I can’t count how many times I have visited Hong Kong International Airport, on arrival, departure, picking up and dropping off family members in the past couple years. With over 500 boarding gates and the airport continuing to expand to cater for more international visitors, it’s like a giant structured beehive full of busy bee workers coming in and out. The stunning modern architecture designed by British Architect legend Norman Foster continues to fascinate me when ever I come here, it’s definitely Hong Kong’s very own architectural gem.
I remember those times when I was a young child, my family travelled altogether and flew to Hong Kong, and we were seasonal flyers with Cathay Pacific. We conquered boredom, discomfort, battled for window seat, turbulence, sleep deprivation, the best part were the amazing in-flight food. It wasn’t easy for parents travelling with 5 young children on a long haul flight. Fast forward to present time, a lot has improved since then – flight journeys are getting shorter, more choices of in-flight entertainment, more legroom and wider seats, and of course, customer service. Have you heard the news that Cathay Pacific will launch a 4- times weekly service from Gatwick Airport on the 2nd September 2016? That’s certainly good news for people who are based outside of London.
As part of Cathay Pacific’s Life Well Travelled* campaign, I’ve partnered with Cathay Pacific to take you to a trip back to my second home, Hong Kong. An up-coming post will follow, capturing the city’s epicentre of greatness has to offer, the hidden gems, and my top 5’s. Visiting Macau for the first time and I chose to explore the city without a map.
