Description: The Center is located at the outskirts of Bangkok, at Nong Chok District. Surrounded by rice fields it’s a special location so close to Bangkok but already in a typical natural Thai surrounding.
How to get to the temple:
Taxi from the City: From Bangkoks’ Center it’s an 1 1⁄2 hour ride by taxi (consider that traffic-jam time in Bangkok is from 6 a.m. – 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. In this time it can take more than 2 hours). Let the driver go with taximeter. It should not be more than 400 Baht/8-10 Euros. Usually i take the tollway towards Suvarnabhumi Airport. Costs a extra fee of 70 Bht. You leave the tollway at Rom Klao exit (short before the airport). Then turn left and follow the Rom Klao Road until you reach the intersection, where you see the sign to „Lard Krabang Industrial Estate“. Turn right and follow the road until it ends into Chalong Krung Road. Turn left and follow Chalong Krung Road until you reach Nong Chok. From Nong Chok its only 4 km to the temple. Everyone in Nong Chok knows it. From Nong Chok you can also easily follow the way with the map.
Bus: You could also take a Bus from Bangkok Northern Bus Terminal or Bus Nr. 26 from the center of Bangkok to Minburi. From there go on with a Van to Nong Chok. From Nong Chok take the „Song Teaow“ pick up truck towards Prachasamran Police Station. The temple is about 300 m behind the police station. Taking Busses will only cost about 100 Baht but needs about 3 to 4 hours.
Airport link from the City: Take the Airport link train to Lardkrabang Station and take a Taxi from there to the temple (about 150 Baht).
From Suvarnabhumi Airport: Its about an 30 to 40 minutes ride with the taxi (about 250 Baht). The Taxi has to go off at Rom Klao exit and follow the above described way towards Nong Chok.
