Start Time: 16:30
Run-Site:  Old municipal offices in Old Bang Yai
Coordinates: 13°51'05.8"N 100°25'26.8"E
 
MIS-DIRECTIONS

By MRT and Taxi
Get off the Purple Line at the Bang Plu Station, take exit 3, hail a taxi, and tell the driver to go to Old Bang Yai (Bang Yai gao).
 
He’ll turn left and drive south about 3 klicks down the Bang Kruay – Sai Noi Road, past Wat Suan Gaew on your left, and turn right at the mini-traffic circle (translation for people from old Y “roundabout”). Go straight 1.5 klicks (past the Morgan restaurant) and tell the driver to go up and over the high bridge (sapan sung) over the canal, and turn left immediately after that, through the gate into the gummint parking lot (“car park”).  If the gate is closed, keep going, circle left around the gummint complex, and left again into a driveway, and that’s another way in to the parking lot.
 

By Car:
If you're driving yourself, remember how to get to the "old Y-junction",Cross the Rama 5 Bridge.
After about 5.5km do not go over the flyover but filter left for the Ratchapreuk Road roundabout.
Turn right so you are heading north on Ratchapreuk Road.
After just over 1km, just before a road bridge, bear left onto the Bang Kruay-Sai Noi Road.
Proceed through the market area and after 1.5km at the Y junction keep left.
Drive on this road for about 2km until you reach the steep steel bridge over the klong at Bang Yai and turn left immediately after that, through the gate into the gummint parking lot (“car park”).  If the gate is closed, keep going, circle left around the gummint complex, and left again into a driveway, and that’s another way in to the parking lot.

By Boat:
Alternatively, take a river taxi north to the Nonthaburi Pier (orange flag boat 15 Baht is the cheapest). Upon disembarking, turn right and get on the five Baht cross-river ferry to Bang Si Meuang and hop on the cheap (and very slow) clapped out blue bus to Old Bang Yai. It’ll park just before the high bridge. Walk over the bridge a couple hundred metres to the ancient gummint complex.

GPS Coords: 13.7852°N 100.6476°

MISDIRECTIONS: 

By Car/Taxi: 

Take Rama 9 Eastwards (at ground level or via expressway- If the latter, take Srinakarindra exit)

On approaching Srinakarindra Road take left turn slip road towards Srinakarindra Northbound. Zero Odometer on hitting Srinakarindra Road. (Hwy 3344) towards Bang Kapi.  

Proceed straight via traffic light junction at 0.9km.

At second traffic light junction (2.1km) get into the middle or right lane. Immediately after second traffic lights you will pass over Khlong San Saeb and reach a 3rd traffic light junction at 2.4km. Turn right (signposted Buang Kum and Minburi).

As you approach traffic light junction No 6 (Soi 51 on the left) at 4.9km, get into the left lane and proceed straight on. After the traffic light junction you will cross a Khlong Bridge and immediately at the end of the bridge at 5.1km turn sharp left into Soi 53 and the NIttaya Gai Yang restaurant (Big coloured concrete chicken at the entrance) is on your right. Park in the restaurant car parking spaces at front, side and back.

Please note that although it is only 5.1 km from Rama 9/Srinakarindra junction to the restaurant, allow at least 30 minutes for this due to the frequent traffic lights, roadworks and thousands of car-bound Sunday shoppers visiting the Mall and Tesco Lotus at Bang Kapi.

Start Time: 16:30
Location: Pong Din Dam Reservoir, Khao Kheo
Google Maps: goo.gl/maps/qLQYNc5xe6Q2

We have just learned that the authorities have closed the highway exit at Khao Khiao Open Zoo. It does not appear that Google Maps has adjusted to this change, so we have a new set of mis-directions:

Revised Directions to the Runsite

Take the elevated expressway out of Bangkok in the direction of Chonburi (Highway 3). Keep going straight until the end of the elevated expressway. Zero the odometer as you return to ground level.

At around 3.0 km, exit left onto the Chonburi bypass road (Highway 361). Keep going straight. At around 8.0 km, there is an exit for Phanat Nikhom, but you will ignore it, and continue straight over the bridge. At around 12.0 km, there is an exit for Ban Bueng, but you will ignore it, and continue straight over the bridge. At around 14.5 km, the road splits, and you will go on the right in direction Pattaya (not left in direction Bang Saen).

At around 17.5 km, you will see the new toll station 500 meters or so ahead of you where the your road merges with the motorway (Highway 7). DO NOT go to the toll station that brings you onto the motorway, but instead go to the left of it. Immediately after the toll station, the road splits again, and this time you need to be on the right hand side heading for Pattaya. The bridge drops you onto the the support road for the motorway. You are now heading south in the direction of Pattaya next to the motorway.

At around 20.5 km, there is an exit, but you will continue straight. At around 26.0 km, you will see a bridge and an exit on the left, but you will continue straight. At around 29.0 km, you will see a bridge up ahead, and this is where you exit left towardsKhao Khiao Open Zoo and Khao Khiao Country Club. Zero odometer again.

Keep going straight for about 1.8 km until you get to a four-way intersection. Go straight following signs for Khao Kheo Country Club (do not turn left towards Khao Kheo Open Zoo). At around 3.7 km, follow the main road, which veers to the right (do not take the exit on the left towards Khao Kheo Country Club). Follow this road to odometer reading 5.4 km and park by the scenic reservoir overlooking the green hills.
