When you arrive in Hong Kong, your SWISS flight lands at one of the most amazing airports in the world. But Hong Konk has more to offer to its visitors.
In the 1980s it was realized that, if Hong Kong’s economic miracle was to continue, the city would need a larger and more efficient airport. A new location was finally identified, but it was 20 km away, in the sea near Lantau Island. The airport was constructed on 1,255 hectares of reclaimed land in an incredible 7 years. It also required a vast amount of transport infrastructure. When you travel to Hong Kong Island use either the dedicated airport rail link or the brand new North Lantau Highway and bridges.
