The new Hong Kong airport (VHHH) is really great and there are buses that leave regularly for all the main downtown hotels. When you first arrive you walk through an area that scans you for body temperature. If you have a high fever they won't let you in! It's a quick but strange experience. Hong Kong is a marvel to behold! The Star Ferry to Kowloon is cheap and fun. The skyline is lit up at night like no other place on earth. It is worth it to get off shore on an evening harbor tour and take pics. Ride the tram (actually a fast cable car-train) to the top of Victoria peak for a spectacular view. Ask your concierge about some of the finest Chinese food in the world.
