What you’ll do

Don’t waste your time mooching about at the airport during your layover! You’re in Hong Kong - the city of impeccable public transport - where you can zip around at the speed of light (not quite, but almost) and see some incredible sites whilst you’re at it. Whether you have a few hours, or are spending the night in the city, you’ll join one of our hosts as they customise an experience of Hong Kong for you that takes in the attractions you’d most like to see during the time you have to see them. You might like to visit a street food market or a restaurant where you can give your tastebuds an education on the finer points of Chinese cuisine - after all, good food tastes even better with good company. There’s (nearly) always time for a quick dash up Victoria Peak or some last minute souvenir bargain hunting too - day or night, the markets have got you covered. Immerse yourself in the city of yin and yang and shake off those layover blues before heading back to catch your flight. You probably won’t want to.

Highlights & what to expect

  • Don't waste your layover in Hong Kong waiting at the airport - get out and explore the city

  • With your host’s savvy, you’ll make the most of the time you have in Hong Kong

  • Squeeze in some sightseeing and visit the city's highlights

  • Swap airport food for an authentic local meal

  • Let your host personalise an experience that fits your schedule and the places you'd most like to see

  • A big plus, we reckon, is that you won’t get lost or miss your flight
