According to CNN, Sleepinginairports surveyed 14,600 passengers to rate airports according to four sleep-related criteria, namely comfort, convenience, cleanliness and customer service.

The world's best airport for the much needed sleep is the 17th time winner in a row, Singapore's Changi Airport where 'by rule' silence is mandatory in snooze lounge, and there are six rest zones with special reclining deep seats, followed by Seoul's Incheon.

Amsterdam's Schipol Airport scores the top third position for its comfortable couches, a museum and a forest-like area between Departures 3 and 4 complete with nature sounds.

Hong Kong International Airport ranks fourth with lounge chairs hidden behind shrubbery and seats without armrests which turn into comfortable 'beds'.

According to the report, the worst airport to feature on the list is Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Terminal 1), where travelers believe sleep is impossible to arrive and even the authorities accept that the airport handles 2 million passengers more than their annual capacity.

Bergamo Orio al Serio Airport (Italy) is ranked second for its sole cafe open for limited hours and travelers complained of anti-social elements screaming and shouting in the premises.

India's Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata and Islamabad's Benazir Bhutto International Airport rank third and fourth respectively for giving the worst airport snoozing experience as travelers complained of super high air conditioning, plastic chairs and lights switched on the entire night.

Paris Beauvais Airport scores fifth position as travelers complained of being kicked out at 1p.m as the hotels in the area were full.
