Where to Stay in Bangkok: Don Muang Airport

Written by admin on January 7th, 2014. Posted in Where to Stay in Bangkok

Don MuangLocated on Vipavadee-Rangsit Road, about 24 km north of Bangkok. This is the former international airport; it closed the same day as the opening of Suvarnabhumi Airport on September 28, 2006. It reopened in 2007 to support domestic flights. This area is quite a ways from downtown and since you will not find here well-known tourist attractions like those in Sukhumvit, Siam, and Silom, most of those who look for hotels in this area will be motivated by business or economy only. To travel from Don Muang to downtown, you cannot avoid the crowded traffic. The best way is taking a taxi straight along the express way to Jatujak Station, then taking the sky train or subway to downtown. The outbound route is easier: go to Impact Arena Muangthong Thani in 15 minutes and to Ayutthaya in 40 minutes.
