To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Kengtung Airport.

What to Expect

  • Not much information is available about this airport. However, we hear reports that Kengtung Airport is very small and rustic single-terminal airport, with a heavy military presence and almost no amenities.
  • Bring a few snacks and beverages and a book or magazines for something to do while you wait for your flight.

Where to Sleep

  • Overnight stays are not permitted in this airport. Do not accept invites from locals to spend the night, as this may invite unwelcome police intervention.
  • For safety and uninterrupted sleep, an overnight stay in a hotel is your best bet! See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
