AsiaWorld-Expo  is the largest column free, and perhaps largest, exhibition centre in Hong Kong, boasting over 70,000 cubic meters of space. It plays host to numerous trade shows, meetings, and concerts (at the adjacent AsiaWorld-Arena). It is directly connected to the Airport Express.
This complex allows passengers from Mainland China and Macau to access Hong Kong International Airport by jetfoil or ferry. It is connected via automated people mover that transport passengers to the Airport for connecting flights and vice versa. Architecture firm Aedas designed SkyPier
The SkyCity Nine Eagles Golf Course is a nine holes golfing facility. It has seven Par 3 holes and two Par 4 holes set amidst rolling terrain, undulating greens and extensive bunkering. The Skycity Nine Eagles Golf Course closed down on 30 July 2015. The Airport Authority said the site, part of the airport's north commercial district, would be used to accommodate a hotel with some 1,000 rooms, and retail development of some 200,000 square metres.

Airport Authority Hong Kong announced on 2 May 2018 that New World Development has been awarded the tender for the SKYCITY integrated development which comprises retail complexes, dining areas, hotels, entertainment facilities and offices. Under the agreement, New World Development will design, construct, finance and manage the development on sites A2 and A3, adjacent to HKIA's passenger terminals. SkyCity is scheduled to be opened in phases from 2023 to 2027, it will be one of the largest commercial developments in Hong Kong and will provide a maximum gross floor area of about 3.77 million square feet.
From Airport area
Shuttle buses are the current options of getting around SkyCity without driving a car.
Airport Express, part of the MTR's Airport Express Line, takes only a minute to travel between AsiaWorld-Expo and the Airport. It costs HK$2.5 for Octopus users and HK$5 for others.
Automated People Mover is the current People mover in use at the airport and only operates within the terminal. After completion of SkyCity, the Hong Kong International Airport Automated People Mover will be extended to include Terminal 2 (SkyPlaza) and SkyPier.
From other areas of Hong Kong
Because SkyCity is located at Chek Lap Kok, the island Hong Kong International Airport is on, it is easy to reach from other areas of the territory.
The Airport Express can be taken from Kowloon, Hong Kong, and Tsing Yi stations. In addition, the Tung Chung Line can be taken from Tung Chung to the same stations (plus others) via buses to Tung Chung at a cheaper price than the Airport Express.
The buses that serve the Airport are also options, including the A.21 from Hung Hom in Kowloon, which travels to both the Airport and the AsiaWorld-Expo.
The common taxis that service Kowloon, Hong Kong, and Lantau are the easiest but also perhaps the most expensive way to get to SkyCity.
