Stayed for 6 hours outside immigration. I recommend going to the lower level where the trains are. Here you will find sufficient 4-wide coushined chair rows (without arms). Best of all this area is far quieter than the upper levels. There is a 7/11 for brews and a subway and other good things. Subway has wifi that they seemingly give you after a purchase (think a cookie). The airport had a wifi but it is paid after 15 minutes and confusing to set up, so best use the computers around the place (ask at information desks) if you have no devices. The main problem with the lower level is that there are no bathrooms, so if you're solo and camping some seats this might be a problem. Food is not amazing, I would recommend sticking to Thai cuisine. Foreign cuisine is more expensive.

Quick Terminal Tips

  • A reader tells us: "WIFI is terrible. They give you a voucher with ID and password. No clear instructions. Most travellers give up. They use a network provider (Wlannet) which has its one commercial signal. So travellers are confused between the free service and the commercial service. Most travellers cannot find the adequate entry point and give up.
