Hong Kong Airport*- one of the top 10 construction achievements of the
20th century - the passenger terminal is the largest enclosed public space

Kai Tak -
The new Hong Kong airport replaced Kai Tak airport - one of the most
dangerous in the world due to the tricky last minute flight maneuvers
required to land because of high rise towers and a large hill at the
approach end of a too short runway. Its was a harrowing experience looking
out the window of the left side of the plane and looking straight into the
windows and balconies of apartment buildings.
