You mean in the airport? Last trip I had a shower (which was much more expensive than in Singapore on the way to Europe...).
Actually, if the cable car up Lantau peak is running 5 hours would be enough time to go out and see the Big Buddha.
I remember once, coming back from Beijing to Taibei, we did a transfer in HK. With only a couple of hours, we headed out from the airport to go and see the "big buddha". It is on the same island as the airport.
Now I live here, I seldom make it over that way, except to use the airport, and a couple of visits to the max security prison which is on the other side of the island! haha!
