Arriving 11pm; we were worried that we would not have enough time to reach hotel in the city by train. Decided to stay somewhere near the airport compared to trying to rush through imigration and baggage clearence.
Hotel provides bus from international airport; scheduled very conveniently for our arrivals in late evenings. Wrote an email to the hotel for info, and was provided with helpful instructions on directions for the bus transfer.
Checked in and had midnight supper at nearby local restaurant across the road. There are a few restaurants and convenient stores along the hotel to the train station.
Took the train the next morning during rush hour; there are many locals who boards the train too, but it wasn't too difficult even though we had our trolley bags. In fact we enjoy the experience of a typical rush hour traffic. Anyway didn't regret the decision to stay overnight at the hotel on the first night as the train journey to the city took almost an hour. If we were to take the train on the first night, we would most probably be arriving very late and tired.
I left my phone in the room after checking out; and called back to the hotel to check. They managed to find my phone and kept it for me, to be collected on my way back to the airport a few days later.More
