Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Taling Ngam Beach.
Taling Ngam is located on the 4170 road, which joins the main Ring Road at Hua Thanon in the east, and Ban Saket in the west, just before Lipa Noi. Although public transport is available, it is not as frequent as on the main Ring Road, and one may have longer to wait for one. Approximate songthaew fares and times include:
Nathon to Taling Ngam: 60 baht taking 25-30 minutes
Taling Ngam to Lamai: 60 baht taking 30-35 minutes
For the Lipa Noi area, songthaews and taxis are available from the Ring Road, as they frequently leave the piers, but getting anywhere by taxi will be pricy due to the distance, and having your own vehicle is advisable. Approximate songthaew fares and times include:
Nathon to Lipa Noi: This route is not frequent, so other options may be better. The 4174 leaves the Ring Road (4169), which is the road to Lipa Noi. Songthaews to this junction should cost approximately 30 baht and take 15-20.minutes.
Should you get a songthaew that travels along the 4174, a trip from Nathon to Lipa Noi beach would cost approximately 50-60 baht and take 25-35 minutes.
