"Big tourist attraction Chep Lap Kok" Lantau Island Tip by Chyan

Lantau Island, Hong Kong: 233 reviews and 606 photos

The airport Chep Lap Kok on Lantau Island is itself an important tourist attraction of Hong Kong. While flying towards Chep Lap Kok, you can admire the breathtaking scenery of The Peak that stands taller than the apartments and skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island as the airline that you travelled with actually circumvented The Peak for your closer look. There is no need to travel with Heli Hong Kong or clim up to The Peak anymore. The natural beauty of Hong Kong lies in the morning and afternoon from your aeroplane.

Fabulous shopping awaits you at Chep Lap Kok. For example, WH Smith sells stationery and mainland Chinese magazines that you cannot find in Bras Basah, Singapore.

Chep Lap Kok's food court which comprises of Western, Cantonese and Japanese fast food restaurants sell more variety of fast food than Singapore. For example, Burger King's combo chicken hamburger is larger in size than what you can find in Singapore and it is hunger-filling. Ajisen Ramen offers you a free drink if you buy a full lunch or dinner set.

Chep Lap Kok differentiates itself from other airports in Asia. Its airport airline offices are smaller than other Asian airports and they are directly on the same levels as the shopping facilities. However, the gate announcements frequently change on the small departure/arrival announcement screens.

In July and August, Chep Lap Kok is holding its own shopping festival in conjunction with HKTB's Visit Hong Kong shopping festival.

Chep Lap Kok is the airport where you see mist shrouding a mountain above the skyscrapers like a water colour painting and jets landing right from its viewing galleries.
