Thanks for sharing this. I still cannot picture where T2 is physically located. When you pull up to depart from, HKG, check-in is on your left for T1. Where do you check-in for T2, up the road a little futher? across the street opposite T1?

When you say it shares the same gates as T1, how is really a seperate terminal then? Or do you mean the same gate numbers, just T2 desgination.

I always thought of HKG as a stellar example of a 'one terminal everything there' example. It is too bad in my opinion that there are now 2 terminals that might cause confusion or require shuttle bussing, and that the planners could not predict capcity when Chek Lap Ko was first built.

And what about the Airport Express now? That is why I loved HKG, you come in on Airport Express (one final stop T1 only) and check-in, security, immigration is on the same level --no ups or downs.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, BTW.
