HONGKONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT



The most beautiful thing stuck me was the ease with which I went thru


immigration counters, there were so many immigration counters and


every counter was attended by an officer, I had a chance to pass thru


4 or 5 countries immigration but nothing impressed me as the


HongKong International Airport Immigration process and the ease and


the quick processing of your check in.


In India Mumbai, I had to wait in line, in Hyderabad I had to wait in


line in Dubai, I had to wait in line, in Jeddah I had to wait in line, in Riyadh


I had to wait in line for an average 1.5 Hours or more, in HongKong I


passed in a jiffy it took me just flat 5 minutes to pass thru immigration.


The size of the airport makes it look so empty and looks like no one is coming


to HongKong, whereas there are continueous planes landing and still you


do not feel crowded, MTR trains are a pleasure to board and ride


in it. Escalators are very tall , some are more than 70 feet tall , its the size


of double storied buildings. I do not know the old airport, but this one they


say is new and it is impressive.


For a small country like hongkong, which is no more a country but now


become part of china, its a asset for 100 years to come, it will serve


Hongkong and the people who pass thru hongkong very nicely.


As I said you miss the crowds on all other international airports, here


you dont see them, The elevators in the airport have a capacity of 35


people and I dont remember how many tons and they are all have glass


cages. See thru you can enjoy your ride up on down, Elevators are almost


the size of a Big room in the city of Mumbai in India.



If just the space is an indication of things then I dont have to mention


what all services of Food, Shopping, Hotel reservations, Sight seeing


tours, Bookings counters etc., all has been made with through and perfect


planning.


You dont see people pulling toiling worried or frustrated people


anywhere on the airport, which you should as travel wears down


even the strongest of us. I think you can spend happily hours there


without feeling it. I met a local chinese couple they said they came here after


work to relax as a place of amusement.


I being an Indian , someone called from behind my back (Paki), it seems


this is a bad word for south east asians by local HongKong residents. For


me it was pleasent and funny. In Urdu it means someone who is clean.


No doubt there is huge amount of money spent in making this Airport


and the Builders and Engineers are very talented it shows in everywhere.


Like I said this place seems to be running smoothly all branches of human


existence with the visual proof of it. Its like ROBOTS running the place.


Everywhere you have seatings available unoccupied and abundent.



Its a very nice place to have seen, human efforts of perfection !!!
