Hong Kong International

Hong Kong's airport is a huge complex, a fitting setting for one of the world's most cosmopolitan destinations. The cavernous terminals mean it rarely seems crowded. Some of HK's features are over the top. Flight delayed? How about a round of golf in the terminal-side course? An IMAX theater, education-oriented theme park, and an arcade with sports-simulators are also on the menu. The shopping (or browsing) lineup is a who's-who of brand names: Juicy, Coach, Armani, Chaumet. There’s even a Ferrari-themed shop. If you want the largest possible menu of layover options, HKIA is the airport where you want to be.
