    The place is HUGE. Allow extra time to locate your connecting flight. Meanwhile, there is good shopping and some amazing food stalls. Enjoy the long walks.

    Stylish airport. Not only aesthetically attractive, but it also has a lot of shopping and eatery options. Pricing is not too overpriced either. The only thing I did not like was having to take a bus to the terminal after landing here. HKG is great in that it is easily accessible via public transit. Airport Express gets you into Kowloon or Hong Kong quickly.

    Transiting here can be a bit of a hassle due to the extra security check and long departure hallways but HKG is a gorgeous modern airport that is as much shopping mall as transport hub. The massive glass windows and surrounding hillside make for stunning views.

    Chek Lap Kok Hong Kong International Airport is one of the main gateway airports to get around East Asia. It's huge and efficient. Plus, the airport has excellent options to get from the airport to downtown Hong Kong such as their express monorail and bus, which is the cheaper route. The express monorail takes around 30 minutes, while the bus takes longer.

    A beautiful airport with free Wi-Fi. I spent six hours waiting here on my last visit. Food isn't too expensive, but good luck finding a place in the food court to sit. I especially liked the Disneyland Store here, as well as Zara, which does not charge more despite its location.

    One of the highest capacity airports in the world, HKG is also one of the cleanest, most efficient, most orderly, most reliable, easiest and quickest to access to/frm town center, and overall traveller friendliest in the world. I look forward to travel in and out this airport every time!

    Call me bias, but this is still the best airport. Why? Because you get free wifi, decent restaurants outside of customs and great duty free shopping past the gate. Oh btw, I've had friends whom had gone to the airport early just for the shopping. That Good!

    Very clean, modern, efficient airport. Rivals the Frankfurt for Quite Possibly the Best Run airport in the world. Good transport links and excellent informational resources as well as high quality services overall.

    Eh. Okay as far as airports go. Nothing too exciting or special about this one. Nice by American standards but feels dated compared to the Beijing airport or even Bangkok's.

    The train connecting the airport with the city might be the most convenient in the world. Purchase your ticket after debarking, walk to the train and board; one doesn't even leave the building. In fact, the train comes into the building. Personnel load your luggage and won't accept tips. Your luggage rides with you in the same car. Only 3 stops and a tv monitor keep you posted as to your location and list the hotels near each stop. The two most popular stops are numbers 2 and 3. From these stops, one can take taxis or buses to their hotel. For the return, some air carriers will accept luggage at the departing station for your return to the airport.

    A world-class international airport! You get everything you need there, different type of restaurants, shops, coffees, and etc. There is a large arcade center with lots of sporty games such as shooting basketball, football, air hockey, boxing machine and so on. There is also a big screen movie theater "IMAX" in terminal two.

    Huge airport with lots of flights. Arrive early for your departure flight because there's great shopping opportunity inside. There's free WIFI at the airport, but it comes and goes.

    I had $1 leftover at the end of my trip and literally could not find a place to spend it. The airport is full of designer stores, but lacks normal airport newstands

    One of the world's best airports. Clean, efficient and great "on time" performance. Built on reclaimed land as part of the handover back to China, this place has great shopping and good food choices.

    Beautiful, clean, and an amazing looking place to land. If you're flying in or out of this airport GET A WINDOW SEAT! It's one of those shocking landscapes that is amazing to see.

    The airport has onsite facilities for storing your suitcase, so if you happen to have a couple of hours of a layover, don't stay in the airport GO TO HONG KONG!

    In the way of airports, they've got some decent restaurants and a great gift shop for those not looking to get out and see the city.

    HKG was once my favorite airport. Cathay Pacific is based here. It's very efficient despite the fact that it only has 2 runways currently. Check-in, security check and immigration process are all very smooth.
