Typhoon Vicente had passed by Hong Kong by the time I arrived late Tue night, but left a lot of turmoil in its wake. We left Tokyo an hour late, circled before landing at Hong Kong for an hour, then waited on the tarmac for almost an hour. So by the time I cleared customs and had my luggage it was 1.30 am. The van scheduled for my pick-up several hours earlier had left. The airport hotels were all full .. I got a hotel room downtown, but the line at the taxi stand had 200 people, and the airport train was no longer running. One option remained : the airport’s night buses running every 30 mins. That got me to the hotel at 4 am. Quite an adventure.
