Before your trip, dip into a cultural survey of the city.By John Sayer, Carbon Care Asia There are several reasons I care about the slow, complicated, technical and sometimes baffling international climate negotiations which start this week in Bonn Germany. British Airways operates a number of regular direct flights every week to Hong Kong, where you can enjoy the unique blend of Eastern and Western culture.
Hong Kong maintains a separate political and economic system from China.
Except in military defence and foreign affairs, Hong Kong maintains its independent executive, legislative and judiciary powers. Hong Kong is one of the world's most significant financial centres, with the highest Financial Development Index score and consistently ranks as the world's most competitive and freest economic entity.
Fast, cheap and reliable taxis are also available directly outside the airport's arrivals hall.
When in Hong Kong, public transport is the easiest way to travel, from the MRT rail system to the Star Ferry, which takes passengers from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon, among many other destinations.
Choose from World Traveller, World Traveller Plus and Club World flight classes, whichever suits your budget and requirements.
Flying to Hong Kong with British Airways means you can relax and enjoy our award-winning service, with excellent on-board food and drink options and the latest in-flight entertainment.
In many ways, Hong Kong is the perfect muse: the city’s thumping pulse, vibrant colours, relentless energy and modern beauty were made to be immortalised.
Little wonder, then, that innumerable film directors, authors, and musicians have taken the Pearl of the Orient as their subject.
And don’t miss a trip on the quirky double decker trams, a rickety but age-old way of seeing the city.
Whether you choose to browse its busy street markets, explore Victoria Harbour in a traditional junk boat, sample delectable dim sum, or go on an island-hopping adventure, count on being energised and beguiled by Hong Kong with our direct flights from London Heathrow.
On arrival at Hong Kong International Airport, you can choose from a number of fast and regular transport options to take you wherever you want to go in Hong Kong.
