Where to Go
As Nonthaburi is only 20 km from Bangkok and both cities lie on the Chao Phraya River, the best way to get to Nonthaburi is via boat, though it is also accessible by car, taxi, or bus.
From Phra Nang Klao Bridge in Bangkok turn left to Bang Kruai for 17 kilometres at Bang Bua Thong junction, turn right to Nonthaburi District Office at Wat Chalo; continue driving for 500 metres. Wat Bang O will be seen on your right.
Although best reached by boat, Nonthaburi is also served by air-conditioned buses, minivans, and regular buses from Bangkok’s Mo Chit Station. From Mo Chit BTS station the trip takes 30 to 50 minutes.
The easiest way to travel around Nonthaburi is by local transport, either tuk tuk or songtaew (a truck with two rows of benches at the back). There are also motorbike taxies available and much of the area is enjoyable simply to explore on foot.
