Escape from busyness at the airport
There are some places in Hong Kong that make you feel escaped from the pressure and busyness, like Instagram Pier and a small hill in Tin Shui Wan as I discussed before. If you want more, I can have some recommendations. Ok, let's go to the airport!
What I mean is not the giant terminal, but the rocks and grassland just outside the aircraft maintenance area, where you can face the ocean, watching airplanes taking off and/or landing on, watching the sunset, and even sitting down on the grass to eat and read...
Like Instagram Pier, it is not the designated public area but an unintended consequence. It's easy to get there since you can take a short-trip bus from Tung Chung, the town near the airport. You can also ride a bike but be careful of the road traffic. No preparation is needed before the trip. Just feel happy and relax.

Do check the weather and the time of sunset before going.
