The Bucket List: Silverkris Lounge Changi Airport Terminal 2

While I have been to the Silverkris Lounge in Terminal 3 multiple times, I have actually not been to the one over in Terminal 2, usually when I am out on SQ it is on long haul and they fly out of T3. This time around I cater myself additional time to head over to T2. One look and I already feel it to be much more comfortable than the ones in T3. it is so much quieter and cosy. T3 just feels like a busy market place with all the late night departures. I was ushered in and informed to cater additional time to head over to Terminal 3. Similarly, there are separated first class and business class section in the lounge. On the left would be Business Class.

The Bucket List: Royal Silk Lounge Changi Airport Terminal 1

With my flight only departing at around midnight, I was at the airport pretty early as I wanted to check out a few of the lounges that I missed out previously. After spending some time and grabbing dinner at the Silverkris Lounge in Terminal 3. I took the Skytrain to Terminal 1 to check out the Thai Airways Royal Silk Lounge. Perks of the Singapore Airport, All the main terminals are connected airside. This is the other Star Alliance lounge in Changi Airport and the only one in T1. Terminal 1 is more of an oneworld hub. Signs are clear and you can definitely see it. The lounge are all located together around the same area, beside this Royal Silk Lounge, you can also find the British Airways lounge and Qantas lounge as well. I am really looking forward to check them out as well in the near future. The host was polite and there is no wait to enter!

The Bucket List: Silverkris Lounge Changi Airport Terminal 3

It has been almost 2 years since I was in the Silverkris Lounge in Terminal 3, this can be said as the flagship lounge of Singapore Airlines. If you have been paying attention to the news recently, you will know that SQ recently just announced that they will be investing more than 50 million to renovate their lounges in Singapore. This will take place from the later part of this year to mid-2020. I have to say that they are definitely in need of a makeover. It was interesting to see how things have change since I was here back then. Similar to my previous experiences, the host at the entrance will verify your access, there is usually no wait since it is highly manned.

A Cathay Present: Cathay Pacific The Bridge Lounge

The Bridge Business Class Lounge was the last stop of my lounge tour for the day. It is located near Gate 40 and the location is awesome since it is right at where the train let you out from Gate 1 area. This makes it super easy to visit. Perhaps this is also the reason why the lounge is super crowded. The lounge is located on level down the main floor and the exterior is definitely impressive. I have no idea why the lounge is called The Bridge, perhaps it is due to the reception being like a bridge between both sections of the lounge.

A Cathay Present: Cathay Pacific The Pier Business Class Lounge

The previous occasion when I was in Hong Kong on my outbound flight to the States, I had a fairly short layover and did not have enough time to check out the business class portion of The Pier. This time around, while waiting for my massage session at The Pier First Class, I decided to check out the business class lounge. Do note that the Business Class Lounge is located totally in a different space from the First Class side, The entrance to The Pier Business class side is located near Gate 65, just next. Similarly, it is located one level down the main terminal. There is a host at the entrance who will check your access, it does seems like the staff here are less polished than their First Class counterparts! This is literally Cathay newest J Class lounge in HKIA. One of their newest offering. It was fresh, new and absolutely gorgeous. Definitely, it is way more crowded here. I am also super keen to check out the lounge since I heard that they have a very unique offering now, A Yoga relaxation area which is unheard of actually!

A Cathay Present: The Qantas Hong Kong Lounge

Shall we just take a little break from Cathay? I am afraid that people are getting sick of hearing Cathay and Cathay! This is the other awesome Oneworld lounge that you can visit in HKIA. Frankly speaking, HKIA is full of awesome lounge, besides what I am going to cover in this trip series, you also have the Plaza Premium First which I have heard much good things about. Furthermore there is also the AMEX Centurion Lounge as well. Hopefully, one day I will have a chance to visit them. Frankly speaking, I have not idea why Qantas would want to operate their own lounge here given that Cathay already have such great facilities. The Qantas Business Class Lounge is located right after security on the opposite side of The Wing. Do pay attention to which security side to use if you are visiting any of them in particular. It was open from 7.30am to 11pm. You are able to access with any OneWorld premium ticket or with Oneworld Sapphire status.

A Cathay Present: Cathay Pacific The Deck Lounge

Continuing on my tour in Hong Kong International Airport, and while waiting for my Cabana at The Wing, I made the journey across to The Deck, another Business Class Lounge, it is located near Gate 6, right at the far end of this area. I finally understand why CX need that much lounge in HKIA since the gates are really very far apart. I really love how classy Cathay name it’s lounge, especially their chinese name. 玲瓏堂, how cute it that! It is located a level above the gate area as well which you can easily access via the escalator. It does seems to be much smaller than the other lounges that Cathay have.
