Hong Kong International Airport

7 of 12

Located on the man-made island of Hong Kong Harbour, this two-terminal airport packs a serious punch. All of the work-related facilities and services one could demand are here, but it's really the extras that keep play-hard types happy during long layovers. Namely, the outdoor nine-hole regulation golf course, the world's first airport IMAX theater and the iSports simulator for car racing and basketball. Outposts of Michelin-starred and other restaurants such as Hung's Delicacies, Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop and Thai Chiu are worth a visit when hunger strikes. For the ultimate in relaxation, pony up the $50-plus fee for a pass to one of two super-sleek Traveler's Lounges, outfitted with a bar and showers. Tip: The Regal Airport Hotel, connected to T1, has been named World's Best Airport Hotel two years running by Skytrax. hongkongairport.com
