Erawan Museum is one of those places that stay off the regular tourist grid due to their relative inaccessibility but need to be definitely visited! The sight of the giant three-headed Erawan elephant itself is enough to mesmerise you with its architectural wonder. The name...More

Take the BTS to Samrong station and get a taxi about 50 baht. Well worth the trip, expect to spend an hour to 90 minutes here. The climb to the top of the elephant is a bit steep but there is an elevator. We didn't...More

There is the parking space nearby the museum, it is located under the upper-expressway bridge. keep on left lane and observe the signage. You can have short walk from the parking space to the museum.
