ooooh no - 20+ hours in a bucket seat? (even with movies)
Chinese New Year fire works in Hong Kong likely to be a better display - and only half the time in the bucket seat. If you can upgrade to business or first - the movies might blurr into the free champagne - and you can lie down!!
You could stop off in HK for 9 months or so to recover before moving on to Sydney, or do it the other way round and only a few months in Sydney and then realise you really shouldn't have bothered with Sydney when you see the HK ones on the way back!!
Don't bother going for the Cricket though -.... oh dear don't we have another drubbing starting tonight?
