Google Maps' estimates of travel times using the MTR in HK vary wildly from the MTR's own webpage. Ie from Tin Hau to University station, Google says 1hr 24mins incl walking time to Tin Hau, which is maybe 10 mins tops. MTR website says 44 mins for the same journey, not incl walking to station obviously. This discrepancy repeats itself across various planned journeys. Who should I trust?

Recommendations for hotel by airport in Hong Kong for a quick overnight stay between flights? We will be traveling with a 6 month old, and will likely be exhausted, so sightseeing won't be important. Ease, (relative) affordability the most important things! I'm going to try to go on Kayak today, but rec's would be helpful. Thanky in advance!

Four, maybe five days in Hong Kong in September. What should I do/see/go to/eat? What's the best neighborhood to stay in for someone who wants to see as much as possible and take lots of pictures? Off-the-beaten path is great, but touristy is also OK.
