Baby/Child Facilities at Hong Kong Airport

Who’s about to be flying through Hong Kong’s Airport for the holidays?  Who’s secretly dreading the airport/flight with kids and just wants to click their fingers and arrive refreshed at their destination?

Whilst I can’t offer you the latter, I can offer you some advice on what’s actually on offer at Hong Kong Airport.

These are real photos, not just Hong Kong Airports’ website promo pictures which quite frankly make the play areas look a lot better than they really are.

Baby Changing Facilities

Landside (i.e. before you go through security)
There’s baby changing to the left of the South security point and opposite the ‘G’ check-in desks

Airside
There are lots of baby changing facilities (HK Airports website claims 32 ‘nursery rooms’).  Some are dedicated changing rooms and breast feeding rooms, others are a pull down changing table in the main toilet.

For Older Kids….

If you’re stuck at the airport for a really long time, take your kids to the IMAX Theatre in Terminal 2

Plane spotters will enjoy the Aviation Discovery Centre with some hands-on exhibits including a Cockpit Simulator
