In my travels abroad in the last three years, I’ve gone thru dozens of airports and only a few of them are really what I could call “blogger-friendly”. I think airports should have free wifi as part of their standard service to travelers.
So which airports are really blogger friendly? My top picks are Hong Kong International Airport and Changi International Airport in Singapore.
The Hong Kong Int’l Airport has free wifi all over the place, has a number of easily accessible power sockets for plugging your laptop and the departure gates are also open so you can surf all you want before boarding. There are also computer kioks with broadband internet you can use if you don’t have a laptop.
On second is Changi Airport in Singapore with free wifi but not so many places to plug in your laptops. The Wireless @ SG service now require visitors to sign up before getting the wifi service (the registration form though is confusing — couldn’t figure out the format for the required mobile number field). The departure gates are also separated from the shops via security gates. There are quite a number of PC kiosks around with internet.
The NAIA 2 terminal could have made it as a runner up had their so-called free wifi was working. At least, they now have that exclusive desk for laptop-users to use for re-charging. There are about 5 PC kiosks (probably sponsored by Samsung) which promises free internet use (though there was none when I tried using them).
I remember theÂ Soekarno-HattaÂ JakartaÂ InternationalÂ Airport also had free wifi but power plugs are sparse. TheÂ SuvarnabhumiÂ Airport in Thailand is also nice but free wifi is spotty. To the frequent blogger travelers out there, which other airports do you think are blogger-friendly?
