Be warned. The smoking room is very small and even before you lite up it feels like you have already had 5 cigs 🙂 VAPERS BE AWARE! Vaping (E-cigarettes, vaporizers, vape pens, atomizers, and electronic nicotine delivery systems) is still banded in Thailand 'so say' due to health issues, but in reality due to tax reasons. 'On the spot' fines, or threats of jail time by local Thai police, and by tourist police, can be en-forced.
