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.
After 1.3km the road curves to the right, but just before the bend you will see a signpost on the left to Wat Khemaphirataram. Turn left through the wat entrance arch. Follow the left fork of the soi past the wat on your right and park in the Baan Khieng Naam restaurant car park (sign in Thai only Tel:- 526-8505) beside the river.
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. This road leads into Wong Sawang Road, from where you can follow the directions shown above.
Or take air-con bus no 5 from Silom, or take the Chao Phraya Express boat and disembark at Wat Khema pier.
