Hong Kong overnight, Avenue of the Stars closure
So, I arrive in Hong Kong on March 8, CX 807 First Class around 8pm. My flight leaves for Singapore at 410pm the next day. I was planning on seeing the Hong Kong skyline from the Avenue of the Stars but unfortunately it is closed for renovation until 2018. Any suggestions on where this sky line can be viewed most efficiently on a short layover? I figure that I have at least 5-6 hours the following morning, March 9 before I head to the Wing Lounge before my Singapore departure.
Depending on the weather conditions, I am not overlooking Victoria peak the night of my arrival via taxi from HKG after checking into the airport hotel.
You can still see the skyline from Kowloon on a raised area right next to the Star Ferry terminal. I recommend taking the ferry in both/either directions, getting off in Kowloon, walking to your immediate right then up some stairs to see the skyline. If you’re looking for a fancy dinner with your view, try Aqua, or Nanhai no. 1.
If you’re looking for casual but excellent, try Din Tai Fung in Silvercord mall (30 canton street) in Kowloon.
If you want great views from Hong Kong island and a fancy dinner, try Upper House. Skye bar in Causeway Bay also has excellent views and just opened.
