A night view of Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok airport on a wonderfully clear summer evening.



This Hong Kong Plane Spotting and Photography Guide aims to provide you with information about what to expect at Hong Kong International Airport (also known as Chek Lap Kok Airport to the locals) for spotting and photography. Also included are some links to some excellent sites about photography and aircraft spotting.

I have been an aviation enthusiast for many years, and since around 2001 have taken a keen interest in aviation photography. I hope this site enables you to make better use of your time at HKG, whether you are a reg spotter, a photographer like me, or someone who simply likes to watch planes! This is a great airport, and a great city to visit!

I hope that you find some of the information here useful, and please feel free to leave comments or contact me with any questions or if you are visiting Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Spotting & Aviation Photography community is very welcoming, and we'd love to hear from you! Contact details can be found through the Contact page.

I am also a keen general photographer, so let me know if you need information on photography in Hong Kong generally.

Please Enjoy!
