Take on Peking's terminal 2

The only less inspiring than the "artwork" on the walls at the airport Hilton might be the entire feel of terminal 2 at Peking international airport. It's retro in the sense that everything is dark, old and stained and the entire place smells like smoke, so I guess it does have that going for it, but for a country whose goals has been to show the western world that it's open for business, it is shocking that this relic remains. It's like LaGuardia without the charm of a leaky roof, a crappy runway and a never-ending delay. In the US you expect crumbling infrastructure, poorly managed and ridiculously over budgeted rebuilding projects and shitty service but to get that in China is a slap in the face.
