Where to Stay in Don Muang
Editor's Guide to Hotel Locations in Don Muang
Many hotels in Don Muang district have been designed with the needs and ease of business travellers in mind. Although Don Muang Airport is no longer the international air hub, it serves as a gateway to Bangkok’s outskirts and other provincial towns served by two domestic airlines, Nok Air and Orient Thai. Apart from a handful of golf courses and conference facilities, Don Muang is a low-key neighbourhood with not much to offer in terms of shopping or nightlife. To make up for this, many hotels take advantage of the area's abundant space with large landscaped grounds as well as extensive recreational and dining options.
