Bangkok’s Don Muang Airport (DMK) is one of two international airports, along with Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), that serve the Thai capital of Bangkok. Having been established as far back as 1914, this is one of Thailand’s first airports, and has been functioning as a commercial hub for over 50 years. Closed, and then reopened in 2006, the Don Muang Airport now handles both domestic flights and international routes throughout Asia, and is the operating base for several low cost airlines.
There are a decent range of facilities at Don Muang, with a couple of banks, several ATMs, and currency exchange services to see to any monetary needs. For communication, you’ll find that there is free WiFi, public telephones, and a post office. There aren’t a huge selection of shops, but you can find a few stores selling travel goods, reading materials, and cosmetic goods. If you’re hungry, there are a few restaurants, and if you’re feeling a little peaky, there’s a 24 hour medical centre within the airport. Don Muang also has disabled facilities, and there are information counters, and business amenities, including a few conference rooms.
There aren’t any airlines flying from Australia directly into this airport, but there will be connecting routes offered with Scoot, AirAsia, Nok Air, Thai Lion Metari, Thai AirAsia X, and Tigerair.
