After my inbound flight on Cathay’s A350, I headed towards the immigration. I am really impressed how easy it is. There are no questions asked at all, compared to the US. In the US, CBP even wants to know so many details from passengers just connecting in the states to fly to another country. After I cleared immigration I had to wait for my bag to arrive at the baggage claim and a few minutes later I walked through the “nothing to declare” line and was in Hong Kong. My arrival was too early and I didn’t want to go to the hotel yes, as my check-in time was still far away.
The plan was to use the Cathay Pacific Arrivals Lounge. First I had to find the lounge, which is pretty easy if you know. The lounge is located in the center connector between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. For people arriving in Terminal 1, walk towards the center of the building and look for signs toward Terminal 2. Follow them and you will see the lounge on your right-hand side.
