8 hours halt at Hong Kong Airport.. What to do??? 08.55HR TO 15.00HR
 
Hi All,

I will be travelling from Delhi to Tokyo on 20 th October. I will reach Hong Kong at 8:30 HR and have connecting flight at 15.00 HR. Can I get around in Hong Kong and visit some places???
Is it possible to get Transit Visa... I am Indian national.. Please suggest what will be the best option in this short time..-pradip

That looks like 6.5 hours to me, not 8. I suggest you buy a day pass to a nice lounge, have a shower, eat, drink, read, rest and be on time for your next flight.

By the time you went through immigration and got anywhere you'd have to turn right around and come back. I don't know what the entry rules are for Indian citizens.

There is an excellent article about how to plan a stop-over, what pitfalls to avoid and if the time is sufficient or not: http://www.nextstophongkong.com/attr...urs/stop-over/

Guess your time should be more than enough to visit some places and do some sightseeing and/or shopping.
