Take the Rama IX expressway east towards the Chonburi Motorway. Go over Sri Nakarin Road and exit onto the frontage road. Zero your odometer.
As you head east, the frontage road will bend left alongside the Outer Ring Road.
At 6.5km, just before a klong bridge, turn right and go under the Ring Road. This is quite flooded at the moment. Pick-ups and 4 x4 s will have no problem, our car can make it, but taxis and Franks car might not!
At the frontage road the other side of the Ring Road turn right, heading back towards the chonburi motorway. Stay on the frontage road (you bear left again eastwards, alongside the motorway).
At 9.5km turn left. into Soi Patthana Chonabot 3 (HHH).
At 12 km you will see a large flyover to your right. Just before the flyover look for the small road in front of you and of course the Hares green limo.
Misdirections avoiding the flooded road
Stay on the motorway until the Rom Klao exit.
When you exit the motorway make an immediate u-turn to the left so you get on the motorway frontage road, facing back the way you just came.
Drive for about 3km. Turn right into Soi Patthana Chonabot 3 (HHH sign).
After a further 2.5km you will see a large flyover to your right.
Just before the flyover look for the small road in front of you and of course the Hares green limo.
Get the train to Onnut. Go down to the street on the same side as the platform (Exit 1). Walk back along the pavement for about 300 metres passing a Shell petrol station and the police station to the traffic lights. This is Soi 77 (Soi Onnut).
Get a taxi going down the soi. After 5 km turn left into Sri Nakarin Road. After another 3 or 4 km (just after the railway crossing) turn right onto the Chonburi motorway and follow the directions above.
