HKG Terminals 1 and 2

Hong Kong Airport's Terminal 2 is used only for checking in by some airlines - it has no actual departure gates, despite its impressive entrance.

Thai is among the airlines that use it, so we picked up our boarding passes, went through pleasantly relaxed exit Immigration and security, and rode a couple of trains to Terminal 2, still the world's third biggest terminal (after Dubai and Beijing).

Our first flight (to Bangkok) doesn't depart until around 7 PM, so we rode the moving sidewalks in a completely different direction to spend some time in Singapore's Silver Kris Lounge, which we're allowed to access as Star Alliance Golds.

We plan on a couple of hours here before moving to the Thai Royal Orchid Lounge that's closer to our boarding gate. It's a pleasant way to pass some time before the flight.
