Only London’s Heathrow and Paris’ Charles de Gaulle are busier than this airport, which saw almost 51 million passengers in 2010. HKIA opened in 1998, and Terminal 2 was inaugurated in 2007. Shaped like a “Y,” this two-runway space on Lantau Island is near the Pearl River Delta region. While some travelers only use it as a taking-off point, there is no excuse for layover boredom. Diversions include a “4-D” theatre, an adjacent golf course, an amusement park, shops like Giorgio Armani and Tiffany, and dining options ranging from traditional Asian to Burger King and Starbucks.
