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.
