I don’t mind coming to this airport WAY before my flight because there are so many things to do! Ok, maybe not like the airport in Korea. LoL. Still though… there are so many interesting shops before you go through security so be sure to check those out! If you forgot to buy something while you were traveling, you’ll probably find it here! Oh, and if you forgot to eat something, they probably have it here too! LoL.”

Pretty much as smooth and efficient as an airport can get. I highly recommend visiting Lawsons before you go through the security checkpoints. Its the last place you can score one of their fantastic egg salad sandwiches and any of the other many goodies available there.”

Nice, clean, and efficient! Surprisingly quiet and empty though, at least in the international terminal. Took less than 10 minutes for a family of 5 to get out of Customs. It is about an hour and a half to get I to the city though depending on where you’re staying. Their bus and rail systems are plentiful and efficient – best way to get where you need to go.”
