Very long walk from the ferry to the terminal, not very advisable for old people and kids. But other then that, it's a super laidback terminal. Clearing of custom was fast, not as packed as it was years ago.

Don't wait any specialities here. You buy a ferry ticket, pass via fast-food corner, food shops, souvenir kiosks, go to border guards. After - wait for boarding in quite clean and air-conditioned lobby. Then - boarding.

Ferry terminal is old and there is only a shop selling all sorts snacks and drinks. The terminal is extremely stuffy and warm. Will not recommend taking a ferry from there unless you want to be the first few people on the ferry.
