I am taking holidays from 08 July 2018 to about 25 July 2018 and am going to The Philippines.
Prior to leaving, I had dinner the night before at this wonderful resort.
The following day, I took an hour speedboat from the resort to the airport. Upon arriving, I was too sleepy and hungry hence these. Coffee costs US$3 while the meal costs US$10.
Having enough time before check - in, wandered around the airport vicinity and took some photos.
This is the seaplane company check - in area. There are resorts in The Maldives that are only accessible by seaplane.
There is also a small duty shop just outside of the check - in hall, indeed a small one.
Resort counters. Just outside of the arrival hall. You will go to one of these counters if you book a resort in The Maldives.
About 2.5 hours prior to departure, proceeded to security check and then I checked - in. Here are some snaps of the check - in counters.
After getting my BP (one for HKG and one for CEB), I proceeded to Immigration (which took 10 minutes) and onto final security check (which took only 5 minutes).
Duty Free area… just a small one.
There is a currency exchange counter inside.
Here are the photos of the gates as well as DF area.
A couple of shots of our A333.
Some more photos of the gates. There were only 4 gates then.
Finally, boarding was called which was on time. As soon as I was settled on my seat, I checked the lav out - clean, tidy and smelt good.
Photos of inside the cabin as well as IFE.
Menu for the flight.
Had the chicken option. 6 out of 10.
Settled for 'Love, Simon" during and after the meal.
Cabin prior to landing.
Landed in HKG. It was a beautiful morning.
On the way to Immigration.
After clearing customs…
And then took the train to the city; bought a round trip ticket for HK$105 (or about US$15).
