Misdirections to Wat Song Plu
Take the second stage expressway towards Chaeng Wattana. Take the exit left for Ratchadapisek Road.
At the first traffic lights 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) turn right (sign posted Nontha Buri). After about 2km you should see a left turn signposted 'Thanon Kanchanapisek' and later 'Pra Rama 5'.
Take this turn, and then get in the right lane to enter the Main Road. Soon you will cross the Rama 5 Bridge.
Zero your odometer at the end of the bridge. At 1.4 km, you'll go over a flyover over a road, and at 2.6 km, there's a bridge over a big khlong.
After the Khlong, filter left onto the frontage road (around 3.8 km) and turn left at the sign for Wat Song Plu. The Wat is about 100m in on the right.
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).
