    Entry requirements

    by deeper_blue Written Jul 22, 2008

    Favorite thing: Entry into Hong Kong is much easier compared to China, most tourists just need a passport valid for 6 months, Brits can stay up to 180 days and US/Canadian/Australian/NZ citizens can stay for 90 days here without a problem.

    Favorite thing: Yes there is a left luggage facility at HK International here is the url to the page you need on their website http://www.hongkongairport.com/eng/tbu/baggage_left.htm

    Favorite thing: Passport control is behind you and your now looking for your suitcase at the baggage belt, if you would have tagged it with a Virtual Tourist baggage tag you would have already found it ;-).
    After claiming your baggage you will walk past a tourist info stand, if it's your first time in Hong Kong stop and pick up a brochure and some things to do and see tips from the employees.
    You have arrived and have no hotel reservations don't worry, at this counter you can check on which hotels have rooms free and make a reservations.
    If your only staying for a few hours and don't want to carry all your luggage around with you, then place it in safe keeping at the Left Luggage area.
    Need a ride to town, pick up an octopus card at the information stand found in the center of the arrivals hall.

    Leaving your luggage at the airport

    by blue_sky04 Written Nov 22, 2005

    Favorite thing: If you have a long transit in Hong Kong & you want to go around the city, you can leave your luggage at the LEFT LUGGAGE counter. The counter is located close to the arrival hall B, in the corner near the toilet. When you get out of the arrival hall, you should turn right.

    it costs $35, for "within" 3 hours, and $50 for 3 - 24 hours per luggage.
    The cost also varies depend on the size of the luggage.

    At the airport...

    Us three at the airport

    Fondest memory: Of course my favourite part of visiting Hong Kong was meeting and spending time with my penfriend Hyeran from Korea...especially since it was the first time we had met. What better excuse to travel overseas than to meet a penfriend for the first time... It was great that we chose such an interesting place too!

    HKIA

    Favorite thing: This is the airport that has been voted consecutively Best Airport in the world for 2 years running (2004-2005) by SKYTRAX members and voters.

    A self contained airport with plenty of shops for shopping and friendly utilities. Possibly one of the few things that is actually good at in HK which I have nothing negative to say about.

    Fondest memory: My fellow classmates from graduate school and I organized so-called 'Convention Tour' to Hong Kong where convention industry has been advanced. During our stay, we had meeings with distinguished convention industry players such as in TDC, Convention Center and some exhibition organizers.

    TSING MA BRIDGE

    by Adeline_Foo Updated Aug 31, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: TSING MA BRIDGE. The world's longest road and rail suspension bridge is the first 'fixed crossing' between Lantau Island and mainland Kowloon, linking to the airport at Chek Lap Kok. Lantau Link Visitors Centre and Viewing Platform commands a magnificent panoramic view

    Fondest memory: To get there, take the Green Minibus 309M from Maritime Square, Tsing Yi MTR Station

    Fondest memory: Kai Tak Airport...very memorable experience when landing or taking off in the middle of buildings! Especially during evening flights with the cabin lights turned off, it's a surreal experience having magnificent lights from builings so close by. Due to this airport's central location, Kai Tak was then ranked among the Most Dangerous Airports in the World!
    Unfortunately, international travelers are not be able to experience this now as flights arrive and depart at the new Chep Lap Kok airport in Lantau Island.

    Favorite thing: land on the new, giant airport on Lantau Island (not on the map above). It is connected to the mainland by Tsing Ma Bridge, another modern miracle.
