Chek Lap Kok Airport, Hong Kong
I used to go to the Airport at around 6 in the morning(to work). The view on the way heading to the Airport was GREAT! The pic attached was taken when the bus almost arrives at the Passengers Terminal.
Did you arrive at Hong Kong Airport, arrival hall B between 3 Oct and 13 Oct (7am to 3pm).If you did, you may have seen me;-)
At the Arrival Halls B/A, you can find a Visitor Information where you can get free map, free visitor's kits, free advice in travelling in HK, and many free publications anyway! Check it out next time when you come to HK!
The Hong Kong International Airport is at Chek Lap Kok Lantau Island, about 25 minutes from downtown areas in Hong Kong.
By taxi : You can find the taxi's outside the arrival hall.
By Airport Express (train) : links the airport with the city centre and these new trains have space for luggage. They stop at Tsing Yi, where a huge modern shopping mall has developed. At Tsing Yi and also the Hong Kong Station where the train terminates, you can then transfer to the main MTR lines but stay clear of rush hours.
Shuttle Bus : Many Hong Kong hotels also run hotel shuttle buses to and from the airport. Ask your hotel if they have this service.
Fly in from any major international airports. The Hong Kong newly built CHEK LAP KOK AIRPORT is a architectural piece of art. Take a look at the (pictured) bridge linking Lantau Island (where the airport is built on) and Hong kong Island.
Take the express train from the airport to Kowloon or Hong Kong for a max. of HK$90 (about US$12). In about 30 mins. you'll be whizzed from the high-tech airport to town. From Central, you'll be able to take the MTR to all parts of HK! Really convenient & easy! While at the airport, for those of you who intends to stay less than a week, you can get an Octopus Card for HK$200 which will allow you one trip on the express train (HK$90) from the airport into the city + 3 days unlimited usage on the MTR (subway) + HK$20 worth of trips on the bus/ferry + HK$50 refund value (ie. if you return the card to any of the MTR station b4 you leave!). A truly great value for short stays!
Hong Kong's new airport, Chek Lap Kok, is without question one of the world's best and a far cry from the old one, Kai Tak, which it has replaced. Where Kai Tak was claustrophobic at best and bloody dangerous at worst -- with its runway sticking straight out into the harbor -- Chek Lap Kok is spacious, clinically logical, and absolutely state-of-the-art. With its moving sidewalks and people-movers, even though the distances between gates are great, it's still fast and easy to get around. Signage (signposting) is clear and concise, too, which always helps.
By air into Chek Lap Kok Airport, then take the Airport Express train into Kowloon or Hong Kong stations, then taxi from there.
Taxi - it's very reasonable by developed world standards at HK$15 for the first 2 km, then HK$7 per km. It's US$1=HK$7.8.
In June 1998 Hong Kong opened its new international airport - Chek Lap Kok - on Lantau Island. There's also an international train link between Hong Kong and Guangzhou (Canton) and a new six-lane highway.
Hong Kong has a fantastic public transport system of trains, buses, trams, ferries and taxis.
The airport in Hongkong is one of the world's biggest ones. And there are all kinds of way to get to or from the airport. You can look them up at the following link: http://www.hkairport.com/eng/transport/transport.htm
Did you know that Hongkong's spanking new Chep Lap Kok Airport is the second busiest in the world? Now you know!

Chep Lap Kok International Airport.
If you're intending to take the Airport Express bus, the fare costs approximately HK$80 (US$10+) to Kowloon and HK$90 (US$12) to Central - one way trip. Better still, take the MTR from the airport straight to the city.

This is the new airport replacing the old Kai Tak International Airport in 1998. It is very efficient with connections by Airport buses and trains.
When Arriving in this new modern airport you will be able to take the usual bus, taxi but there is also a train station in the bulding
When I was in HongKong I heard about the new airport about to come. Since it has been a couple of years that I visited HongKong the airport is finished by now.
