Although Northeast Asia is only composed of 6 countries, namely, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Mongolia, Taiwan, and China, it has a total of more than 300 airports. The remarkable number of airports is no wonder as Northeast Asia is one of the progressive and interesting region in terms of tourism.
We are citing at least 65 important international airports in Northeast Asia for you so you can have more idea on how these airports look like and what are the tourist spots you can visit near these airports once the COVID lockdown is lifted. Unfortunately, wikipedia only gives you the list of airports. It does not show you recent pictures about the airport nor advice places you can visit after landing in that airport. We merged sources we got from wikipedia, instagram and tripadvisor making this blog unique. This will be a digital tour and I hope you enjoy the content we worked on for two days. We cannot travel physically right now due to the COVID pandemic but we can definitely travel digitally!
