For many people airports are a nightmare – long queues when you check in and go through security and an even longer wait if your flight is delayed. But there are some airports where you can actually enjoy yourself. All good airports have excellent facilities for business people and children, free Wi-fi, restaurants, cafés, and shops. But the best airports have much more.

If you like computer games, you’ll never be bored at Hong Kong international airport – there are dozens of free Playstations all over the terminals! It’s also good for people with no sense of direction – there are ‘Airport Ambassadors’ in red coats, who help you to get from one place to another. Another unusual airport is located in Singapore. This airport has a rooftop swimming pool and a free sight-seeing tour for people who have at least five hours to wait for their connecting flight.
