About Travel from Khon Kaen to Don Mueang Airport
Travel by train is the most convenient form of overland public transport from Khon Kaen to Don Mueang Airport. The reason travel by train from Khon Kaen to Don Mueang Airport is more convenient than travel by bus or minivan is that only train services travel direct to Don Mueang Airport. Bus and minivan services from Khon Kaen to Bangkok do not stop at Don Mueang Airport. Instead they terminate at either Bangkok Northern Bus Terminal or the adjacent Morchit New Van Terminal, and from there its a 20 to 30 minute journey by road to Don Mueang Airport. By way of contrast, the train station at Don Mueang Airport is within the grounds of the airport and its an easy 5 minute walk from the platform to reach the check-in desks in both the international and domestic airport terminals.
The highlight of the train journey from Khon Kaen to Don Mueang Airport is the section of the railway line which runs alongside, and over, the Pa Sak Jolasid Dam Reservoir. The Pa Sak Jolasid Dam Reservoir is just under 5 km long and has a surface area of over 3,000 square kilometres. Sections of the railway track are supported by concrete pillars submerged in the water providing train passengers with excellent views of the reservoir, and the strange experience of riding in a train literally suspended over water. This section of the Northern Eastern Railway Line is a tourist attraction in its own right with the State Railway of Thailand running a popular special sightseeing train from Bangkok to the reservoir at the weekends.
