hong kong layover

I have a 9 hour layover at the hong kong airport. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to best utilize such a short time in such a fantastic city. Should I hire a driver for a sight seeing tour...or just venture out for a decadent lunch. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. M.

My layover is on 3 weeks.

If you are interested in monastery or buddha, and your layover is during 10am and 6pm, you can go to Ngong Ping, it has a Po Lin Monastery and a Big Buddha Statue worth visiting.

If your layover is outside those hours, you can go into the city which takes only half an hour by Airport Express train. Suggest going to the Victoria Peak (the highest peak on Hong Kong Island) which has excellent view. Also take a ferry across the harbour. Taxis are everywhere and inexpensive. You can find out more at
