Three luxury airports

From Luxury Listings NYC: The worlds most opulent airports are so nice they’ve become destinations of their own. Take, for example, the “world’s cleanest,” South Korea’s Incheon International Airport which offers free showers in the hotel-style bathrooms, a museum, golf course (we suspect the ninth hole is in the baggage claim area and it is a doozy), a casino and ice-skating rink.

As if those perks are not high-flying enough, Changi International Airport in Singapore boasts a selfie-addicts dream: the Social Tree — surrounded by eight interactive booths made from 32-inch televisions with touch screens so you can narcissistically bore your Facebook friends. To destress before and after flights, travelers can take a dip in the compound’s rooftop pool, get some “serenity now” viewing Koi ponds or walk through 5 indoor gardens “which require maintenance from 11 full-time horticulturists.” [more]
