Incheon International Airport is one of those airports where you do not need to worry about having a layover at. It has been awarded as one of the best airports in the world. There is free hospitality service in the airport. You will be able to find a golf course with seventy-holes and you will be able to find indoor gardens as well. With these things that you can find in the airport, there is no doubt that the Incheon International Airport deserves to be one of the best airports in the world.
Here are some things that you can do at the airport:
1. Experience the traditional culture of the Koreans
Even though you do not have the chance to go to the city and do a little exploring of the Korean culture, do not worry because you can do it right there at the airport. The airport has a cultural museum that visitors can visit. They can also watch traditional music performed at the museum.
2. Massage Treatments
If you’ve been stuck in your plane seat for hours, a nice massage definitely would sound like heaven, wouldn’t it? Drop by the Spa on Air at the Incheon International Airport where you can choose from the many massage options that they offer. They also have a sauna, sleeping rooms, shower booths, snack bars and meeting rooms. What is even better is that the sauna is available 24 hours a day. You can also experience a Korean bathhouse experience here.
This is still part of the facilities of the airport and you only need to ride the free shuttle bus for a five-minute trip to reach this destination. It would be better if you made bookings ahead of time with the golf course though.
4. Kangwon Land
Korean nationals are not allowed to gamble anywhere in Korea except for Kangwon Land which can be found in Korea’s northeastern part, the Kangwon Land. If you are a foreigner living or visting Korea, you have the right to exercise your right to gamble at the Paradise Casino Incheon. You can take the shuttle bus from the airport for a two-minute trip to the casino.
5. See the eco-gardens
Not too many airports have indoor gardens and Incheon International Airport is one of the few airports that have it. And it does not just have one airport but it has seven instead. There is a wide range of plants in the gardens. What’s even better is that you do not have to pay anything to see it and it is always open. So if you have time to spare, feel free to visit these gardens in Incheon.
6. Do some ice skating
You won’t be able to find real ice in the skating rink of the Incheon International Airport. But it does not mean you cannot practice your ice skating skills on the synthetic ice. You only need to spend around $5 USD to get the equipment that you need to get started with ice skating. It opens at ten in the morning until eight in the evening.
