Taking a nap might be the first on the to-do list when a fight is delayed or cancelled or when there is plenty of hard-to-kill time between flights.
To make sure this wish of travelers is fulfilled, Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, has taken a pioneering approach by providing a 309-square-meter area where passengers can take a nap at affordable prices.
A passenger can choose one of the 38 beds available, 28 of which are business-class seats and 10 are "bean-pods" brought from Finland. Four hours will cost 60 yuan, and 10 yuan each hour afterwards but a stay from 10 pm to 8 am might cost 120 yuan.
