I just returned from my first visit to Hong Kong, and hence first experience of HKG. I know there's a history of HKG and SIN competing for top airport prizes. But to be honest, I wasn't that impressed by HKG; it's very similar to the new PEK terminal I visited last year. It's sprawling, the shopping is a bit of a maze, immigration queues are not long, but exist, and there's nothing hugely impressive about the airport itself. The only two things I can say might count in its favour: • The Airport Express train is better than having to get the MRT across Singapore, stopping everywhere on the way. • Ironically, the SQ SilverKris Lounge at HKG is a lot better than what *Gs have access to in SIN when flying Y. In fact, it's as good as the SK lounge in T2 that I used once last year. Other than that, what is it that has HKG rank so well?
