No airport wants to be boring, but some are definitely better than others. Many airports around the world have invested heavily in improvements to increase customer satisfaction.

According to the people of simple flightThese are the The 5 best airports in the world for stopovers this year:

5) Atlanta, Georgia – Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL)

ATL is the second largest business airport on the planet serving as a primary hub for Delta. In fact, there are more than 180 gates in all.

Due to the large number of people passing through, this airport is an excellent option to enjoy a stopover with some southern hospitality.

Like many major airports, it can be nerve wracking to find your way to the gate. Some airports offer an above ground trolley from terminal to terminal.

ATL does things a bit differently. A train will take passengers through underground tracks that connect many of its terminals.

Each terminal houses different restaurants and food courts, as well as at least 200 stores. If you are too tired to go shopping, you can reserve a MinuteSuite for a nap

4) Hong KongHong Kong International Airport (HKG)

Hong Kong is a very futuristic city and its airport reflects its reputation. This place is definitely not your average airport!

Sure, you can hang out at Starbucks like your average Joe if you want, but why do that when you can virtually shop and try on clothes through magical mirrors?

If that’s not your thing, this immaculate airport is also home to its own iMax cinema and iSports simulator to pass the time before your next flight.

If you have a full day, the airport subway offers direct transport to Hong Kong Disneyland in less than 30 minutes.

3) Munich, GermanyMunich International Airport (MUC)

Munich is a gorgeous city that doesn’t seem to get enough love compared to other popular European destinations.

It’s a great place to visit year-round, but many come for its delicious Christmas markets to kick off the holiday season.

Fortunately, for those who are just passing through, they won’t have to leave the airport to do so. The facilities have your own Christmas marketice rink, carousel and vendors selling mulled wine and delicious chocolates.

But if it’s not the holiday season yet, you can pass the time playing miniature golf or enjoying a movie at the on-site theater.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Munich if it didn’t have its own beer garden and beer garden, too. If the drink makes you sleepy, you can book one snap.

2) amsterdam, netherlandsAmsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS)

Amsterdam is a worthy destination in its own right, but due to its central location in Europe, passengers often don’t leave the airport.

There have been many changes over a century; that’s how long AMS has been around.

Visitors will find a wide variety of places to eat, but more than that, plenty of ways to keep busy. Of course, you can sit down and scroll through TikTok like in many airports, but here in Amsterdam, you can peruse an art museum with paintings by world-renowned artists, like Van Gogh.

For a more relaxing feeling, AMS has an indoor park where you can relax and enjoy the sounds of nature or go for a bike ride with unique bikes that charge your phone while you ride.

1) Dubai, United Arab EmiratesDubai International Airport (DXB)

Anyone who has been to Dubai should not be surprised that it has the best airport in the world for layovers.

The UAE goes above and beyond for travelers. As the main attraction of its country, the Dubai airport is the first impression of this impressive city and it does not disappoint.

The shopping options are endless, with name brand stores like Tiffany, Chanel and Hugo Boss. You also don’t want to leave duty free shops, even if it’s just to « window shop ».

Dubai caters to long layovers with helpful amenities like a 24-hour gym with pool, outdoor gardens for fresh air, and cozy, soundproof sleeping pods to do your best to beat jet lag.

@melanincurator This is the first time I’ve had such a long layover where I’m alone so to pass the time I had to explore a bit 😭 and if this is the airport I can’t imagine what the shops are like outside. #viajestiktok #international student #for you #dubai🇦🇪 ♬ Sticky – Drake
