Dubai International Airport

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

As with many things in Dubai, the Dubai International Airport is a man-made wonder. Instead of rushing to baggage claim to jostle fellow travelers for your luggage, marvel at this airport’s chrome construction, gold and marble accents, palm tree-lined avenues and luxury, duty-free boutiques. This is home to the biggest airport terminal in the world, complete with 157 elevators, 97 escalators, 82 moving walkways and over 98,000 yards of baggage belts, handling 15,000 items per hour.
