Makes you sleepy just writing about it.
2. Seoul Incheon
"We moved two seats next to each other and had enough sleeping room for three people," writes Phtraveler of Seoul Incheon.
Travelers also loved the traditional dance performances, the site says -- although whether as a substitute for Valium isn't recorded.
1. Singapore Changi Airport
The dormouse's favorite, Singapore Changi, wins top spot for the 17th year in a row.
Could that be because Changi extends Singapore's no-nonsense approach to law and order -- including banning chewing gum and arresting spitters -- to relaxation?
"Silence is mandatory in the snooze lounge," says one SleepinginAirports survey respondent approvingly.
Changi's six rest zones, with special reclining deep seats, seem to be the icing on the dream cake here.
Worst airports for sleeping and overall experience
Editor's note: The original version of this story misidentified Sleepinginairports' "Worst Airports for Sleeping" list with its "Worst Airports for Overall Experience" list, the latter of which also includes a "sleeping" component. The error has been corrected. The site was also originally identified as 16 years old rather than 17, as is correct, and Amsterdam Schiphol has been corrected as a new entry in the site's top three, rather than top five.
If airports like Changhi sound so relaxing you might actually enjoy missing that connecting flight, other big plane garages make it clear, according to SleepinginAirports, that R & R aren't complimentary services.
Sleepinginairports' uses two lists to rank the airports on the low end of the scale. There's the Worst Airports for Sleeping list and, summarized below, the site's list of Worst Airports for Overall Experience.

4. Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Islamabad
"Upright plastic lumbar-devastating 'chairs' add to your foul mood after negotiating the carnage to actually end up in the departure lounge," says Col. Stewart with impressive spleen.
3. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, Kolkata
"We slept sitting up. The lights remained on all night and we had to don our jackets (in India?) because of the AC."
You can almost see Mur the Explorer's drawn, sleep-deprived face as he writes that.
2. Bergamo Orio al Serio Airport (Italy)
"There is [only] a small cafe open 24 hours ... The chapel is not 24 hours any more ... A group of drunk people hung around screaming and swearing," are some of bielvoda's desperate-sounding notes from a night's stay.
1. Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Terminal 1)
You're more likely to get some sleep at a jack hammering competition than at this airport, according to SleepinginAirports voters.
