Misdirections to the Rama 5 Bridge

Go north on the 2nd stage expressway towards Chaeng Wattana and exit left onto Ratchadaphisek Road.

Go straight across at the first set of traffic lights and get in one of the right lanes to go over the flyover at the next intersection.  The flyover takes you past a clock tower, and the road is now called Wong Sawang Road.  After another kilometer or so filter left (sign-posted Bang Pho and Nonthaburi) instead of going over the Rama 7 Bridge.

At the traffic lights (T-junction) turn right passing under the road bridge. At the next traffic light turn left onto Piboon Songkrahm road.

Once you see the Rama 5 bridge, keep left and turn under the bridge.  Park somewhere under the bridge near the dock. Note: This bridge is between the Hash bridge and rama7 bridge... In case you get lost call Jumpstart on 0 1773 1600

Get the train to Morchit.  Go down to the street on the same side as the platform (beside Chatuchak Park).  Get a taxi heading out of town.  

After 1km at a big intersection the taxi should turn left onto Viphavadee Rangsit Road.  After about 1km more at an intersection like spaghetti junction turn left onto Ratchadapisek Road (the signs are in Thai, so just hope that your taxi driver knows where he is going!).  

After the elevated road comes down to ground keep in the outside lanes and go over the next flyover (Prachachuen).   This road is Wong Sawang Road, so don't go over the next flyover but turn right (see the directions shown above).
