This is the reason why I always ask for a window seat when hopping on a plane. What an amazing view! Those views beat any inflight entertainment system, just look out of the window and be awed. Some of the best window views are those of the Grand Canyon, Sydney Harbour, the Pacific, New York and the Swiss Alps. My absolute number one view used to be the approach and landing at Hong Kong’s former airport Kai Tak which was a truly spectacular experience. Unfortunately the airport closed and the new airport Chek Lap Kok is a whole lot less exciting. What is your favorite window view destination?
