  世界上最漂亮的机场,也是造价最昂贵的机场,站在机场的出口你就可以看到美丽的南中国海,有3个到达大厅,其中一号大厅为国泰航空公司专用.服务态度好,但也有缺点
  一、机场面税店的价格太高一条国际555要HK120元。
  二、虽然有最便捷的机场快线但是价格也是最贵的到青衣HK60九龙HK90中环HK100(20分钟到九龙25分钟到香港)。
  三、过关速度很慢,等上一小时是很正常的事.机场有免费的咖啡和红茶供应,还有免费的市内电话你可以尽情享用.如果你乘座国泰及港龙的班机你可以提前3天在机场及机场快线车站办理登机手续并托运行李!其他航空公司可以当天在机场快线车站办理登机手续同时可以托运行李,然后没有负担的前往机场直接登机.这是全世界唯一提供此服务的机场!
  The new island of Chek Lap Kok(赤腊角), the site of Hong Kong’s new airport, is 83% complete. The giant dumper trucks rumbling across it will have finished their job by the middle of this year and the airport itself will be built at a similarly breakneck pace.
  As Chek Lap Kok rises, however, another new Asian island is sinking back into the sea. This is a 520-hecrare island built in Osaka Bay, Japan, that serves as the platform. for the new Kansai airport. Chek Lap Kok was built in different way, and thus hopes to avoid the same sinking fate.
  The usual way to reclaim land is to pile sand rock on to the seabed. When the sealed oozes with mud, this is rather like placing a textbook on a wet sponge: the weight squeezes the water out, causing both water and sponge to settle lower. The settlement is rarely even: different parts sink at different rates. So buildings, pipes, roads and so on tend to buckle and crack. You can engineer around these problems, or you can engineer them out. Kansai took the first approach; Chek Lap Kok is taking the second.
  The differences are both political and geological. Kansai was supposed to be built just one kilometer offshore, where the seabed is quite solid. Fishermen protested, and the site was shifted a further five kilometers. That put it in deeper water (around 20 metres) and above a seabed that consisted of 20 metres of soft alluvial silt and mud deposits. Worse, below it was a not-very-firm glacial deposit hundreds of metres thick.
  The Kansai builders recognized that settlement was inevitable. Sand was driven into the seabed to strengthen it before the landfill was piled on top, in an attempt to slow the process; but this has not been as effective as had been hoped. To cope with settlement, Kansai’s giant terminal is supported on 900 pillars. Each of them can be individually jacked up, allowing wedges to be added underneath. That is meant to keep the building level. But it could be a tricky task.
