Where I stayed
Then a problem. The checking desk weren't happy as we had said it had a camping stove in it and wanted us to unwrap it all....aahhh. We weren't happy and they sent us to the security desk to have it checked. They didn't seem too worried, sent the box out he back somewhere and brought it back quickly with no wrapping undone or anything and said it was ok!?
Back to checking desk and through. We think we were on the limit with extra carry-on luggage but they seemed to let us through after the issues with the box?
So that is it, now Hong Kong.....but...we boarded the plane all seated and then the captain announced there was a problem...oh no, surely not our box!
This meant we would not get to HK until about 10:00, then get through immigration and then get to the hotel quite late.
Flight was bumpy as well with a lot of turbulence but the pilot made up time by flying faster so we got in about 21:30. Interesting landing in a Chinese country with the different cultural approach, lots of people with face masks on, personal health measures!
By this time we were quite tired so did not take in to much of the sights on the transfer to the hotel. Eventually getting to our room about 23:00! Oh bliss, what a lovely hotel, lovely room and oh what a lovely bed!
