Bangkok Airways

I'm in the airport on my way to Chiang Mai waiting in the Bangkok Airways terminal. They bill themselves as "Asia's Boutique Airline" and they aren't kidding. They have free internet kiosks, free Thai iced tea, and free cookies. Good thing I checked in early! The taxi ride over here was terrifying. I think I've learned NOT to dicker for a good price on cab rides. The level of recklessness on the part of the driver appears to be inversely proportional to the fare. This is only made worse by the fact that Thai vehicles don't have seatbelts in the backseat. Eeek! The worse drivers also seem to be the ones with lotus leaves and prayers taped to the ceiling of their cab. Maybe these are for previous passengers who didn't make it to their destination...
