After an awesome night’s rest at the Ovolo Southside and a day at Hong Kong Disneyland, I decided to head to the airport to experience the Emirates Lounge Hong Kong Airport.

The airport isn’t too far from Hong Kong Disneyland, but if you’re going there via train from the park, it’s going to require three trips. One trip on the Disneyland Line of the MTR, another one-stop hop on another MTR line, and then the Airport Express train.
Once at the airport, boarding pass already in hand, I walked through customs. There was a bit of a wait, but nothing more than a few minutes. After I was through, I took the airport train to the Emirates Lounge, which was located upstairs in Terminal 1.
I was pretty hot and sweaty from a day at the park, so I elected to take a shower in the lounge. While not the most elegant shower I’d ever seen in an airport lounge, it did the trick.
With a few hours to kill, I found a comfortable spot in the near-empty lounge to do some work and nosh on some food.
I loved the views from the open-air lounge, which could get noisy due to the terminal below.
Lounge attendants came along periodically asking if they could get me anything to drink. Moët was served, in case you were wondering…
I decided to get some food, and was extremely impressed with the buffet options, which featured (perfectly cooked) steak filets and pastas.
I haven’t mentioned this during my trip report yet, but I think I ate up to 50 dates at this point. I love dates, and they are everywhere when flying Emirates.
You could also serve yourself some drink, which I did during my stay.
A lot of magazines were also available to read.
Of all the “outstation” lounges I visited this trip run by Emirates, this one was my favorite. The food, views, and service were all top-notch. And, just like that, it was time to board the A380 once more, this time in business class!
