Have you given up on the idea of couch surfing and Airbnb?


You are unlikely to be allowed to stay in the airport for the period of time you mention.. you can’t effectively live there for several days..

The Police will only interact with you if they have good reason to do so, and if you are staying in the airport from August 22nd to 26th, you may well come to the attention of the police and immigration authorities.

As with almost anywhere else, a law-abiding person who has nothing to hide has nothing to fear.

authorities are very strict on tourism and ensuring the safety of its country. when landing you would need to clear immigration and they may want to know where you are living or staying and have that verified. so if your staying in hotel, it is there responsibility to ensure they register your details with the authorities.

so be warned.
