This is the continuation of a multi-part series covering my trip from Seattle to San Jose to Narita to Hong Kong and back as a ANA Ambassador. My flight was provided by ANA, but all opinions are my own. Part1: San Jose to Tokyo on the 787 Dreamliner – Part2: Connecting in Tokyo’s Narita Airport – Part3: Tokyo to Hong Kong & Back Again – Part4: A Helicopter Flightseeing Tour of Hong Kong.

What happens when you send two AvGeeks halfway around the world to Hong Kong and let them stay at one of the top hotels for three nights?  A good amount of luxurious shenanigans, of course!

Jason Rabinowitz and I recently had the opportunity to do just that and I wanted to share our experiences, especially related to the Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong. The experience and service began the moment we stepped off our flight.  We were barely out of the jet bridge and there was someone to escort us through the formalities of immigration, customs and baggage.

Once we got land-side at Hong Kong International Airport, the real adventure began.  We were escorted to the “Limousine Lounge” where our ride to the hotel was waiting.  What was waiting for us was most certainly a first for me.
