Hare: Jim “Virginia Slim” E
Location: Chomna (ชมนา), Ramkamhaeng Soi 211

Map 13°48’47″N, 100°44’03″E

By car:
From the Chonburi Motorway, take the Outer Ring Road going north, pay the toll, and take the first exit for Ramkamhaeng/Minburi, which brings you to Ramkamhaeng Road.

If you are too cheap to pay the toll on the Outer Ring Road, you can take Rama 9 Road or Rama 9 Expressway out of town towards the airport (Chonburi Motorway),  exit left onto the frontage road after Sri Nakarin Road, and follow the  frontage road as it curves around to parallel the Outer Ring Road until you eventually reach Ramkamhaeng Road.

Turn right onto Ramkamhaeng Road towards Minburi.
Drive about 8kms and turn left into Soi 211 just before the junction with Romklao Road.

If you are not driving:
The fastest and cheapest way from town is to take the sewer rocket up the Klong Saen Saeb to the end at Wat Sriboonreung, walk out to Ramkamhaeng Road, and take a taxi to Ramkamhaeng Soi 211.
