Don Muang Guide


These hotels were all designed with ease of access to Don Muang Airport in mind. It may no longer be used for international flights but, if you need to head here for a domestic flight, a stay in one of these will give you peace of mind.

Many take advantage of the area's abundant space with large gardens and grounds, while all are modern and luxurious. Read More...

Don Muang Attractions


The multipurpose IMPACT Exhibition and Convention complex is roughly five kilometres from Don Muang Airport. Everything from pop concerts and trade fairs to business meetings are held here. Nearby is the satellite city of Muang Thong Thani, where many businesses and affordable high-rise condominiums can be found.

The Royal Thai Air Museum, found just behind the airport, preserves planes and equipment spanning from the beginning of Thai aviation history to the present. Nearby is the Kantarat Golf Course, which belongs to the Royal Thai Air Force and is famously sandwiched between the airport's two parallel runways. There are also various other golf courses in the area, including Rajpraek Club and the Royal Thai Army Golf Club. 

Beyond Don Muang, cinema complexes can be found at Central Lad Phrao shopping centre and Future Park Rangsit. And only six kilometres south back towards central Bangkok is Chatuchak Park (next to the famous Weekend Market) and the adjoining Queen Sirikit Park. Both are lush, tranquil and great for chilling out in. 

Don Muang Restaurants


Malls and department stores in the Don Muang area boast lots of fast food joints and franchise restaurants like MK, Zen and Oishi. As elsewhere in Bangkok, local restaurants, streetfood stands and convenience stores are ubiquitous. Every hotel in the area has at least one in-house restaurant, most serving a broad selection of international cuisine.

Don Muang Nightlife


Beyond what's found in your hotel, and a few local karaoke venues and bars, there is little nightlife in Don Muang. Ratchadapisek Road is the closest hotspot, with slick sparkling nightclubs and huge neon-lit massage parlours. However, try downtown areas like Sukhumvit, Khao San Road or Silom if you want buzzing after-dark scenes with a healthy foreign contingent.

Don Muang Shopping


Several big shopping centres can be found in the Don Muang business district and the nearby vicinity, including Big C Supermarkets, Tesco Lotus (both on Chaeng Wattana and Phaholyothin Road) and Central Department Store (Ram Intra Road). However, there's even more exciting shopping to be had only slightly further afield: Rangsit's Future Park (a mega shopping complex), the very popular Central Lad Phrao mall (including department store), and the labyrinthine and world famous Chatuchak Weekend Market (open Saturdays and Sundays).

Don Muang Getting Around


With expressways galore, the best way to get around Don Muang has to be car or taxi. However, the BTS Skytrain (nearest station Mo Chit), and MRT underground (nearest stations Phahalyothin or perhaps Lad Phrao) are both very handy for trips downtown. There is also a train station at the airport, with trains to and from Hualumphong station in the centre of town (near Chinatown). These can be a hassle though: schedules are erratic, trains often delayed.
