Hong Kong's latest convert

What do you do with an old airport that’s been closed for 15 years because landing a plane amidst mountains and over hugely populated areas on a runway that juts out into the sea one day seemed like a bad idea? You turn it into the Rolls Royce of cruise terminals, of course. Located on the former Kai Tak Airport runway, Hong Kong’s new $1-billion Kai Tak Cruise Terminal recently opened its first phase; the second will open in summer 2014. When all is said and done, it’ll be able to berth two Oasis-class vessels — aka the largest in the world — and move 3000 passengers per hour. Located on the East Kowloon waterfront, the 850-metre-long terminal even features a rooftop garden with striking views of Victoria Harbour.
