So we're back in the States! Yay!
We flew from Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu International Airport to Seoul, Incheon Airport, then to Dallas then Pensacola this trip. It's my first trip using this route. I am definitely thankful for my mom coming back with me, because this time around, lil Peanut was definitely more of a handful and with some bad luck, we didn't get the bulkhead seats so we had to hold him for 12 hours from Seoul to Dallas. Thanks AA.
The last time I was in Korea was in 2011. Gosh, didn't realize that was ages ago!
Incheon Airport has won 11 consecutive years of Airport Quality Service Awards. So then it should definitely be less painful to have a 10 hour layover there.
We arrived at 6am local time. So we took our time finding the directory and mapping out what we wanted to do.
Incheon airport has world class shopping, and we decided to skip that till we were clean and rested. We had 10 hours to spare so might as well make the most of it.
We headed to the Skyhub Lounge which we paid $24 per person for 3 hours. Children under 10 have free entry.
Wifi is free throughout the airport anyway, but in the Skyhub you get exclusivity without sharing with the tens of thousands of people going in and out of the airport.
There are computer services as well were you could use the computer to log in, and a printer for your printing needs.
The rooms are regularly sanitized and they even had disinfectants for before and after play. It definitely took me a lot to not wipe him down every 5 minutes, thinking about the amount of germs that might be there. I am trying to let kids be kids and just let him be, for now.
Then of course, we went shopping. Duh.
Incheon has a world class shopping area from their Departures, Arrivals and Transfers. Ranging from International name brands of accessories, cosmetics, fashion, etc to the Korean brands that we know and love.
I couldn't help myself and bought my fair share. More on my haul in my next post.
Did we spend too much time at the Duty Free shops that if our husbands were there, they might whine? Sure.
Would want to do this again? Maybe.
Now they just need to figure out how to get the airport experience in the air so that the following 14 hours to Dallas wouldn't suck as bad.
