Few people associate airports with rest and relaxation, but a poll of more than 25,000 travellers by the website Sleepinginairports.net has uncovered the 10 where you're most likely to catch 40 winks
10. Taipei Taoyuan International Airport
The website also has some helpful tips for anyone who finds themselves faced with the prospect of a night in an airport terminal. It suggests carrying an eye mask or sunglasses, ear plugs, bottled water and snacks, a pillow and blanket, and - for the truly dedicated - an inflatable raft or lilo.
9. Stockholm Arlanda International Airport
An alarm clock is also recommended. Or, failing that, "take a pen and some post-it notes. Write a 'Wake me at 5:00 AM' note and stick a few on yourself and the seats around you - it works. People will wake you."
8. Tallinn International Airport
Safety, of course, is paramount. "If you are travelling alone we recommend that you sleep near other travellers," the website says. "Make sure they are actual travellers and not homeless people – it is sometimes hard to tell in certain airports. While there have never been any reports of attacks against airport sleepers, there have been a few bum fondlings. A few iPods and laptops have also gone missing."
7. Tokyo Haneda International Airport
Some airports are incredibly popular among terminal sleepers. "If you are staying at a busy airport overnight, you'll have to get there early if you want a good spot, especially during the summer season," it adds. "Airports such as London Stansted are so popular they can look like refugee camps on an average night."
6. Porto Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport
You may need to be creative. The website suggests sleeping "behind ticket counters, under and behind seats, in wheelchairs and on luggage conveyor belts."
