So airasia have change my flights and now i'm stuck at Don Muang for 7 hours :( Now i'm looking for something to do in the area. As I took a nok air flight after the floods I know the airport has nothing for entertainment unless it has been added recently.

So please suggest things to do that don't involve going all the way into town. Anyone know if the Amari has layover deals i'm there from 9 am to 4 pm. Is there anything cheap I can do want to save the $50 if possible.

I would probably take a taxi to Future Park Rangsit, a good way to kill a couple of hours.

Anyone know if Kantarat Golf Course still exists or if the aviation museum is still around? Not sure if these died when the new airport came about or not.

Dreamworld isn't far... You'll be wanting a shower after though.

You are allowed to enter Thailand on your "layover"? You can get the entry stamp?

Entry stamp for a potential domestic transfer?

don muang has a skytrain stop which would make it easy to get into the city (not that its that far in the first place) and back without fighting traffic. if its a saturday or sunday then JJ (chatacuk) market is near by with loads of good deals if you want to spend your time picking up souvenirs.

When did they extend the skytrain out to Don Muang?

Don't know if it's still there because i've not been to Don Muang since the new airport opened but there used to be a hairdresser's upstairs that offered.... errr... a little more than just a haircut. That may pass a little time...

Where else in the world I wonder...? (Answers on a postcard please...)

Agree that Future Park Rangsit is a good option. Wander around, eat, get a massage (near the upstairs food court near Big C), catch a movie - although you may want to walk to the Major cinemas as opposed to the cinema in Future, as I find it has better selection with English soundtrack. Major also has bowling. If you're into electronics and computer stuff, a walk around Zeer Rangsit - about mid way between Don Muang and Future - can also waste some time. There's a good (real) massage place in Zeer at the bottom of the escalator near Tops.

"yourauntbob" seems quite confused - both in user name, and skytrain facts ;)

Ha! I remember that place. I had a long transit years ago and badly needed a haircut.
Imagine my surprise when I was offered *ahem* additional services - surely no other international airport in the world had an airside hairdresser that brazen :lol:

There was a soapy on the top floor of the airport hotel called "after flight" or so. Not cheap but a clean transition solution; get a happy ending and then head for some snacks on the ground floor prior to board the flight on which you'll nap like a baby!

Loved that place! :)
