      I have been through Hong Kong International Airport so many times that I thought it is about time that I wrote a review.

      The new Hong Kong airport was built on a man-made island off shore from the island of Lantau during the 1990’s, opening in 1998. The terminal building is absolutely huge, believe me it’s a long walk from one end to the other. Thankfully the airport has a train service to take you from immigration to the furthest gates.

      Going through the airport, either arriving or departing, is an absolute breeze. There are so many check-in desks that you very rarely have


      to wait longer than say around ten minutes. There can be a short queue at security, but again you are nearly always through in around ten to fifteen minutes. Immigration is also very quick, particularly if you have a Hong Kong Identity Card as you can simply go through an automatic barrier; put your card in, swipe your thumb and you are instantly through immigration. For visitors there can be quite a queue and I would say that this is usually the slowest of the formalities of flying at Hong Kong airport.

      Once through immigration, the airport offers a wide range of services ...


      • including a large selection of places to eat and drink. One of the good things about Hong Kong airport is that the food outlets charge the same prices as outlets located in the city itself. This makes a change after having the feeling of usually being ripped off at airports. There are also a lot of duty free shops available in the airport, but be warned, as Hong Kong is a duty free port the prices at the airport can in fact be higher than those found downtown.

        For a few showers are also available, as is paid access into lounges. If you

        have your own laptop, free wireless internet is available throughout the airport. For those without computers, there are a number of free computer kiosks available, but these often have a long queue of people eager to make use of them.

        Arriving at Hong Kong airport is also a breeze. Again it’s usually very quick to get through immigration and I have never had to wait longer than around fifteen minutes at the carousal to collect luggage.

        All in all I would definitely consider Hong Kong International Airport as being amongst the best two or three airports in the world, perhaps competing for top spot with Singapore airport.
