Are these the world’s scariest landing strips? The airport approaches so terrifying even pilots will think twice (16)

Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, has a golf course right next to its planes (pictured) where golfers could walk off the green and straight onto the tarmac

It seems obvious that airports need plenty of room for planes to manoeuvre but some have an unusual number of hazards in their proximity.

Princess Juliana International Airport in Sint Maarten and Gustaf III Airport in Saint Barthélemy are notoriously close to tourist beaches. When a plane flies overhead, they often seem close enough to touch.

Similarly, Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, is close enough to a golf course that golfers can simply walk straight off the green and onto the tarmac.

At Manakara Airport in Madagascar and Gisborne Airport in New Zealand, the runway is intercepted by a railway line.

It's one case where you definitely don't want to get the schedule wrong.
