Thanks for the luggage tip. This would be a fast and light trip to tag Asia from the East rather than from the west (Istanbul) and then on to check out London Gatwick logistics. Generally scan ports and airports in advance of any trip with my kiddo. May also do a boomerang long weekend to Sydney. Tested the waters with my 26 hour day trip to Maui from Texas last summer. 8)

If on your own, I would recommend train.

When leaving HKG, be careful about carry on luggage. What passes as standard 22" rollaboard in US will not pass muster. I had to go back to check in counter and have agent give me a special tag so I could make it past the check point.
