Song Teaw Numbers. Where do they go?
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:11:33 PM »
Number 1. To get to the main train station, catch a number one heading west on Suranaree Road (just off Ratchadamnoen/rear of Mae Kim Heng market). Catch one outside the station to bring you into the city.

Catch one on the corner of Chumphon and Chomphon Roads (behind the Chomphon gate) to take you all the way down Chomphon to Wat Boon Night Bazaar. Get off just as it turns left in front of the Iyara hotel. It also passes Night Bazaar 1 halfway down Chomphon.

Number 2 (or Number 11). These go to the 'old' bus station.

Number 4
. Catch one of these from the Thanon Chira train station (see above) to the city centre/Yamo area.

Number 6
. Usually white with a red and yellow stripe, number sixes are the most common songthaews in the city. They vary in their ultimate destination but all stop at The Mall and Lotus.

Number 7
. Very important for the traveller. Number sevens go to the main bus station (bok kor sor mai). They also stop opposite Big C before they reach the bus station.

Number 15
. Catch one of these new purple and white songthaews at the main bus station to get to the city centre (Yamo area). Wait near the main exit of the bus station for one. They also go to the main bus station from the city centre; the same goes for the Number 10 (white with red and yellow stripe).

Number 4129. These call at The Mall and Lotus on the same route as a number 6 but they go all the way to the zoo. The number is only displayed in small characters on the sides of the vehicle but they are all white with a yellow and blue stripe along the sides. Most now say Korat Zoo in English on the bodywork

Very useful - thanks BF

in addition...

Number 7. head south from the bus station, past Yamo and ends up coming out the south gate and about a mile towards the Buri Ram road.

Number 8. Goes from the Mall, past Yamo and out the East Gate to the Monks School 3km outside (caught it thinking it went somewhere else once!  :()

Number 1  There are 2 versions.  The No. 1 with the mostly white body comes from beyond Yamo in the east then passes George & Dragon, Railway Station, 2Peace, Walrus Pub, Golf Driving Range.  On the return journey it does not pass the George & Dragon but goes up the road parallel to G & D. 

There is another No. 1 with a mostly yellow body.  This is same as white one as above but after the railway station it goes to the Mall. 

Number 6  In addition to the places reported earlier it also goes to the IT Mall. 

Flat fare is 8 Baht and please no tipping.  A while back a farang visitor of mine nearly ruined it for every one by tipping the driver.  It took me a week to persuade the drivers..no more  tips.

Thank you for the additions.  I think number 11 also goes to one of the temples.  I want to see a Song Taew with the number 0 on it.  Where would that one go?

Thank you K-L.  I should talk to my neighbor as he drives a Son-Teaw for a living.  This is a good list to have.
