An airport that took four years in the making from the time the first stone was placed is a marvel to see.


One could easily put it as a tourist attraction for people visiting Hong Kong.


Hong Kong International Airport or HKIA has been voted the World's Best Airport for the third year in the running. And these votes are cast by passengers alone.


To begin with it is a huge airport. With some 80 gates alone for departures and innumerable immigration and baggage counters for arrivals.


The moment you land at the airport it is a great feeling. One doesnt' need to walk from the arrival gate to the immigration - there is a train. And elsewhere there are also horizontal escalators.


The staff at the airport is extremely courteous. There are - on the arrival side - a chain of restaurants ranging from Pizza Hut to Oliver's Sandwiches to others.


If one is travelling alone too it is quite convenient. There is an airport express which takes you to Kowloon - the heart of Hong Kong. From where one can change and get into another MTR train or just take a cab. The airport express charges 90 HK dollars and is a must-travel-on as part of the tourist experience.


While on the way back - you can either board the airport express or even take a luxury bus (there are several from different parts of the city to the airport). After checking in - the place is brimming with things to do. There is Starbucks coffee shop, a huge television set and even computers via which you can use the internet facilities.


The duty free area is spread over far and wide - as I mentioned earlier there are about 80 gates. There are shops ranging from cosmetics to alcohol to cigarettes to bags to chocolates to magazines and others. And they are not as expensive either. In fact they are reasonably cheaper than shopping in Hong Kong itself.


Like the city itself the airport is spic-n-span. By 2007 the HK Disney Land is going to start functioning which is right next to the airport. So the next time you visit HK you could probably begin with the Disney adventure.
