Hong Kong has been a place I have visited often in the early 2000s, but not much of late. The visits started when I began to use the Round-the-World tickets that Cathay Pacific used to offer – and Hong Kong became a convenient stopover en route to the US. HK has always had one of the most efficient airports, and getting into the city has always been a breeze.
A close friend used to live in HK (he has since moved back to India), and that was an added attraction. Hong Kong was also a natural stop for the East Asia vacations – whether it was to Bangkok, Beijing or Seoul.
My last visit to HK was more than four-and-a-half years ago, and that was a very short one. This is going to the first ‘vacation’ visit with Abhishek.
I am looking forward to the HK leg of the vacation – its sure to bring back old, pleasant memories. The one I still remember is sitting in the cockpit during the HK landing on a Cathay Pacific fligh. That’s one thing that will never happen again!
