Best Airports in the World

Beijing Airport ... one of the nicest I have been in.

This week we would like to present you with a list of the best airports in the world, courtesy of Skytrax. First off, it is unfortunate to note that no US airports made the list this year. In fact, the top award in North America actually goes to our neighbor up north in Vancouver (YVR).

Having flown through many of these airports, I can attest that a few are actually quite a destination in itself. For example, did you know that there is a 9-hole golf course at the Hong Kong International Airport, or a world class museum at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport? You will actually want to arrive 3 hours early so that you can shop, dine, and enjoy all the amenities these airports have to offer!
