Getting around

Songthaews and taxis do come here, but generally they are more frequent along the Ring Road. Approximate songthaew fares and times include:
Nathon to Hua Thanon (anti-clockwise around the Ring Road) 60 baht taking 25-35 minutes.
Hua Thanon to Lamai: 30 baht taking 10-15 minutes.
Hua Thanon to Chaweng: 50 baht taking 25-30 minutes.
Thong Krut to Lamai: 60 baht taking 30-35 minutes. (Less frequent route, as the whole trip is not on the Ring Road, but partly on the 4170)
