong Kong

Arriving into Hong Kong was very smooth also, first off the plane, first to the customs line, bought an octopus card tourist pass thing that gets you to the city on the cool train, then unlimited use of public transport for 3 days, train arrived 1 minute after I got there, I changed to an MTR train in seconds, that arrived at a mega mall that has a connection direct to my hotel...I had yet to set foot outside!
I thought I would have to leave my bags and wait hours for a room, but no, they had one available now, and check in was hugely efficient, very impressive compared to the idiots in England who take an age to do anything.

And heres my ticket, showing that I flew in row 2, which might happen again, but next time it will be a business class seat because there will be no first class on most planes and where there is, theres no such thing as upgrades to first (OK thats the end of plane status wankerisms).

The airport express train, it was pretty great, had a display showing where you are on a digital map, the only problem I had was at one point I know we went over a huge bridge, because I could see downwards that we were high off the ocean, but for whatever reason they had blocked the view apart from a little gap almost straight down.

Mountains - the jaggedness of these was surprising, you see a lot of them from the airport train, im excited to go climb some of them as I could see concrete walking paths up them.


Hong Kong-Airport-Causeway Bay-Mall - I found a supermarket more impressive than macro foods in Kensington London, this place really did have everything, it was very expensive though.
