    World's best and worst airports

    The World's Worst is People Watchers' Best!


    The Ninoy Aquino International Airpot was recently deemed the worst airport in the world, and understandably so. While grand in design (at least according to 60s aesthetics) the lay out isn't exctly what you'd call smart. There aren't enough chairs to lounge around in, the horrible ineffeciency of the staff makes for a horrible pre-flight experience, there aren't enough shops and restaurants to while away in, and what little there is, the goods are horribly over priced. Don't get me started with the wifi. And I hate the rubber flooring. So dated! So outdated! To think you be paying for all this with airport tax.


    And yet all these things make my hometown's airport a fantastic location to people watch! In my recent trip to Bangkok, I didn't notice the long wait as I stood in line to check-in because there was just so much—I don't know— life going around! People rummaging through their documents, Filipino families in full force sending their loved ones abroad, waiting unless their loved ones have checked in, rearranging overweight baggages, etc.


    It's often been said that airports are some of the best places to watch people and NAIA, I think is the best. No matter how distressing or annoying traveling at NAIA is, you're bound to find something amusing in the world that is NAIA.
