Arrival at Hong Kong International Airport

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) rank # 1 in 2011 and 3rd in 2012, it's the most busiest airport I've ever been.  I like HKIA more than Changi Airport because of easy access to everything, hindi sila magkakalayo infairness.  Boutiques and food shops can be easily locate (but I didn't see any virtual map inside the terminal).  Boarding gates are easy access also, In terms of interactivity, I still vote for Changi Airport, they have a pocket garden inside, a huge TV with cozy chairs so you can lounge around while waiting for your flight.  Just because of lack of time,we're not able to explore HKIA, but there's always a next time.

In any country, the first thing that will welcome you is the airport so....walk walk walk
You need to ride a train going to Immigration and Baggage claim

When you reached the other side of the airport, look for the Immigration hall, just line-up to visitors or foreign passport queue, I promise you it's one hella long line.   Don't forget to fill up the immigration form. (tulog yata kami ng magbigay ang FAs ng Cebu Pacific..or they didn't gave at all)

Tourist Desk....Brochures: Get one, ako get all!!!

When we're done with the Immigration (actually it was a breeze, no questions asked..tatak lang ng tatak)
We looked for the arrival hall, since we need to buy theme parks tickets and Octopus Card.

You can find all travel tours, hotel booths at the Arrival Hall.  We looked for China Travel Services (CTS) to buy discounted tickets to key tourist attractions in HK and Macau.

We got Ngong Ping Skyrail Standard Cable Ride Round trip and Peak Railways+Sky Terrace+Madame Tussauds Tickets

We also bought MTR's Octopus card so we can used it in MTR, Buses and even purchasing goods and food.  Initial amount loaded to Octopus card is HK$150.00

Octopus Card  - HK$150
