Chiang Rai (CEI) and TG

It's stated that TG runs a lounge in the airport but I can't seem to find if it's in the domestic or international side.

Can anyone shed a light on this?

Again, this talks about the domestic side of the airport.

Oh OK.
I thought you were asking if the only lounge there was Intl or Domestic side.
I didn't realize there were 2.

I never heard of them referred to as "Royal Executive Lounge". Is this a different type of lounge, or just an old name for a Royal Silk lounge?

I don't know if there are 2 that's what I'm trying to find out.

In airports like HKT and CNX there are lounges in both the Int and Dom areas. IN HDY the one lounge serves both sides (yeah, that's a weird one). Since CEI is an immigration/customs equipped facility there's the possibility that international customers have a lounge (but with only 3 flights a day that's by no means guaranteed).
