Duty-Free Shops at Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1

After completing the departure procedures and baggage check at Hong Kong Airport, I finally gained access to the duty-free area. My journey was gradually approaching its final stages.

For my return flight on this trip, I also used Asiana Airlines. Asiana Airlines operates at Hong Kong Airport Terminal 1.

After completing departure procedures at Hong Kong Airport, I had to take a train to get to the boarding gate. However, since I still had plenty of time before boarding, I decided to explore the duty-free shops at Hong Kong Airport.

The duty-free shop I visited this time was located in Terminal 1 of Hong Kong Airport. Hong Kong Airport is known as a major hub in Asia, and the duty-free area was quite extensive.

“Operating Hours of Duty-Free Shops at Hong Kong International Airport”

The operating hours of duty-free shops at Hong Kong International Airport vary by terminal. Among the terminals, Terminal 1 is larger and has longer operating hours. The operating hours for duty-free shops by terminal are as follows:

  • Terminal 1: 7:00 – 23:00
  • Terminal 2: 8:30 – 21:00

“You Can Also Find Disney Souvenir Shops in Duty-Free Areas”

Disney souvenir shops can be found throughout Hong Kong Airport. They can be spotted both before entering the duty-free area and after entering. If you use Terminal 1, you can find a Disney souvenir shop inside the duty-free area, allowing you to make a last-minute souvenir purchase before leaving Hong Kong.

Even after taking a train to the boarding gate, I could still find nearby Disney souvenir shops. This shows that Disney souvenir shops are abundant throughout Hong Kong Airport. Although they are located within the duty-free area, the prices are not significantly different from those outside the duty-free area.

“Diverse Pharmacies, General Stores, and More in Duty-Free Shops”

Various stores can be found in the duty-free area of the airport. You can find stores commonly visited in Hong Kong, such as Mannings, as well as internationally renowned brands like Royce Chocolate.

I also came across a small store named “Discovery Hong Kong,” selling souvenirs related to Hong Kong. I was able to purchase a small refrigerator magnet to commemorate my trip to Hong Kong from Discovery Hong Kong. Although the price was unexpectedly high, I decided to go through with the purchase.

“Food Court Inside the Duty-Free Area”

You can also find a food court within the duty-free area. To use up the remaining cash, I visited the food court. The store offered a variety of food options.

At that time, I had HKD 57.2 left, and the cheapest item on the menu was HKD 58. I hesitated on what to do, but when I asked the lady at the counter if I could order the HKD 58 dish with only HKD 57.2 in cash, she casually accepted and handed me the food.

Thanks to this, I was able to use up all my Hong Kong dollars, leaving only 20 cents behind, and conclude my trip to Hong Kong.
