GREATER NORTH BANGKOK

Don Mueang Airport is the gate to the rest of Thailand, much of which can be easily accessed with a budget flight from this airport. Your Thai friends may live in one of thousands of small sois in Northern Bangkok, where they have overwhelmingly large spaces that are great for house parties. If nothing else, you may journey here to get your passport or update your visa at the massive, intimidating Chaeng Wattana Government Complex.
