Winner: Hong Kong International Airport

It came third in this category last year but has beaten Changi airport in Singapore to nab the top spot. Lots of factors were involved - top food, shopping and the friendliness of staff - but the biggest advantage is the super speedy train that runs from the base of the airport straight into downtown Hong Kong.
Great for a spot of handbag shopping and cold beers if you have a long transit.

I like that airport except for one detail.

Which is?

It is so well laid out as soon as you approach the inside of the airport you understand the set up

Guangzhou is not a patch

Heathrow for newbies, you need a sat nav in there

Doesn't have anything to do with the layout,
(besides, what is supposedly so difficult with LHR?,
don't get it)
I have never been in civillian life been aimed at with a firearm,
around europe(except italy) or in mainland china, or in vietnam or in....
in no democratic and in no communist country,

but in HK Airport some security in the hall patroled with gun point even in view direction.

please, I can't remember holding an MP in that position as normal non combat position.
as normal. Barrel either up or down, please.

I didn't like that moment when they looked at me for a second,
meaning the barrel also pointed at me.

Other than that, yes, HK is a damn well designed airport.

And Heathrow is like a Boot fair on a Sunday morning, I have flown from there dozens of times so I know the drill and can walk past all the mayhem.
Firearm is life these days all over the World Heathrow Cops carry them yes
