To make a good first impression, the airport is offering gifts of souvenirs and fruit to Chinese passengers while airport staff are wearing Thai traditional costumes and performing traditional dances.

To further accommodate these passengers, the airport has put up signs in Chinese and deployed Chinese translators at various locations throughout the airport.
