Singapore – Changi International Airport
As far as great airports go you’d probably expect a regular busy airport with a few things to do. No. Singapore has really outdone everyone. Prepare to have your mind blown but remember this is an AIRPORT. Inside you can discover a rooftop bar, butterfly garden, FREE cinema, a waterfall and a giant slide. But this isn’t it, there are snooze lounges, places to feed fish and a butterfly garden. Terminal 3 has been voted has one of the best in the world for years and we don’t need to wonder why. The airport sounds like a day out itself so we can only imagine how sad you’d be if you were only around for 10 minutes.
Switzerland – Zurich Airport
The best airport in the world to get bargains at duty-free is Zurich Airport. It is the only airport in the world where you can see the pilots working away in the cockpit on a special observation deck. There are also places to hire sports equipment so you can explore outside the airport. On top of this, there are also 2 large shopping centres with plenty of shops, over 60 restaurants and cafes to splash some cash and that’s even before you’ve left the airport.
Amsterdam – Schipol Airport
Although this airport only has one terminal, it is an ultra-modern experience at this great airport. There are delicious restaurants, a museum to discover, XpresSpa and a Casino! You’ll think that you’re in the tourist hotspot of Amsterdam but this is one of the best international airports that is very small but has a lot to offer.
