Excellent Decision!

by kcdavis711 (February, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: Kind guards, and lots of spots to strech out
Cons: not open 24 hours

They are not open 24 hours, but close from I think midnight until 4 or 5 in the morning. I had gotten in at 1:30AM on a bus with a flight out at 9am so I decided to just sleep at the airport. Even though the guard couldn't let me in, I slept just outside, in a well let area near the door. The guard was very friendly and kept an eye on me, he even came out and lit a misquito coil for me! I felt safe. Then once the doors opened, I moved to one of several decent sleeping spots in the main lobby. I slept so well, I woke up to the lobby full of travelers!

It's possible to sleep there but...

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Normally empty during the night. Free Internet.
Cons: Noisy and cold.

It's possible to sleep in the airport. It's not forbidden by the government!! They let you sleep in the Main Lobby, before the check in counters. But it's noisy and cold. The good thing is that there are less people during the night so you can find your place and charge your devices. Free WiFi but it's necesary to log in every 15 minutes...

Pros: Best cappucino in all of Myanmar

It was impossible to sleep in theis ariport as they closed it. Although once through the check in point there is a small internet cafe that has the best cappucinos in all of Myanmar.

Don't even go there!

Don't even think about passing a night at the Yangon Int'l Airport, because they don't let you stay at the airport overnight. The security guards kick you out from the airport before 10pm. The airport close during the night time. I had an early morning flight with Air Asia, so I decided to stay at the airport for the night before. I got to the airport by 7pm, but around 10pm I get kicked out from the airport by the airport security guards. I begged to stay at the airport, but the airport officials said that 'it's forbidden by the government'. I stayed overnight at over 20 airports, but I've never get kicked out from the airport. This was the first time ever, and never happened since. So don't even think about going there at night! You'll end up coming back to the city. (They don't even let you stay outside of the airport!) I hate the g continued >>

Unexpected delight

Last month I was in Yangon International Airport and it was very clean, very new, not at all crowded (probably owing to recent political unrest stemming some international arrivals) and probably one of the best airports I've been to in Asia in this respect. It is a little lacking in amenities such as cafes et cetera, and I very seriously doubt you would be able to sleep there as they take their security quite seriously. The domestic terminal, which used to serve as international terminal is pretty much what you would expect, run down, bit dirty, and the porters will try to grab your bags as you go through - but it does have a great cafe.
