Travelers do more than stop to smell the roses. When it comes to the following airports, many also stop to snap off a picture and post it to their respective Instagram accounts.
Taking into account those airports that are most readily tagged within the app, the post highlights those locations that garner such interest that travelers would think to stop and document the experience.
Chief Flights Officer at Wego Dean Wicks, via the blog post, also offers insight into the various airports to give you a sense of the grandeur that leads to so many social media snapshots.
Here is the rundown according to Wego.com with images we spotted on Instagram.
Changi Airport - Singapore
Wicks explains: “Singapore’s Changi Airport is supremely popular with Instagrammers, regularly presenting travellers with innovative installations, rooftop sunflower gardens and annual festival celebrations for Christmas and Chinese New Year.”
Suvarnabhumi Airport - Bangkok
As noted, the airport is astonishing when you first traipse its massive halls, offering dramatic views that get you in the right mood for the holiday.
Los Angeles International Airport
It’s easy to see why anyone would quickly take out their smartphone and begin photographing the area the minute they touchdown in Los Angeles. The city teems with attractions and, who knows, the possibility of a celebrity getting off their own plane.
Heathrow Airport - London
Heahtrow garners a bustling mass of travelers giddy to enjoy all that London has to offer. It also helps that Hollywood has featured the airport a few times in its glorious history.
Wicks chimes in: “Some of Sydney’s stunning skyline, warm sunrises, the ‘G’day, Welcome Home’ sign upon arrival, and a few of the spectacularly designed Qantas First Class Lounge are a feature.”
Hamad International Airport - Doha
There you have it, folks.
That adorable and enormous bear is the reason many stop and wonder at how snug they might feel if they could curl up with it. It’s also a reason so many tag this airport in their posts.
John F Kennedy Airport - New York
Like New York itself, the airport offers a resplendent list of exciting attractions, which includes what could be your last Shake Shack meal before you depart.
Haneda Airport - Tokyo
Wicks concludes things by offering the following: “Tokyo’s Haneda Airport’s enormous Market Place in Terminal 2 is heavily featured, its curvy designs and striking architecture a big hit with passengers. The traditional Japanese-styled Edo-Koji shopping area in the International terminal and Japanese culinary delights in the departure lounge are also popular tags.”
We so often overlook airports as a viable use of our travel time, quickly stepping off the plane and rushing out into the open city, ignoring what very well might be some stunning architecture or truly unforgettable experiences.
