Plans are in the works to build an “air city” on the grounds at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport, USA Today reports. The complex, aimed at grabbing a bigger share of in-transit passengers in the region, could apparently include apartments, studios and runways for in-house fashion designers, a theme park, a marina and a clinic designed for medical tourists. Anyone else smell a sequel to The Terminal?

OK, I’m biased as I already love Korea, but why not build something other than the usual drab hotels around the airport? South Korea is a great place to stop over for a couple of days anyway, as it’s so tiny and well served by public transport that you can see mountains, palaces, islands etc easily. But I rattle on about this all the time :-) Follow me on Twitter @CoolstuffKorea for things to do!
