The Journey Home
Our holiday was finished. On arrival at Hong Kong Airport we went through the formalities for checking our bags through to Glasgow and made our way to the gate lounge. As with the outbound journey, we were flying with British Airways, using World Traveller Plus between Hong Kong and London Heathrow (Terminal 1), and the domestic service between London Heathrow (Terminal 1) and Glasgow. Unlike the outbound long haul flight, we were not upgraded.

The Langham Place Hotel, Mong Kok
When we first visited Hong Kong, we followed our Travel Agent’s recommendation for the hotel to stay in. We like it so much, we requested we stayed there again. Once again, it did not disappoint.
The rooms featured a glass wall between the en-suite bathroom and the bedroom. Blinds are provided for privacy. I think the idea is to allow you to watch the TV whilst lying in the bath.
There are many excellent places to eat in Hong Kong, however we did eat occasionally in the hotel, which features a chocolate fountain counter.
The elevators are in the south-east corner of the building meaning that two of them have glass panels enabling the view of Shanghai Street in Mong Kok to emerge as it rises.
And so to the final packing for our bags to be picked up for the journey home.
