Skytrax has released the results of its annual World Airport Awards and, once again,Singapore’s Changi Airport has taken the top spot.

It’s no surprise that Changi came out on top again. The international transit hub has incredible amenities, such as a butterfly garden, rooftop pool, movie theaters, hotels, spas, and showers — and even a four-storey slide.

Vancouver International was the only Canadian airport to make the global top 10 list. At 18-million passengers a year, it’s the least busiest hub, but it offers visitors an impressive collection of Pacific Northwest native art.

Skytrax also named Vancouver International the Best Airport in North America for the fourth year in a row in 2013, a streak that justifies the $1.4 billion that the airport spent on a recent expansion. It also ranked top for staff. Volunteers, known as green coat ambassadors, help travellers get to where they’re going.

In the top 10 best North American airports, Toronto’s Pearson took 5th place and Halifax’s Stanfield took 7th place, beating out New York’s JFK airport.
