Traveling out of Shanghai to Hong Kong
I made it to the airport with a little help, and now I just had to get my ticket from a customer service counter, go through baggage, and make it to Hong Kong. The bus was easy enough, the ticket was also pretty easy, it was getting through security that was difficult. I was given a piece of paper with my flight info and told to go to the third floor and to counter H. I was there plenty early and spent some time walking around the terminal and found China Eastern airlines and saw all the international check-ins. The counter was D, but had China Eastern written all over the place, and counter H was empty. I waited in line for about 40 minutes to get checked in only to realize that the international counter did not accomadate the Hong Kong flights. Once again I was told to go to counter H. I walked over there to see a vacant area. After pondering what on earth was going on and why I kept being sent to this area. I investigated a little more and found one woman hiding behind a large desk waiting for me! I was so relieved! Things were flawless from there. I arrived in HK, and the flight was very light in terms of passengers. We were let off on the runway and were greeted by a Transit Authority type bus that drove all the passengers from the plane to the terminal. Kind of funny to think that we all went from a plane to a bus! After clearing customs the airport express train took me right to my hotel and what a town HK is. I can't wait to explore!
