I have two lists of my personal favourite airports.
Fun to fly in to / out of
Facilities and so on.

My 3 favourites to fly in and out of.

1) Kai Tak (HK's old airport).  Landing there many times in the jumpseat on the flight deck brought a whole new perspective to engrossing.

2) Lukla airport Nepal.  Extremely dangerous to fly in to, was the world's most dangerous airport for over 20 years.  White knuckle ride both in and out.

3) Tied between Tehran Mehrabad and Kansai International Airport (Osaka, Japan). Really enjoyable to land at and take off from.

Facilities and enjoyment of facilities:

1) Tahiti Fa'a'ā  - Small, friendly and quick to get in and out of.

2) Bangkok (1960s) Small, quiet and enjoyable. The new airport terminals aren't too bad either.

3) Narita (Tokyo), tied with Sydney (Kingsford Smith), Vancouver and Smithers (BC Canada, domestic).

Obviously you are more used to moving around in a shabby cramped airport in your home country.
Believe it or not, it's true.
