How To Go To The Philippine Embassy Bangkok?
The easiest and most convenient way to go to the Philippine Embassy Bangkok is by taxi. Just tell the driver to send you to ‘Soi Pilipin’ or ‘Pilipin Consun’ (consul) or Philippine Embassy. But be aware that traffic in Sukhumvit Road is normally congested.
If you are in a hurry you better take the Bangkok Skytrain (BTS). Go to the nearest BTS train station and buy a ticket going to Thonglor station. The ticket price will range from 15-55 baht depending on how far you are from Thonglor station. If your BTS train is coming from Silom line, you will need to transfer to Sukhumvit line. This happens at Siam BTS station.
Once at Thonglor BTS, take the Exit 2 heading towards the Noble Remix condominium. You will have to walk about 300 meters, or you can ride a motorcycle taxi. Motorcycle drivers usually wear orange suit with their respective number and name tag on their back. The Philippine Embassy is actually in the middle of Phromphong and Thonglor BTS stations.
You can also go to embassy by private car. But there is no parking space available for visitors (although there is a huge space inside the embassy compound) unless you have prior arrangement.
The guards at the gate will tell you that you can park in the nearest condominium (Waterford Diamond Tower at the back of the Embassy, soi 30/1) for 40 baht an hour. But this is still upon the discretion of the guards in that private condo. Sometimes, you have no choice but to bay-park in front of the Waterford condo; and then you will have to walk back again to the front gate of the Embassy. Note, there is a car wash just beside the Waterford Diamond Tower. You may opt to use their service to pamper your car while doing your errands in the embassy.
Buses that are passing in front of the embassy are with numbers 2, 38, 40, 48, 98, and 511.
