Misdirections to Sai Mai

Go North of Pahonyotin Road passing the Chaeng Wattana/Ramintra roundabout.  Continue going north on Pahonyotin until you pass Big C on your right and shortly after the Sapanmai Market on you left.  Turn right at the first traffic light into Soi Pahonyotin 54/1 (Tanon Klong Road), look for the PTT station on the corner. Zero your odometer. 

At 3.5 km turn right over the double bridge. At 4.6 km turn right into a narrow Soi (7-11 on the right), leading to the Saimai District Office and Police station.  At 5.4 km pass the checkpoint at the Chonlada Village. After the checkpoint follow the main road for a few hundred metres and  park beside the lake.

Alternative Route

Take Viphavadee Rangsit Road north past the airport.  About 4km after the end of the airport take the turn on the left sign-posted Pahonyotin Road.  The road loops round and goes over Viphavadee Rangsit Road.  You are now on Pahonyotin Road heading south behind the airport.

Go straight on at the first traffic lights.  Look for the Saphanmai exit on your left and then follow it down to an old Sabre Plane on you left in a traffic light (straight East for the North of the runway / Airforce Academy on the map). Turn left (new road with high walls)  and then left again when you reach a T-junction. The next road to the right is over the double bridge mentioned above.

If you have problems finding Moobaan Chonlada, call 02 991 5020 (Yupa and Willy).

Take the train to Morchit.  Go down to the street on the same side as the platform.  This is Pahonyotin Road.  Get a taxi heading out of town and follow the directions above.  It is about 14km from Morchit station to the Soi 54/1 turning so allow plenty of time.
