FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CITY

The cheapest way is to take the Airport Rail Link from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Phaya Thai Station. A single journey costs 45 baht and takes around 26 minutes.

A more expensive way would be to take a taxi from the airport which is available at gates 4 and 7 on the first floor of the airport.

For more information regarding transportation from the airport, please follow the link: http://www.suvarnabhumiairport.com/ 

TO THE CAMPUS

By Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS)

The Siam Station and National Stadium Station are relatively close to the university, but the closest to the venue is Siam Station.

A walk from Siam Station to the venue takes approximately 10 minutes along Henry Dunant Rd. Take Exit 6 from the BTS platform. The venue is on the right side of the road next to Patumwan Demonstration School.

There are also University shuttle buses that will take you right to the campus. Once you arrive at Siam BTS station area, the shuttle bus stops are located in front of Lido Multiplex (Exit 2 from the BTS platform) and at Chaloem Phao Junction (Exit 6 from the BTS platform). Take shuttle bus No. 1. Once the bus enters the university campus, wait until the bus goes inside the Campus, running past the statues of the Kings (It’s on the right side of where the Bus’s heading) then get off at the second bus stop or ask students or the driver of the bus to help you.

By Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT)

The Sam Yan Station is right next to the university. Just leave through Exit 2 below Chamchuri Square, which is one of the university buildings where you can begin your visit. From here, you can walk for approximately 10 minutes to the Faculty of Arts. You can also board a shuttle bus No.1 or No.4 from the main bus stop next to Sala Prakiaw, then get off at Patumwan Demonstration School and walk back to the Faculty of Arts.

By Bus

There are a number of public buses that stop at the university on four roads surrounding the campus.

Rama I Road: Bus Numbers 11, 25, 54, 73, 79 and 204
Rama IV Road: Bus Numbers: 21, 34, 40, 47, 50, 67, 93 and 141

Phayathai Road: Bus Numbers 29, 36, 36, 501 and 542
Henry Dunant Road: Bus Numbers 16, 21 and 141

By Taxi

You can spot an available taxi by looking at the glowing red or green vacant sign in the front of the car. If turned on, that taxi is available.

It is suggested to wait for the taxi at a taxi stop. To prevent accidents please avoid waiting or calling a cab at an intersection or curved road. It is possible to flag a taxi at bus stops, but make sure there is no bus coming. It is better if you flag a cab about 800 m before or after the bus stop. All taxis are metered and taxi fees are generally paid by cash. Avoid drivers who offer you a fixed rate.

It‘s a good idea to take a photo or make note of the taxi registration number on the driving plate or on both passenger doors, especially in case of an emergency. If you lose your luggage or other valuables (hopefully you won’t), you can contact the taxi call center, 1644.

RECEPTION AND CONFERENCE DINNER

The reception will take place at Maha Chulalongkorn Building and the conference dinner at CU Thai House.
