A quick breakfast in Hong Kong

Jump to last reply

I have a very early morning layover in Hong Kong, but want to get out of the airport if I can. I arrive at 5:05 am and my next flight leaves at 9:35. Although I know this is tight, I think it's doable for sure.

My thought is to take the first Airport Express to Central and then have breakfast. Then, take the Star Ferry to TST and the Airport Express back from Kowloon. Since we will be checked through and have only very light hand baggage, it seems as if we need to be at the MTR 90 minutes before the flight (8 am) not at the airport 90 minutes before.

First question: am I insane? I love whirlwind travel and don't know if or when I would ever get back. Fast pace doesn't bother me and I know I'll barely get a glimpse, but as long as I'm not risking my return flight that's okay.

Second question: is my take on the 90 minutes accurate or do I need to be at the airport 90 minutes in advance? The Cathay Pacific site seems to support what I found, but I want to double check.

Third question: Will breakfast places be open this early? If so, any recommendations near either the Central/Kowloon MTR or Star Ferry stops are welcome!

Fourth question: How close are the MTR stops to the Ferry? Is this walking distance, cab distance, etc?

Thanks so much!
