APAD 139: Waiting

This is one of the waiting areas at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand. It was a quiet time when I took this photo as I was waiting for a very early morning flight to Kathmandu. My travels are only limited to Asia, so far, but let me just say that this airport is one of the flashiest airports I have ever been to.

Massive, delicate and modern.

Suvarnabhumi International Airport is one of the largest hubs in Asia. Millions of passengers come and go through this airport notice the massive glass and steel structure with a sleek, modern design. On the top photo, the yellow triangular-shaped object is some kind of a stupa.Other signs plastered on the glass rails are also in yellow. The colour stands out for everyone to see, even if the hall is filled with people.

I love airports, they fascinate me. I love the frenzy. The sounds. The United Nations-esque feeling when you meet people of different nationalities and brush shoulders with. And I like people watching. In airports.  And make up stories about them inside  my head. But this crazy hobby aside, I am also fascinated with airports. In the system(s) that they operate. I wonder about what goes on  behind the scene, so to speak. From the control towers, aircraft maintenance, passengers, luggages and most importantly, food (catering)! And oh, this airport is also a haven for shoppers.
