WORST: Gonggar Airport, Lhasa Tibet

The airport itself is okay, it's just the location that sucks. The airport is 96kms from Lhasa, which is 3,650 metres above sea level. Not too pleasant for altitude sickness. Add to this, the wind & dust.
When I flew out of Gonggar, it was the first time I've fallen asleep whilst a plane was ascending.

singapore's changi is the best.
kuala lumpur is catching up, never been to hong kong's new airport, but i heard it's one of the best too.

i managed in about an hour and a quarter last may, my flight from LA to heathrow was four hours late so my next flight to edinburgh was a mad rush. i got them to check my bags so they went straight to edinburgh but they did lose them! I made my flight but it was a rush. Good luck!! also depends on customs if you have to go through security or if it's a connecting flight?
