Don Mueang Airport Bus A1 DMK Chatuchak Park MRT 001

The Don Mueang Airport Bus Service A1 is a convenient high-frequency bus service linking Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport to Chatuchak Park MRT Station at most times of the day. Despite being an almost non-stop express bus running via the tollway, it is part of the BMTA network of public buses in Bangkok, and charges reasonable local fares of just 30 Baht (~S$1.33). Coming in from my Scoot TR866 flight from Singapore, I hopped over to Gate 6 to catch the Don Mueang Airport Bus Service A1.
