A part of the Bangkok metro area, Nonthaburi is one of the largest cities in Thailand. Nonthaburi’s proximity to Bangkok gives it a special appeal to travelers who would like to have access to Bangkok, but choose to stay just outside the capital city as hotels in Nonthaburi tend to be a lot more affordable than those in Bangkok.
Nonthaburi is extremely easy to access from Bangkok, with several highways and routes passing right through it and countless public buses making trips there on a regular basis. It’s also very conveniently located near Don Mueang Airport, which is the domestic and regional hub of many Southeast Asian airlines.
The island of Koh Kret
is also more accessible from Nonthaburi, and an impressively beautiful location that should not be missed. The city of course has many more attractions of its own, including shopping centers and even a public park at Makutromsaran
that offers a great reprieve from the noise and activity of the city and its even louder neighbor.
From Nonthaburi, the world-famous attractions and historic sites of Bangkok are just a few kilometers away, while the chance to enjoy a more vintage Bangkok is easier to achieve around these parts. It offers the perfect mix of Bangkok’s smaller, older charm with access to the modern metropolis.
