Hong Kong, Hong Kong Guide (B): Day Trips for a Long Layover in Hong Kong Airport

If you find yourself stopping in Hong Kong International Airport for a layover that’s over 8 hours, there are a few ways to take advantage of your time there. These include sightseeing in Hong Kong itself or taking a day trip to Disneyland. Here are some of the most feasible options for you.

The cable car station is just 10 minutes outside the airport by bus (S1, S56, S64, and S64X) or taxi.
