Misdirections to Wat Bang
(Over Rama 7 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 cross the Chao Phraya river on the Rama 7 Bridge. Keep in the left hand lane on the bridge, and as soon as you are on the other side of the river filter left.
Follow the road round in a large left-hand loop, going underneath the bridge you have just crossed. After almost completing the loop there is a broad road on the right leading to EGAT. Do not take this, but fifty metres further on turn right into a very narrow congested road (possibly sign-posted 3215 to Bang Kruay). There might be a Oral-B advertisement on the corner.

Pass over Bang Kruai bridge and continue straight (ON ON ON restaurant Ruan Rim Nam on left just before bridge). Carry on until 6.1kms and turn right, follow this road until odometer reads 7.7kms then turn Right in to Wat Bang Khanun
