Need direction

Hi, do you know how long it will take from Don Muang airport to Erawan Shrine (Thao Mahaprom Shrine)?

With a taxi it is about a 27 km drive. In ideal traffic 30 minutes, but depending on the time of day traffic jams will make the trip slower especially as you approach the shrine. An alternative would be taking a metered taxi from the airport to Mo Chit BTS station (16 km) and then riding the train to Chit Lom station which is very close to the shrine. This might be a bit awkward if you have lots of heavy baggage with you, though. The escalators in BTS station go only up, so you have to carry any baggage down the stairs.
