Stuck at the airport waiting for a delayed flight with nothing to do? Not keen on using your mobile data or paying for Wi-Fi access to check your mail or go on Facebook? Well, there are quite a few tricks that you could use to tap into a nearby wireless network. While some might require a bit of tinkering or dialing up your charm, some are quite easy; for example:

You can rely on fellow travellers via Foursquare. Basically all you need to do is go to Google (so yes, you either need to sacrifice a bit of your own data plan or do this before coming to the airport), search for, say, “foursquare Suvarnabhumi Bangkok airport”, and then keep an eye out for the words ‘wifi’ or ‘wireless’. Chances are, somebody would have posted tips on where you can get free Wi-Fi (a nearby Starbucks, perhaps) or the airport’s very own Wi-Fi password. This trick has proven to be so popular that we now have at least two apps that specifically filter out Wi-Fi related tips from Foursquare. If you have an Apple device, you can pick up 4swifi for free, while Android users can go for VenueSpot.

Don’t find what you’re looking for? Well, maybe you need to broaden your search. For that, you might find Free Wi-Fi Finder to be quite useful. This app is available at the App Store and Google Play and can help you locate any nearby hotspots—hopefully some of them are free.

Still stuck without Wi-Fi access? Well, maybe it’s time to just activate your mobile data or play nice and pay up.
