Vancouver International

Vancouver International is one of the most highly rated airports in North America, and it’s the only airport on the continent to crack the top 10 of the latest annual Skytrax airport ranking. For culture-lovers, spending a couple of hours looking at the expansive collection of art made by native peoples from the Pacific Northwest is an attractive proposition. There are also some impressive stained glass window installations. The airy terminal building has plenty of natural light, so you won't be stewing under florescent lights during your layover.
