Hong Kong SkyCity

Hong Kong SkyCity (zh-c|c=香港航天城) is a large business and entertainment complex adjacent to the Hong Kong International Airport, and is built on land owned by the Airport Authority Hong Kong. It currently includes the AsiaWorld-Expo and [http://www.hongkongairport.com/eng/aguide/skypier.html SkyPier] .

Facilities

AsiaWorld-Expo

AsiaWorld-Expo [http://www.asiaworld-expo.com/] is the largest, and perhaps largest column free, exhibition centre in Hong Kong, boasting over 70,000 cubic meters of space. It plays host to numerous trade shows, meetings, and concerts (at the adjacent AsiaWorld Arena). It is directly connected to the Airport Express.

kyPier

This complex allows citizens from mainland China to access Hong Kong by boat or ferry. It is connected via buses that transport visitors or passengers to the Airport for connecting flights and vice versa.

Under Development

kyPlaza

SkyPlaza is a large entertainment and retail centre that would be housed in Terminal 2 of the Hong Kong International Airport. It would include the [http://www.hongkongairport.com.hk/eng/office/AWTC/index.htm Airport World Trade Centre] , which would house numerous offices. The check-in facilities of Terminal 2 opened on February 28, 2007 along with the opening of Platform 3 of the Airport Express Airport station [http://mtr.com.hk/eng/corporate/file_rep/PR-07-012-E.pdf Press release for Terminal 2 opening.]

Golf course

A nine-hole golf course between the airport and SkyPier. It will allow people as well as passengers waiting for their flights or boats to spend the time.

Transportation

From Airport area

Shuttle buses are the current options of getting around SkyCity without driving a car.

Airport Express, part of the MTR's Airport Express Line, takes only a minute to travel between AsiaWorld-Expo and the Airport. It costs HK$2.5 for Octopus users and HK$5 for others.

Automated People Mover is the current People mover in use at the airport and only operates within the terminal. After completion of SkyCity, the Hong Kong International Airport Automated People Mover will be extended to include Terminal 2 (SkyPlaza) and SkyPier.

From other areas of Hong Kong

Because SkyCity is located at Chek Lap Kok, the island Hong Kong International Airport is on, it is easy to reach from other areas of the city.

The Airport Express can be taken from Kowloon, Hong Kong, and Tsing Yi stations. In addition, the Tung Chung Line can be taken from Tung Chung to the same stations (plus others) via buses to Tung Chung at a cheaper price than the Airport Express.

The buses that serve the Airport are also options, including the A.21 from Hung Hom in Kowloon, which travels to both the Airport and the AsiaWorld-Expo.

The common taxis that service Kowloon, Hong Kong, and Lantau are the easiest but also perhaps the most expensive way to get to SkyCity.
