Smoking at Bangkok - Don Mueang International Airport (DMK)

Airport Rating


Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking before security:

 It is actually on the first level (arrivals), so you'd have to go down from departures. Then walk left, it is between gate 8-9 outside. It's a long walk though. Feedback from Hellen on the 3rd June 2017.

Warning from Ben on the 16th Feb 2018: The smoking area near the gates at Bangkok DMK airport is closed for maintenance - you can use the one upstairs just fine, no idea how long this will last but it may be good to know since it's quite a walk between them.

Domestic Departures:

No smoking areas confirmed by Robert on the 27th March 2018.

Yet to be confirmed (due to email bouncing), but Derek sent us and email on the 2nd Feb 2018 to say there is no smoking areas in Domestic Departures.

International Departures:

Smoking room located Gate 21 behind Black Canyon Coffee shop. past security inside International Departures. Feedback from Emlyn 'signal' on the 10th June 2017.

Terminal 1:

Terminal 1 - across from Gate 22 (just before reaching Gate 21). Feedback from Sasha on the 18th December 2017.

Feedback received on the 15th March 2017 from Jane: Smoking areas at Don Muang International Airport Terminal 1. Currently, I have found 3 of them. The first one is outside before you enter the terminal at the first entry (facing the terminal on the left) and the second one is fortunately inside the terminal after the passport check. The second one is near Gate 15. I'm not sure if there's any other ones inside or not but this is what I've found. The image below is the smoking room at Gate 15.

Opposite Gate 22 there is a smoking area confirmed by Ben 4th February 2017.

Another smoking area in terminal 1 has been found at international at Gate 1. Feedback from Oliver on the 1st July 2017.

Arrivals Hall zone 3,  Pier 2,

Domestic Transfer (domestic),


Departure Terminal 3 Zone, Pier 2 (a),

North Gate14.
