A Stopover City

An easy-to-follow itinerary for a two-night stopover in Hong Kong.

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” – Buddha

Hong Kong, China

If you’re doing a long haul journey, like the one we just did from the UK to the land down-under, often these routes require a stop. If you’re already paying for the flight, I say grab two or three days somewhere you may not have visited otherwise. This is what Hong Kong was for us. It’s a destination we may not have considered as a trip in itself, however a ticket to Australia with Cathay Pacific meant we could stop and see this little piece of the world, almost for nothing. If you are interested in learning more about stopover cities, check out the airlines that get you to and from your destination and their respective hubs to see where your next adventure could take you as an interesting side trip. This month, join us in Hong Kong as we share with you what we spent our stopover doing. Continue reading “A Stopover City”
