I have been there thrice. However, it's nothing compared to the likes of Hong-Kong, Changi or Schipol etc. The design/ambience is also a bit of a "blast from the past" but it still serves your basic amenities and it is one of the better third world airports.

I was there a year ago and was very surprised at how modern it was, its true its decor is a bit outdated now but it must have been really good for the time when it was built. Does anyone know if it is due for renovation soon? and what about the plan to add two more satellites?
