It kinda looks like the international terminal at JFK. I like how all the new terminals are so invitingly windowed. The new Terminal 1 at Pearson-Toronto Int'l is nice too (and windowy)!

What do they build a new airport? Is there really a need?

it's really really need... since the old airpor has already reached its full capacity at 30 million passengers per annum ;)

Bangkok has always been a sleeper in that region . . .

its always Hong Kong this, Singapore that, Jakarta this

I know the feeling being between Chicago Philly and New York City

Nice to see Bangkok is stepping up to the plate in a big way :)

I agree with Big City a little on this one. Though each individual concourse dose look nice, and the inside pictures look fabulous, on the whole i'm not that impressed. I'd like to see something a little less plain for the shape. Make it bigger, more curvacious, something.

It's kind of cool how they put random stuff around it though, like the statue and trees. But I kind of agree on it being monotonous. You take one look at those cylindrical steel and glass ceilings/walls, and say Ooohhh Wow!!! Isn't that cool, but sooner or later they will have you searching for more eye candy, which much of it seems to lack. It's kind of nice when some airports break from the repetition and terminals have varying spaces and vistas. But we all know airports are going for efficiency, and that appears to be the primary focus of this structure. Compared to other airports though, this one is really great!

Skytrax say that Hong Kong is the best airport.

2nd. Singapore Changi Airport

3rd. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

4th. Seoul Incheon Airport

5th. Kuala Lumpur KLIA Airport

Why on EARTH is Asterdam on number three? Gawd. They always lose my baggage at that STOOPID airport.

I really like how the new airport in Bangkok looks. Hurray! It's such a holiday destination, Thailand, I'm glad they get a really nice airport to "welcome" the tourists at. They have also added things from thailand into it.
