Bangkok's old international airport may have been superseded by the monstrous Suvarnabhumi Airport but Don Muang now specialises in useful low cost internal flights and the surrounding area has plenty to keep you interested.
If you're planning on darting around Thailand by plane and using Bangkok as a base, staying in a Don Muang Airport hotel would allow ... More>you easy access to the whole country. Additionally, if you have the time, central Bangkok is also not too far away for a few thrills to fill in the time. However if you need to stay closer to the airport there are still plenty of highlights to choose from without having to venture too far. One of those is Chatuchak Market which is a Bangkok must-do. One of the most spectacular markets in the world, Chatuchak sells almost everything you can think of. From fish, second hand jeans, furniture and art—it can all be found here. For something slightly different, check out the neighbouring food market, Or Tor Kor. A bit more off the tourist trail, this food market is so full of delicious delights you won't leave with an empty stomach. Don Muang hotels are often popular with people wanting to stay close to IMPACT Arena which is a huge collection of buildings designed to host exhibitions, sporting events and concerts.
