Since its opening in 2001, the Inchon International Airport (ICN) has ranked among the best airports in the world.  It has received the 5-Star rating from Skytrax, a ranking shared with Singapore Changi Airport and Hong Kong International Airport.

The airport shares many modern design features such as exposed trusses, vaulted ceilings, and exposed columns.  The only uninteresing area of the airport is the check-in area, which is rather ordinary and simple.  However everything changes once you clear immigration.  Then the true beauty of the airport shines through.

It’s design has more in common with the Hong Kong International Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport than Singapore Changi or Bangkok’s Suvannabhumi International Airport.  Singapore Changi is more conservative in design; Bangkok’s airport is edgier.
