Boat (for visitors and canoodling couples):
From The Thaksin Pier (at BTS Saphan Taksin) allow just over an hour to reach The Nonthaburi Pier by Express Boat (orange flag).
Get out of the boat at Nonthaburi Pier, turn right, stroll roughly 200 meters (that’s like two football fields for Americans) down The Promenade and arrive outside the Rim Pung Restaurant.
On Ratchapreuk road going North from town, bear right at the massive roundabout onto Nakhon In Road.
At around 5km on the Rama V Bridge, exit on to Piboon Songkhram Road and bear left toward Nonthaburi.
Proceed 700 meters (through one set of lights) and turn into Soi 21 just before the yellow footbridge.
Go to the end of the soi and turn right into the cul de sac, park and walk to Rim Pung Restaurant.
Alternative Car/Taxi/Tuk Tuk Route:
Exit at Ngam Wong Wan Road after the 10 Baht toll booth and stay in the left lane
Go 1km on Ngam Wong Wan Road and then, at Khai Lae Junction, turn left onto Tiwanon Road.
After 2km turn right (under the flyover) on to Pracharat Road.
Continue on this road for another 2 km, passing The Nonthaburi Market.
At the Nonthaburi Clock Tower, bear left and get out at the end of the Soi (after paying, if by taxi) by the Rim Pung Restaurant on The Promenade.
Double Secret Alternative Car/Taxi/Tuk Tuk Route:
Take the "Alternative Car/Taxi/Tuk Tuk Route" as above, but at 1.6km from the turn onto Pracharat Road, turn left at the lights under the footbridge onto Piboon Songkhram Road.
Get into the right lane and, after 250 meters (just after River Plaza on your left and the footbridge over the road), turn right into Soi 21 (a small busy soi at the edge of the market with yellow 'Captain' signs on the left).
Go to the end of the soi and turn right into a cul-de-sac.
Park on your right at the end where space is plentiful. Walk 50 meters on the footpath beside the empty building on the river and bear right after passing the Post Office. Arrive at The Promenade on your left.
