Kai Tak Airport

Anything left of the old airport that is open to the pubic, even to walk around the airfield? If so how to get there (bus / mtr) ?

Thanks.

I don't think any of the old airport area is open to public. There was a driving range, but not sure if still there. Just a lot of wasteland with some construction at various parts of the plot. Many bus routes (no MTR) go by the area, and the Regal Airport Hotel is still there (renamed Regal Oriental).

The driving range is gone to give way for the cruise terminal. On the side near the Eastern Apron (Near Kwun Tong By-pass) near the police station they already building public housing estate.

The latest plan says to move most if not all government office currently in Wan Chai to Kai Tak (with additional train system) to make it another business district.... Being live in Kwun Tong I think I should hate it as it means more traffic jam for me ....
