Opinion: Enjoyable Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) PDF Print E-mail

Your travel4seniors.com editor recently spent some time in one of the most enjoyable airports in the world. For savvy senior wanderers, the words enjoyable and airport rarely go together.

Most terminal experiences are filled with frustration, delays, incompetence, bad food, scowling security, unruly mobs, dirty waiting areas and other annoyances. Happily, I found Hong Kong to be totally different. My fave European airport is Amsterdam’s Schipol, but as good as it is compared to US terminals, Hong Kong is one step closer to perfect.

Wandering among  the upscale shops, bright outdoor plazas, welcoming eateries and comfortable resting areas is pleasant. Security check-in is efficiently quick, as well as picking up bags after flights. Management brains at US airports should take some lessons from HKG.
