While visiting airports generally means a sterile and boring experience, there are some airports that go above and beyond to make sure people enjoy their time waiting at the terminal. This is especially important for those travelling with children who may find a multitude of ways to get into trouble when facing several hours sitting in a terminal. In order to track down some of these lifesaving airports I spoke with the online travel company JustFly. They provided me with their top three airport attractions.
Seoul, South Korea
The first stop according to JustFly’s Review is Seoul, South Korea’s Incheon International Airport. This airport features a built in ice-skating rink and an area they call The ice Forest. This beautifully decorated rink allows you to get some exercise, blow off some steam, and, ideally, tire out your kids before catching your departing flight. If you are thinking “how do I get skates through security”, don’t worry, they offer rentals of skates and the other fixings to make sure you can get out on the ice and skate your heart out.
When you think about an airport you probably think rows of benches, screens, and white walls. Not at Sepang’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport. This airport features a peaceful jungle boardwalk complete with plants, trees, and a large waterfall. No doubt a great place to get some zen before a long flight and entertain the kids.
Whether or not reading is your thing, Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport’s massive library may be a treat if you are sick of counting floor tiles or chasing your kids around. The library features over 1,200 books for you to peruse and read. The kicker? These books are available in up to 29 languages, meaning it doesn’t matter where you are from, you’ll probably find a great book for either you or your kids to pass the time. Lastly, the airport itself is home to a rotating show of art exhibits, another good way to kill some time before takeoff.
