    Went to Kai Tat supercharger today. They have 4 bays. Costs $12/hr to enter. No clear sign showing where the supercharger is when entering the cruise terminal. The security people at the front gate has no clue of where a Tesla can charge at the car park. Tesla really needs to improve the signage and education of car park people. Also think charging $ to use supercharger does not follow Tesla's spirit of "use the supercharger for free forever"... Lastly, the ground at supercharger there is very dusty / dirty. Obviously it is the leftover of the construction materials for building the superchargers. Don't think it is that hard to clean it up a bit...

    Was going to EMax for shopping. Carpark full. Decided to try Kaitak Supercharger. Bad signage even when getting to the terminal. Asked gate staff about travel connection, he said only 1 minibus line and 1 bus line... turned back to queue for EMax carpark instead. 13A is better than nothing I guess...

    I don't think you can say that Tesla is charging for use of the Supercharger at Kai Tak when the owner of the car park charges an entry fee. Realistically, if you do enter, you can charge for 20-40 minutes and have a decent charge and go to the shops. It's a small investment in time.

    There is a park on the roof where you can have 270' view of the Victoria harbor. You can go down to the Kai Tak Runway Park, there is big lawn there.
