One reason why Hong Kong’s airport puts anything in the States to shame
I love efficiency. Maybe it’s my German blood, but anything that saves me time makes me feel like putting on some Lederhosen and dancing.
It’s like a lot of other direct trains to the airport, only you can check your bags from the train station. I checked my flight departure time on the giant overhead board and proceeded to check-in right there.
My checked luggage was on its way and I enjoyed an unencumbered and brief walk to the train, which arrived shortly.
The ride was quick, under 20minutes, and all for just HK$90 (~US$11.60) one-way. Knowing my bag was at this point now magically being transported all the way through to Laos without a second thought on my part filled me with glee.
Take notes, JFK. I’d just love a train to get to you from downtown — is that asking so much? SFO is almost there with the BART, at least…
