Tourism has grown tremendously the last years, mostly from the Chinese mainland but Hong Kong remains a magnet for people from all over the world.

Hong Kong International Airport information
The new Hong Kong International Airport or also named Chek Lap Kok Airport opened in 1998 replacing the aging and congested Kai Tak Airport near the city centre. The Hong Kong International Airport is built on an artificial island made by Dutch engineers. The construction of the airport, including the land reclamation made it the most expensive airport project ever with a total cost of 20 billion US Dollars. Since the opening it has been named Best Airport in the world by Skytrax five times.
The airport has two terminals. Terminal 1 is the main terminal and the third biggest in the world. Terminal 2 is check-in only and has no gates or arrival facilities. It is aimed at low-cost carriers. Passengers checking in here will be transported underground to a gate at Terminal 1. With over 50 million passengers a year Hong Kong International is one of the busiest in the world and also the second busiest (after London Heathrow) with two runways. A third runway is planned for to increase the possible flight movements as the airport is running near capacity already.
