wishing to see something of Hong Kong - not just the airport
It depends on time, if you are in Hong Kong at night, I suggest you to go to the peak, it will around 1 hour to travel!!!!But you can take the beautiful photos on the peak. Or you can go to visit Tian Tan Buddha. It is a famous place in Hong Kong and so near airport!!!
(The Tian Tan Buddha is a large bronze statue of the Buddha, located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. Also known as the Big Buddha, as it is the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha. The statue is located near Po Lin Monastery and symbolizes the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and religion. It is a major center of Buddhism in Hong Kong, and is also a popular tourist attraction.)
Also, you can try the restaurant there, most people like to eat (If you like eat vegetables). about 6 years ago
