It was my eighth and last day in Hong Kong. Our flight was at eight in the evening and so there was still plenty of time to go around. The first thing we did was to check-in our bags at the In-Town Check-in Service at the Hong Kong MTR station. This is a free service of the Airport Express where passengers of certain airlines can already check-in their luggage hours before their flight.
Since we flew Cathay Pacific, we were able to avail of this service. While the In-town Check-in service is available for major airlines, unfortunately, it’s not yet available for PAL or Cebu Pacific passengers (as of the time of this writing).
After checking in, we went around Pacific Place mall in Admiralty. Just like Elements in Kowloon, this has a wide array of shops and brands, and is bright and nice.
And as shared by Leslie of Shoot First Eat Later here, Pacific Place has very very nice and modern restrooms, for a mall.
The sights from a walkway in Admiralty:
All too soon, we had to make our way to the airport via the Airport Express as we wanted to have enough time to go around HKIA.
HKIA is simply ginormous and truly a wonderful, top-of-its-class airport.
There were quite a lot of seating areas and nooks for passengers.
We grabbed fast food for dinner from Popeye’s in one of the levels of HKIA.
Finally, it was time to board our plane back to Manila. And as opposed to other airlines whose boarding gates are at the very end of the terminal or in a different passenger terminal altogether, Cathay Pacific’s boarding gates are located conveniently near the waiting and dining areas.
