If you’re a frequent traveler, you’ll know all about the struggle of finding decent food and a place to sit down in an unfamiliar airport. Some airports exist solely to shuttle people from one place to the next, and have seemingly forgotten about the things a human needs to survive, like sunlight, sleep, and food. One can’t live on luxury shopping alone!
Luckily, there are still a few airports around the world that have gone out of their way to make your travel a pleasant experience. Here are a few of the world’s best airports.
Hamad International Airport (DOH) – Doha, Qatar
Hamad International Airport only opened in 2014, but since then has made a name for itself worldwide with its award-winning facilities and amenities. The airport is the second-largest in the region, after Dubai International Airport, and was built on over 8.5 square miles, half of which is made up of reclaimed land artificially created out of the seabed of the Persian Gulf.
The whole airport is oasis themed, and features rolling architecture with plenty of live desert plants floating in small pools. Airport officials are already contemplating building an additional terminal to support the increased traffic during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
