Misdirections to Wat Champa

Take the second stage expressway towards Chaeng Wattana. Take the exit left for Ratchadapisek Road.

At the first traffic lights zero your odometer while you wait for them to change, and then go straight on into Wong Sawang Road.  After the traffic lights keep in the left hand lanes to avoid going over the next flyover.  At the next traffic lights (Wongsawan, 1.2km) turn right (sign posted Nontha Buri).  

When your odometer reads 3.7km you should see a left turn signposted 'Rama 5 Bridge'.  Take this turn, and then get in the right lane to enter the Main Road.  At about 5.8km you will cross the Rama 5 Bridge.

At 8.0km take the flyover crossing Bang Kruai-Bang Bua Tong Road.  At 9.3 km the road crosses a khlong and 10.8km get left and make the U-turn. 

At 12.0 km turn left at the Wat Champa signpost, and park in the temple a further 200 meters down the road.

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).
