Hong Kong’s airport was previously in the city centre and it was an experience to fly in among the skyscrapers. But the new airport is still a major sight. Feted as one of the most ambitious engineering projects ever, this large airport really is proof that the construction of an airport is a prestige project and a work of art, too. The British architect, Sir Norman Foster, has described the building as homage to travellers in modern times. The new high-tech airport lies a little way outside Hong Kong, but the Airport Express leaves every twelve minutes from 5.50 - 24.48 and takes you downtown in 24 minutes. A number of public buses also take you into the city. At the airport there is also an Airport Ambassador Programme and a Costumer Service Centre you can turn to for more information and help.
