I heard that developers in Hong Kong have already changed the old terminal building at Kai Tak to house a 1/3 mile go kart track, a golf course, and even a bowling alley! I was enlightened to hear this because it was so sad seeing Kai Tak close, and now we know its still in "use"

Originally, I heard it the land was supposed to be transformed into more apartment complexes, because of Hong Kong's high population density. Maybe the apartment buildings will be built where Runway 13 lays.

The runway is still there but is being dug up....and it wont be untill a few years untill they start building anything at all. The old HK government flying service hangar is being used by Heli Hong Kong and EAA helicopters for some chartered flights i should think. In my Geography class, we discussed that the future use of the old airport (apartments) was not accepted by the government because there would be an environmental problem.....
Thats all i can say at the moment and i love the go-kart trak, it looked great in the news paper!
And i have been to the Bowling Alleyy, thats great to!
Im glad that the airport is being used again.
