Take the BTS Skytrain to the end of the Silom line – Bang Wa.
Leave the station by Exit 1 and catch a taxi heading up Ratchapreuk Road.
Note the odometer reading on the taxi’s meter.
Cross over two flyovers and a bridge over a canal.
At about 4 km, and just after the canal bridge and the 9 km road marker, turn left into Wat Intrawat Road (HHH sign) (this is about opposite a tall yellow crane on the right).
Follow this road for about 1 km, and opposite the gate to Wat Pradu turn right into Intrawat Soi 23.
Get out of the taxi in the open space on the left.

From Sathon Road:
Cross over the Taksin Bridge, and after about 6 km turn onto Ratchapreuk Road heading north. (You will cross over Ratchadapisek Road on the way.)

From the North:
Head south on Ratchapreuk Road. When the km markers descend to 8.8 km take the Pran Nok exit. (I’m not sure about this, I’m copying old misdirections here – but this should be just about at the tall yellow crane on the left.)

After 800 meters turn left under a temple gate into Soi Adul Satsanakan.

Follow this winding road for about another 2km.
At 3.4 km go straight instead of right like most traffic.
