1.) The Hua Chang Station of the Khlong boats is just walking-distance away from the Ratchathewi, Siam Sqaure, or National Stadium stations of the Skytrain (BTS). If you walk from these stations, take the stairway going down to the lower portion of the bridge, where the pier is located.

On our case, we walked from Lub d Siam Square, which was right beside the National Stadium station.
