Please note that some published services and schedules may be subject to change. If the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are about to board.
Spending the night at the airport

A busy airport without many amenities. In particular, the number of seats available is not sufficient for the flow of passengers. Dress comfortably and bring a jacket or jumper, as temperatures at the airport can vary.

Where to rest: Foreigners are only allowed to spend 3 hours inside the terminal, and then must go to the airport transit hotel. Domestic residents wishing to spend the night on the premises will be directed to a designated area on the boarding level. There are also some 24-hour VIP lounges that offer greater comfort and privacy.

Baggage: There are no luggage storage facilities within the airport.

Eating and drinking: 24-hour options in the shopping mall. Note that some places may close overnight.

Restrooms: Showers are only available in the VIP lounges, but not in the public toilets.

Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
