Haikou Airport’s non-domestic terminal consists exclusively of bus gates. As is the case with bus gates all around the world, while you get priority bus boarding, it’s essentially a free-for-all when you get to the gate.

My flight was departing from the North Satellite Terminal, which meant having to spend more time getting to the gate.
