Spotting In HKG And PEK

Tue Nov 08, 2005 12:22 am

Hi Good day!

Just wanna try my luck to see if anyone who was on transit in HKG before. How are the photo opportunities inside the transit area? I would have about 4 hours inside there and would definitely wish to make the best use of my time.. My 4 hours will be during the noon to about 4pm ...

My next question; its with regards to in terminal spotting in PEK. ANyone had any experience there? care to share some advice? Also, if you know, is there a place near the airport perimiters where I can get taxi and/or approach shots? Will be there end Dec though..

Would really appreciate if you can give me some advice ... Thank you so much in advance..

Regards,
Jeffery

Hi Jeffery,

I suggest you may contact some local spotters in Beijing who would be much familiar with the areas where you could get a look view to take photos.

You may check out the photos of PEK from the database, and then you may contact some local spotters.

Shoot all you want from the terminals at PEK. Glass is relative clear.
There's a ton of construction going on to the east of the airfield.
No doubt the airport will be grand come 2008.

Hi Jeffery,

I definitely will help you to contact a Beijing spotter who I know and see if he could help you out on this matter. I'm also a native of Beijing. However, I didn't get any chance to spot airplanes in PEK before I immigrated to Canada.

BTW, Jeffery, I have sent you my email address via Instant Msg.

Best regards,
