American Roadtrip | Nevada – Las Vegas 2.0

Hong Kong – A City of Skyscrapers

As soon as we arrived at Hong Kong International Airport we knew we were arriving in a city unlike anything we had experienced before. The airport itself is so big that we had to take a light rail train from our arrival hall to immigration and baggage claim.
