Other than its well-known urban jungle, Hong Kong has another side: a beautiful natural environment of real forests and foothills, shorelines and seascapes that is full of amazing wildlife and breathtaking landscapes.

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has pledged to make HKIA one of the world's greenest airports. Many "Green" elements and initiatives could be found on the airport island.

AAHK is now inviting the airport community to join the HKIA Green Photo Competition. Why not pick up your camera and explore the beauty and wonders of Hong Kong's nature, or capture the HKIA's green features and initiatives.
