Strike a Pose at These Top 10 Airport Locations for an Impromptu Photo Shoot

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2016) - The excitement of a vacation starts at the airport, so why shouldn't the photo fun? Airports are outdoing each other with terminals jammed with elaborate amenities -- think butterfly gardens, aquariums, even golf courses -- where you can while away the hours before your flight. And what better way to capture your complete travel adventure than snapping some shots in front of some of these show-stopping attractions, especially when they serve up an eye-catching bit of local color. The experts at, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, have scouted locations to come up with their Top 10 Airports for an Impromptu Photo Shoot. Grab your friends or your selfie stick and say cheese!

Here are five of our favorite airports for iconic layover selfies:

  • Denver International Airport, Denver, Colorado - Denver International Airport's art and culture program features 30 works, including sculptures and murals. Part of the airport's permanent art collection, "Art Chronicles" by Alex Sweetman is a photo series based on the construction of the airport. There are seven gigantic photo murals chronicling the airport's development installed in the east and west ends of the C gates that make great backdrops for documenting your visit to Denver.

  • Incheon Airport, Seoul, South Korea - A roving procession of costume-clad performers at Incheon Airport is too irresistible to not Instagram. The royal procession, a costumed group of performers reenacting the royal family from the Joseon Dynasty, walks around the Duty Free area, third floor passenger terminal and Korean Cultural Street located in the passenger terminal four times a day. If you miss the group, take a stroll along the Korean Cultural Street, which features replicas of giwa (traditional tiled roof houses) and jeongja (pavilions) on the fourth floor of the passenger terminal.

  • Chiangi Airport, Singapore - From the Butterfly Garden on levels two and three in Terminal 3 in the departure transit lounge to the rooftop swimming pool on level three in Terminal 1 in the departure lounge near the D gates, there are seemingly endless options for photo ops at Singapore Chiangi Airport. Our favorite spot is the Sunflower Garden with 500 beautiful sunflowers grown in Changi Airport's very own nursery on level three of the departure transit lounge in Terminal 2.

  • Vancouver International Airport, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada - Thanks to its pre-security location, the interactive Public Observation Area at Vancouver International Airport is a popular attraction for both travelers and the general public. Located on level 4 of the domestic terminal, the Public Observation Area is not only a fun place to pass the time, but an ideal spot to take dramatic photos of the airport at work and the beauty of Sea Island through massive floor-to-ceiling windows.

  • Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, Amsterdam, Netherlands - Located at Terminal 3 at Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, the House of Tulips is an architectural wonder that is as fun to admire as it is to pose in front of. The awe-inspiring structure represents two iconic Dutch structures: a typical town-house façade and a ubiquitous greenhouse. To the delight of travelers, the giant green glass house lifts up via a hydraulic system at the start of each day to reveal a bustling and colorful flower market beneath.

With backdrops ranging from futuristic architecture to a kinetic sculpture to tranquil gardens, here are five more selfie-worthy airports: Dubai International Airport, United Arab Emirates; Wellington Airport, Wellington, New Zealand; Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois; Beijing Capital International Airport, Beijing China; and Hamad International Airport, Qatar.
