Day 6: Sky Hub Lounge at East Wing Incheon Airport - South Korea

This has got to be our saddest lounge experience in airports.
Our flights was at around 6am.  We felt it would be a waste to book another night of stay in our airbnb studio.  So, we checked out the day before our flight, shop and walked the whole day, then headed to Incheon Airport around 10pm to wait to check in our flight which is early next day.  We checked online which lounge would open 24 hours and found that Sky Hub Lounge at the East Wing of Incheon Airport does.  Our plan was to get to the airport early, stay at the 24 hour lounge until it is time to board our flight.  Stupid as we were, we totally forgot we can't check into our flight until 2 hours before the departure time. Also, the Sky Hub lounge is passed the custom, which there was no way we can get into the lounge until 4am.  

So, from 10pm to 4am the next day, we slept on the benches at the airport like some homeless bum.  We did managed to get a bench with power outlets.  So, we made ourselves at home and start charging our phones and cleaning/moisturizing our face with our Hitachi Hada.  Totally ignoring we were out in the public.  Then I just slept there on the bench until 4am and that it was time to check in.

Just when we thought we can finally get into the lounge, it turns out Sky Hub Lounge is pretty much dead during those hours.

Sure, the fridge is still filled with drinks...

But the buffet bar is very much closed.  No food!

A very sad looking salad bar.

There are some cup noodles though.

We did realize there is a capsule hotel at the Incheon Airport.  Maybe we can try that the next time if we needed to sleep there.  Not sure which part of the airport it's located at though.
