Top review

Kate & family are "in transit in Hong Kong, en route from Johannesburg to Auckland and have a few hours to wile away at the airport", so decide to head for the city: "We are exhilarated by the stunning views of granite outcrops, shimmering harbour views and impressive skyscrapers. This ‘plaasjaapie’ has grown accustomed to Natalia being the tallest building in my vista and I can’t help but gawk."
