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 to go 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 the Silom line, you will need to transfer to the Sukhumvit line. This happens at Siam BTS station.
Once at Thonglor BTS, take 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 numbers and name tags on their backs. The Philippine Embassy is actually in the middle of Phromphong and Thonglor BTS stations.
You can also go to the Embassy by private car, but there is no parking space available for visitors unless you have a prior arrangement.
Rain Hill, located in front of the PHL Embassy on the other side of the Sukhumvit Road, has parking spaces for its customers. You can get free car parking if you purchase from any of their stores or eat at the restaurants inside. Also, if you missed authentic Pinoy food, Lola’s Kitchen is also a walk away from the Embassy.
Buses that are passing in front of the embassy are with numbers 2, 38, 40, 48, 98, and 511.
