Travelers going to DMK airport from Khao San often take taxi price 220 THB, or take the shuttle buses (150 THB shuttle bus price to DMK airport). But I’d strongly suggest to skip both of these and go with the third option. And what’s the third option?
Best way to get to Don Muang Airport from Khao San is to take the A4 bus. Bangkok A4 bus is cheap (50 THB), real quick (45 minutes max) and tout free (no dealing with the shady tour operators.)
The A4 bus stop is on Chakrabongse Road, the other end of the Khao San Road. This bus stop is opposite to ‘Wat Chanasongkhram Ratchaworamahawihan’ which can be easily located on Google Map.
If you are coming from Rambuttri Alley, the quieter cousin of Khao San, take the right on Chakrabongse Road and the A4 bangkok airport bus stop is right there. If you are coming from Khao San Road (the police station end) it take about 5 minutes to reach this a4 bus stop.
Can you see the A4 and S1 bus above?
Beware that there is no proper bus stop here and the buses stop just about anywhere, including the middle of the road. Be careful of the traffic as you might have to run to your bus.
Remember to flag down the bus because it might not stop if there are no passengers getting down.
And yeah, grab some fresh tender coconut while you are waiting 🙂 Also, read this next if you are going from Don Muang Airport to Pattaya and this if you plan to go from Suvarnabhumi airport to Pattaya
