Dubai Airport

The first stop-off point on my trip to Korea was Dubai International Airport. I arrived at midnight on a surprisingly pleasant Emirates flight (even in economy class the service was second to none I’ve experienced before). The first thing that hit me was the 36 deg C heat, and this was in the middle of the night! After a short shuttle bus trip, I arrived at the rather incredible terminal building…

Dubai Airport

This has to be the most opulent airport in the world (that I’ve seen at least). It basically consists of a single very long tiered hall with shops and gate entrances on either side (all comfortably air-conditioned). What really enhances it is the clever use of lighting which draws the eye along its length and is especially effective at night. Fit for a Saudi prince I think!
