This picture is seducing. I prefer Guangdong food instead of Hongkong food. But Hongkong is much interesting.

Oh that's even better. They're working on a HSR that connects Beijing northwest-bound, including Badaling, the most popular section of The Great Wall. It's supposed to be done at the end of this year, so it'll be a 20-min ride vs the 70-min current bus or subway-to-train systems. Depending on when you go, you should also avoid Beijing 2022 since they're hosting the Winter Olympics that year.
Nice! I'll need to look up completion date of this project. Saving time and energy is what I'm all about. Plus, I've never been in an hsr!

If you're looking to see the three biggest tourist historical destinations in northern China: Forbidden City, Great Wall, Terracotta Army, you can do HK > Guangzhou > Beijing > Xi'an > HK. You can take the overnight sleeper HSR Guangzhou > Beijing and Beijing > Xi'an to save time and hotel cost; they're like US$80-90 each. There's no HSR with overnight sleepers Xi'an <> Guangzhou unfortunately so you pay for the XIY > HKG flight, you go back to Beijing as a transit hub, or you sit in a HSR seat for 9hrs (or 28hrs on a sleeper, but...no...). Shanghai is also like a 4.5hr HSR from Beijing, but again no HSR sleeper back to Guangzhou.

Otherwise Guilin+Yangshuo in southern China is much closer and also a common tourist destination. It's beautiful and incredibly inexpensive.

Cathay Pacific has been doing a lot of deals $350-$500 SFO/LAX deals in the past couple years so you can probably wait to go. Planes are clean, food is good, you can call flight attendants for unlimited cup noodles, and they just leave snacks and non-alcoholic drinks out during the flight for you to grab.
Great info, I haven't been back to HK since 2007, thanks

Just came back from HK last week after also visiting Sinapore and Bali. I have to say, I really did not like it. There were some highlights of course (Giant Buddha, Ngong Ping 360, Victoria Peak, and most of all the amazing harbor light show.) But largely, the place is a writhing mass of humanity. Everywhere you go, it is jammed with people. It was doubly difficult because we brought a jogging stroller with us. But every city has quiet places where you can escape the crowds - not HK.

Also, there are just so many eyesores with rundown behemoth apartment complexes - just incredibly depressing. I live in NYC and the crowding drove me nuts.

Contrast that with Singapore which was like a sparkling new city with an out of this world harbor and Bay. Or Seoul with its sparkling malls and parks.

Extremely long flight no?

Obv price is unbeatable but likely terrible space/amenities wise for an extended period of time

Yes, the flight is long, but this is the life of a West coast American who wants to explore new cultures (or for many SF natives, their family roots). Yes, there's Mexico to the South and Canada up north, but we can't just let flight times discourage curiosity and cultural exploration.

Anyone have experience there...wish I could have seen British Hong Kong...sigh...?? Kinda iffy on China government with tourist stuff??
Yes British Hong Kong is no more.
Better visit Hong Kong before it's totally gone. Communist Party is trying to destroy Hong Kong.

RIP Hong Kong. It was a great place.

I have been to both when it was colonial to after it went back to China and I have yet to seen much difference except the flag. The food is the same, custom suits for decent price, but the prices have gone up from my last visit. Hong Kong government is still a democracy, but I believed Hong Kong custom can be quite restrictive vs those on the mainland, but tariff war is not helping, do no expect your passport will pass with flying color unless you are an Asian who can pass by with a smile. I have heard of Chinese American being harass by U.S. Customs at the border entry and one will expect the same for American passport holder going to the mainland.

Good price. However, the travel agencies selling the booking are not very reputable. I would rather buy them from Priceline, Orbitz, Expedia than from these foreign based travel agencies who don't even have official office headquarter.

This was my first time on Cathay too and all those glowing reviews had my hopes,up. But the service and amenities and cabin were just ok. Food was good with a nice Haagen Daz ice cream bar on the way from Ny to Hk. On way back, there was a 12 hr gap between dinner and the next meal. I thought they had forgotten breakfast or something. We were nearly to Rochester with one hour left before they started serving us. Aside from water and a drinks run, they largely ignored Economy for 12 hrs straight.

Cabin was old. Entertainment system was limited for Western movies (and no games). But the worst thing were the passengers. Oh man. Is it racist to say there were a lot of rude passengers? They'd snort and clear their throats constantly. Blast out phlegm. The one guy sitting in front of me snored louder than a heated conversation - no exaggeration. Then when the plane landed, they'd immediately pop out and start grabbing their things while plane was on tarmac. C'mon man, act like you've done this before. I've never seen this behavior on Korean Air or any European carriers. It was really off-putting.
