Better than Barbie Dolls...





I love "No Frills" airport. The newly opened Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Vietnam is a good example. For a start, checking in and out is a bliss. At least the immigration officers do not ask stupid questions such as: "What are you doing here?", "Why the photo not same?", "What you give me?"...etc In addition, they do not ask you to remove your shoes, belt, laptop...and mobile, keys, coins in a separate basket....etc Once in Singapore...I was informed to check in 3 hours earlier on the eve of my departure because some "high flying" ministers will be on board. On the actual day...we have two thorough search by over-zealous officers. Once was at the checking in counter...they opened up ALL your bags...going thru EVERY items within. Next...at the waiting area...another round of humiliating assault.
While waiting for my flight...I had a cuppa at the cafe. "A brilliant idea to showcase the local handicrafts!" I thought. One feet tall figurines were placed on tables depicting the locals engaging in different trades. They look real...better than airhead Barbie Dolls!

As many awards as Changi Airport gets, I have never liked it that much. Maybe Tan Son Nhat is more my kind of airport?

Thanks for being a faithful visitor to my site :)
