Don Muang Railway Station Thailand
(DMK Airport Train)

The Don Muang Railway Station is a small train station near Don Muang International Airport in Bangkok (DMK).

The station is located in between Vibhavadi Rangsit Road and Choet Wutthakat Road, just opposite the International Terminal 1 and as a consequence is sometimes referred as Don Muang Airport Train Station (please note that these days it is often also spelled Don Mueang).

Nearly all the trains running on the Northern Line and the North-Eastern Line stop at Don Muang Train Station

So, if you are flying in or out of DMK Airport, taking a train gives you another travel option rather than an expensive taxi or uncomfortable minivan.

The station is used either to go from the airport in to Bangkok city centre (or vice versa) or to board a train going North or North-East.

Trains from Bangkok to Don Muang Airport or Vice Versa

If you wonder how to get to DMK airport to catch a flight, you might want to consider boarding a train from Hualamphong Train Station in Bangkok city centre.

From Hualamphong Station you can purchase a ticket for the airport from either the counters that sell commuter train tickets or from any other counters.

These Thai trains usually leave on time as they originate at Hualamphong and as DMK airport is not that far away, long delays are fairly unlikely.

If you need to travel the other way round, from the airport to Bangkok city centre:

use the small cabin located on platform number 1 to purchase your ticket as mentioned above.

Bangkok bound trains will most certainly not be on time, especially the trains coming from distant cities in Northern and North-Eastern Thailand.

Although taking a train is not the fastest way to travel from DMK airport to Bangkok (or vice versa), it is one of the cheapest ways, especially if you board an ordinary train (costing only 5 THB).

 The problem is from DMK to Bangkok is that you might end up waiting for a while at the train station.

In the end it all comes down to good timing!

If you are lucky and get a train quickly after your plane has landed, then it is a good way to reach the city (and by far the cheapest).
