    Chek Lap Kok Airport

    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!

    Inside Chep Lap Kok's Departure Terminal

    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!

    Here's the super website of the new super-cool HK airport... voted one of the TOP FIVE BEST AIRPORTS IN THE WORLD!

    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.

    Chek Lap Kok Airport

    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.

    Airport Location

    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.
