    Hi there,

    Do you know any hotel near Don Mueang International Airport? I'll travel to Chiang Mai, two months from now, on AirAsia. I'll arrive in Bangkok the night before; ETA is past 11 PM. I prefer to be near Don Mueang. Thanks!

    There is an Amari just opposite of the airport. It is connected via a walkway to the departure hall. So very easy to reach the airport. No need for a Taxi.

    Maybe it is not the cheaptes option, but instead of paying 2 times taxi, this Hotel can be a good choice

    taxi''fare'' DMK-Hotel area to like SapanKwai is likely less as 100 bt/each way-that Amari is 1000s more epxensive. A bus is free or cost 6/11 bt.
    also I do not quite see your point in staying near DMK: I get you arr at SWAMPY=main, BKK by midnite and lve from DMK next day late? Area around DMK is pretty boring.

    What time is your flight out of Don Muang?

    Millions of tourists arrive in Bangkok late at night and many of them head for the city area. If your flight out of Don Muang is in the afternoon why not stay in the city? Even at 2 a.m. there are some streets like Sukhumvit still full of tourists. No problem getting transportation Don Muang.

    Even better spend the a couple nights in Bangkok and then head up to Chiang Mai. If you have winter items your Bangkok hotel can store them until you return for your final night in Bangkok.

    Up to you.

    Thanks for the replies. ETD at Don Muang is 10:30 AM, unless AirAsia will have a delay (in their flight). I'm thinking about the traffic, but I haven't been in Bangkok.

    Get one of the trains going north from Hualamphong.They are slow, up to an hour but no traffic and 5 baht.Every train stops at Don Mueang and the it's a short walk over the footbridge.Going from Hualamphong gives you option to stay in Silom even Banglumphoo. Other than that stay in Bang Sue, real Thai area and near Don Mueang.
