Got a flight with air asia from Bangkok to Hong Kong (£60) which took about 3 an half hours...
When you arrive in Hongkong airport which is on Lantu island you have to get a train to the customs area and baggage claim! I went through customs and because im British i got a 180day visa granted on arrival.
I then had to decide where i wanted to stay i got my lonley planet out and had a look! Not a great help to be honest never did like choosing hotels from a book! So i just decided and area i would stay and decided to go to Kowloon!
So i had to get the express train which i think was 30 HKD which i bought in the airport and got off at the Kowloon stop, then there was a free shuttle bus to places i looked on the map and decided to get it to the Sheraton Hotel which was near Chunking Mansions.
Well as soon as i found Chunking Mansions i was being dragged to a room and was a bit tired so decided to accept but to my horror it was very very dirty in this room- THICK dirt on the mirror and the walls wasnt nice at all!
I went and had a walk about Kowloon which was really busy and bright with all the signs but then went to bed in my hotel as was pretty tired out as was a long day!
