In this post I am going to introduce to you 2 attractions at the Hong Kong airport which you could visit while you are waiting for flights at the airport. They are the Aviation Discovery Centre and SkyDeck Hong Kong International Airport.
The Aviation Discovery Centre
The Aviation Discovery Centre is located at the terminal 2 of the Hong Kong airport, the departures Level (L6) near the food court. It is a museum which focusing on the topic of aviation including the world Civil Aviation industries and the history of the Hong Kong aviation. Once you have entered the Aviation Discovery Centre, there is a long corridor with exhibition on the right side, at the time I was visiting the Aviation Discovery Centre, there were Star wars action figures. Once you have passed the long corridor, you will see a scale down model of cockpits which let visitor to experience flight landing and take off. Proceed to the right side, there are many airplane models of different airlines around the world, if you are a model toy lover, you will spend time to enjoy there.
Other then the exhibitions mentioned before, there is a scaled down flight engine at the center of the Aviation Discovery Centre which you could get a closer look at a flight engine. And behind the flight engine, there is a wall with photos and description on the history of the civil aviation.
SkyDeck Hong Kong International Airport
After you have finishing browsing the Aviation Discovery Centre with the model airplane, you could proceed to the end of the Aviation Discovery Centre which you could go up one level to the SkyDeck Hong Kong International Airport to see some real airplanes.
The SkyDeck Hong Kong International Airport is a very unique place. Normally we only could observe airplane taking off and loading in Hong Kong inside the airport building or from a distance at the open area, but at the SkyDeck Hong Kong International Airport, we will be able to observe airplane landing and taking off on top of the airport building at a close distance. If you are an airplane lover and a photographer, you would love to stay there for a long time to take photos and videos of airplane take off and loading. The SkyDeck Hong Kong International Airport also give the visitor to observe different airport runways of the Hong Kong International Airport.
