| Hong Kong Airport is actually my favourite airport, although for others I know it's not the best. I like the large windows which are great for looking at planes, plenty of seats and dining options, and very cheap duty free/shopping in general, aided by the fact that the Hong Kong dollar has depreciated a lot! I would say that the location of the duty free shops could be improved, as there is only one electronics store which is not so convenient for transit passengers to see. Arrival into Hong Kong airport is quite a fast experience. After a lengthy walk from your gate, immigration is very speedy and our bags were already on the belt by the time we got out. On our way back, we took the ferry from Guangzhou to Hong Kong airport. This ferry is extremely convenient as you only have to clear Chinese customs and not Hong Kong customs as well. Saves a lot of hassle. Some gates are a bit badly signposted. We were at gate 36 which is at the very end of the long centre concourse, only a very short walk away from the other shuttle train stop. I had to walk very quickly to my gate as it was almost boarding time. There are a good choice of lounges from all alliances here, but the plaza premium (Priority pass) lounges have extremely long lines outside! In conclusion, Hong Kong airport has its faults, but I'm still overwhelmed by this airport. Even though it's 20 years old if you told anyone who has never been there they probably might as well have thought it was built yesterday! The most important thing: This airport's wifi is very fast and easy to connect!
