I saw a few of the local chinese passengers enter the black flaps where the luggage comes out from. A short while later, they emerged with their luggages, dusted themselves and moved off. - unknown

I arrived here at around 10:30pm and had a early morning flight to catch to Guiyang. I decided to sleep at the airport as it would be useless to go to the hotel for just a few hours.

There is a lot of legit seating/sleeping space at the food court (located below the departures area) where a traveler can spend overnight. On the way, there will be a few touts (pretending to be officials) telling you to book a hotel. Ignore them.

The seats are plenty but don't seem so conducive to sleeping (many soundly sleeping Chinese will disagree). A sleeping bag perhaps might be a good idea as there is enough space.

I had a good paid wifi connection (Boingo) in that area to video chat with my wife the entire night. There is a way to get free wifi at the departures area if you have a local/roaming mobile number.

All of the Restaurants there were closed at around 11:00pm. There is a 'Zhen Gongfu' restaurant at the Arrivals W2 which is open for 24 hours and where a decent meal can be had for 20-30 RMB (Basic Mandarin or sign-language skills needed to place an order). There is also a 24-hours KFC at Arrivals W1 (but, I like to eat healthy when traveling so didn't bother).

In the waiting area at the food court, there are 2 toilets badly in need of refurbishment, but at least they get constantly cleaned.

Over the night, while trying to get some sleep on the uncomfortable chairs, my biggest peeve were 3 African travelers deciding to discuss their life-problems/business ventures at a Opera-singing volume.
