Best way to Golden Mount from Pathumwan Princess?

Hi, we are staying at Pathumwan Princess hotel in December and would like to go to Golden Mount. What would be the best way of getting there - taxi or bus?? Is it easy to walk there from Pathumwan Princess?

Thank you!

It is only about 4 ks and takes 10 mins in a taxi. Too hot to walk.

Hi,

I believe it is possible by taking a canal boat. Perhaps someone can clarify.

Thanks for the replies so far.

Looks like getting a taxi is the way to go.

Does anyone know if taxi's are readily available, if we wish to get a taxi back?

Thanks again. I appreciate your time.

I am sure there are many taxis but being a popular area for tourists do make sure the taxi driver uses the meter.

You can take the Khlong Saen Saeb boat from Pratunam Pier ,Beneath Hua Chang Bridge and soi near BTS National Stadium station to Leelard Pier near Temple of the Golden Mount.

Thanks AjarnAndy for the tip - we know to ensure the taxi uses the meter :)

Cheers DodgerIrishinLondon for the link and advice. I will print the map and directions in case we do go by boat.

Go by boat. Follow this map from your hotel, then head down the stairway pictured. Hop on the boat heading from right to left, as you face the water. Tell the fare collector "Wat Saket".He/she will kick you off at the last stop.

Take bus number 15 right in front of National stadium or a cab will cost you around 50-60 baht.
