Being stuck at an airport during a long layover is not something many travelers look forward to. Just thinking about what to do in a place where there are few options for activities or entertainment to make to make the wait time more bearable. Luckily, there are a good number of airports across the globe that make layovers less of a pain than they used to, especially for those who have to spend several hours at the airport with nothing much to see or do.
If you are traveling somewhere with a long layover at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei, worry not. The airport, which is the busiest in the country, has plenty of amenities for travelers who have a long wait ahead of them. There are comfortable seats where you can just rest or take a nap during your wait. Staying overnight at the airport is also not a problem. Just make sure that you grab a bite before the restaurants close at midnight.
