Last updated: 20 January, 2015

By BTS:

Get the train to Saphan Taksin.

Take the 3.5 Baht ferry across the river to Sathorn Pier. Allow plenty of time as the ferry only goes when full.

When you get off the ferry go down the small soi to the right of the exercise park. The run will start 50m dowwn this soi.

By car:

Go over the Taksin Bridge.

Take the first exit after the bridge, signposted Charoen Nakorn.

Keep left and follow the road as it curves until you get to Charoen Nakorn Road.

Turn left at the traffic lights onto Charoen Nakorn Road.

After passing under the Taksin Bridge road make a U-turn at the first opportunity.

Return back along Charoen Nakorn Road and just before passing under the the Taksin Bridge road, turn left into the car park by Soi 15.

There is no sign for Soi 15, but look for green signs to "Sathorn (Taksin) CEN." and Chaloemprakiati Forest Park (Suan Pa Chaloemprakiati in Thai).

Park for free at the Forest Park (which closes at 20:00).
