I arrived in HK off the Finnair A350 and Cathay was due to land in HK the day after although it was very early and i hadn't got over my jet lag / it was landing probably in the dark or i would be climbing an unfamiliar mountain in the dark.

So i waited for the first flight to TPE and here's a few pictures, I had to Dodge about 6 dogs lying in wait and 1 Bull waiting at the entrance to the first path which i video'd too just incase i needed to make an insurance claim or a viral video can't get hurt for nothing :)

Walk to Olympic Station from Yau mei Tai, it saves me going to Central and walking for ages in the station to get to the airport line and saves money.
First location walk days before the cathay flight

I liked the curry that i had at Tsim Sha Tsui, that set was a similar price to mcdonalds so i started eating here instead.

I spent my last day with an amazing person i met at the hostel and thus i neglected the Cathay A350 at the gate filming as i've never had such a great experience with someone so we just kept walking places and seeing hong kong together.
We arrived back and i had to just get right out of there for the train and i got there just in time for boarding

Conclusion

HK Express is a good airline to fly on, no worries at all. I think the seat might be thin because the passenger in front could feel my laptop pushing into their behind when it was catching on the chair while putting it underneath. I think i remember the same thing on my previous flight years ago when a guy was behind with his knees but this aircraft leg room space was a lot more than last time.

Haneda is better in my opinion compared to Narita as it's cheaper to get from there and quicker
