The moment you arrive at the check in (near the jetty), you know you are in for a wonderful experience. As is usual for Thailand you are greeted with a warm smile, cold towel and refreshing drink. There is free internet, nibbles and drinks available and you get to choose what sort of "scent" you would like to have in...
