Don Muang Airport (Bangkok) - The Unofficial Airports Guide

Shopping & Eating at Bangkok's Don Muang Airport

There is a very large number of shops and restaurants at Don Muang, both in the public area as well as in the departure lounges.

There are a couple of coffee shops as well as general merchandise shops on the departure level. Above the check-in area at either end of the terminal are more restaurants, including Silom Village.

Once you pass through security into the departure area, there are many more shops and food options, including such international chains as Starbucks, Burger King and Krispy Kreme, in addition to many local chains. You'll also find a 7-11 and other convenience shops.

International Dining & Duty Free Shopping

Don Muang Airport features a large, if basic, duty free shopping store. While there is a wide selection of the standard duty free items - booze, cigarettes and perfume - there isn't much depth or variety, and the items seemed to focus on what was popular in Asia rather than appealing to a western audience. Don't expect a good selection of wines or liqueurs. You'll also find a lot of other kinds of goods, such as electronics, watches, books and luggage, but in my checks I've founded that prices are the same as you'll find at any shopping center outside the airport, excluding VAT. There's also a selection of over-priced Thai products.
