For a songthaew to Umphang, head south down Sri Phanit and about 100m south of the mosque take the left turn. The songthaew station is just on the right side soon after you enter the soi. If you're having troubles just ask a local for 'Songthaew Umphang' and they'll point you in the right direction.
