Hong Kong seems like a nice city. I had a 12 hour layover here, and luckily they don’t require a visa to go see the city. For about 10 bucks, I got a round trip train ticket from the airport to the city itself. With only a few hours to spend, I decided I’d go up Hong Kong hill and then just wander around for a while. It was raining, so I got to see a lot of downtown while dashing from awning to awning. I finally got to the base of Hong Kong hill and caught the funicular train to the top. They’ve got a little amusement area up there with everything from an IMAX theater to a Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum. I hung out around the top for a while, and then when it became pretty obvious that the day was going to stay rainy, I headed back to the airport.
