Incheon International Airport: CHECK.

So this is it. Exactly twelve days ago, I set foot on the 2nd World’s Best Airport – you guessed it – the Incheon International Airport (ICN), based on Skytrax 2014 rating.  Incheon International Airport also maintains its rank on Airport’s Council International as the 1st Best Airport Worldwide since 2005 up to 2013.

On board Korean Air chartered flight KE9636, me and the rest of the tourists were all excited as our aircraft touched down the runway. I couldn’t help myself but to keep snapping my camera – the scene was worth capturing! Despite having a not-so-great flight due to turbulent reoccurrence, and plus flying four hours from 2a.m. to 6a.m., I had sufficient energy once I stepped on Korean soil.

At the airport, we were greeted with amazing series of LCD walls that display different highlights of South Korea along with several dynasty exhibits. It didn’t take us long to reach and clear the Immigration. At the arrival area were food chains and restaurants and cafés and kiosks of orchid gardens at the middle. The area was huge but I wasn’t able to roam around like I did at Changi Airport, as I was there in a group and wasn’t supposed to cast myself away. But I’ve heard there are other amenities inside the airport such as SPA and skating rink, and it is the fastest airport in the world when it comes to customs processing.

I want to explore Incheon International Airport – may be next time, who knows?
