Tips for Delegates

Transportation

Buses are a convenient way to travel between Bangkok and Salaya Campus. The air-conditioned buses No. 515 and No. 547 run on different routes from Phuttamonthon 4 Road to Victory Monument in central Bangkok. Regular bus No. 124 runs from Phuttamonthon 4 Road to Pinklao west of the Chao Phraya River (and continues into central Bangkok), connecting to the Express River Ferry at Pinklao Bridge Other Regular buses No. 125 and No. 84 also runs on different routes from Phuttamonthon 4 Road to Samsen Train Station and Klongsarn Pier.

Commuting between Bangkok and Salaya Campus by train (a 1-hour trip) is also possible, though less convenient.

Private vans (‘rot dtoo’) run between Salaya Campus and Pata Department Store in Pinklao. On campus they wait at the main cafeteria, as well as at the bus stop by the pedestrian overpass opposite campus on Phuttamonthon 4 Road. In Pinklao they wait in Q8 Gas station close to Central Department Store.

Regular free shuttle buses for staff and students also commute between the Office of the President building and Bangkok in every half an hour from the early morning to late afternoon. For current scheduling details, please see the relevant webpage on http://www.mahidol.ac.th/en/shuttle_bus.html.

Taxis at Salaya are usually available at the small taxi stand on Phuttamonthon 4 Road in front of the campus. From Salaya expect to pay about 125 baht to Central Pinklao, 190 baht to Siam Square, 250 baht to Don Muang Airport and 800 baht to Suvarnabhumi Airport. Motorcycle taxis also wait here for short excursions.
