If you like airplanes and you have enough time before your departure, you should visit Sky View. From the 1st Terminal there is a free shuttle every 10-20 minutes. Beside an observation terrace, there are some service facilities like shop, coffee shop, restaurant, etc.

Came here to see the atmosphere of the airport and found that this place was amazing. I could take pictures of airplanes, take hyperlapse video of take-off airplane. The observatory hall is also filled with the museum. Such a great place to feel the atmosphere of the airport.

Easy to reach on the free shuttle bus- every 20 minutes from Bus Stop 1 outside the ground floor of the terminal. Cafe and restaurant were closed when I was there because it was at a quiet time.Great place to photograph or video the planes taxiing or taking off.

With several hours free time before my flight, I had exhausted all the airport shops so opted to take the 10 minute free shuttle to Sky View and was not disappointed. There is a museum, shops, children's soft play area and several outdoor viewing floors with large numbers of plane enthusiasts taking photo's etc. Indoors, there is an informative video... More
