(1) COMING FROM BANGKOK ALONG SUKHUMVIT ROAD
The main entrance to the Ancient Siam is off Sukhumwit Road. If you are driving from Bangkok on Sukhumwit Road, it will take you about fifteen minutes (depending on traffic) from The Erawan Museum. As you approach Samut Prakan City, look out for the Chon Buri signs. You need to follow these as it will take you around the city.
Here you are approaching the traffic lights. You need to turn left at the intersection and head towards Chon Buri.
As you approach the traffic lights, you will spot this clocktower on your right handside. You will find the City Hall here.
This is the traffic lights where you turn left. If you want to enter the city you should go straight ahead. If you stay in the lefthand lane you do not need to wait for the green light when you turn left. Exactly 1.19 kms later you will reach an intersection. Srinakarin Road is on your left. You need to go straight across this intersection.
Exactly 1.36 kms from this intersection you will pass Big C on your right. Keep going.
About 1 kms further, there is another intersection and traffic light. Go straight across again following the sign for Chon Buri. If you stay in the lefthand lane you do not need to wait for the green light.
As you pass this intersection, you will notice this shrine on your left. Beep your horn for good luck.
Exactly 470 meters after this intersection, you will spot this sign to turn-off for the Crocodile Farm on your right. Keep going.
Exactly 2.58 kms from the Crocodile Farm turnoff, you will pass this Standing Buddha on your left. On the opposite side is the entrance to the Red Cross Society. Keep going.
About 500 meters after the Standing Buddha, you will see your first sign for Ancient Siam, known as Muang Boran in Thai (formerly known as Ancient City in English). Don’t turn left yet. You need to pass underneath two more pedestrian bridges.
This is your second set of signs for Ancient Siam. They haven’t updated the name yet. You still have one more pedestrian bridge to pass underneath which you can see in this picture. You also drive this way for Bang Pu Seaside Resort as you can see on this sign.
As you approach the first bend in the road since the turn-off for the Crocodile Farm, you will see a police box on your left and Samut Prakan Technical College on your right.
Samut Prakan Technical College is on your right just before the pedestrian bridge and the bend in the road. Prepare to turn left.
Straight after the bend in the road, you will see the main entrance to Ancient Siam on your left. Cross the bridge here. If you want to visit Bang Pu Seaside Resort afterwards, turn left when you come out and drive for exactly 4.21 kms. You will see the entrance on your right. You need to drive past and then do a u-turn to come back.
