Halfway through his whirlwind tour, Tony joins in the Hong Kongers habit of falling asleep all over the place and is found passed out on a ferry ride back to the mainland– and we feel how the power of jet lag, coupled with the heat, and the endless energy pervading this city, can make you need a nap wherever you can get it. 8:00 PM CT Travel Channel
