What a difference this new terminal is to the old ill lit dusty previous building which now serves as Domestic. Arrivals via airbridge into a cool and gleaming marble and carpeted arrivals area first through Passport and Visa control now very efficient and with a smile. Quick luggage off carousel and then again a simple flow through Customs. Small Duty Free on arrival shop and large greeting area with lots of room to push the luggage trolly's outside Departing Uniformed porters unload your luggage and escort you through to check inafter passing the first security and x-ray machine. With Thai you can pay your $10 departure tax to the airline but if not there is a Departure Tax desk were you can pay it and get a receipt. Tip porter $1or1000chat. Then after check in you go upstairs on the escalator to Passport/Visa control into a large concourse with bar restaurant coffee shop loads of decent shops and an Airline Lounge. Further security check/x-ray machines and Customs desk at each gate. Good signs and announcements and a good overall experience-you would not know you are in the Third World. All they have to do now is sort out Domestic.
