I've been there 2 weeks ago ... Still a very angry looking guard at the parking garage. No way to get in there ... So I took some shots at ground level ...

Hey Paul, the guy I’ve seen there was a very nasty character! When he saw my tripod he followed me on the road when I passed by the entrance of the parking lot. He was solely there to deny entry to anyone with a tripod! So i didn’t even bother to bribe him… maybe you are lucky and there will be another guard on duty! When do you plan to go? I was there on a tuesday night. But I will try again when I return to Bangkok in October…Good luck!

The guy at the front can be bribed; He usually takes 200-300baht and becomes quite friendly afterwards... I went a few times with a local friend, we both speak thai so foreigners might have to pay a bit more (like everywhere else in Thailand).

I had the same issue with the angry man at the front. But like all parking garages there is always a back entrance. When facing the grumpy man entrance. Turn left and follow the building around to the right less than 100 m. On the right side between some shops there is open black gate with some motorcycles on the other side. This leads to a stairwell that you can walk up. I found p3 was the best floor to shoot from. I was there for over an hour and no one bothered me. There are no Security cameras and I didn't see anyone roaming the floors. That being said I hid on the roof where no cars were until the shoot time arrived, just to be safe. Bad news is, that gate was locked by the time I came down. You can climb it but it does have those spikey things at the top or you can head out the main entrance and the angry will see and he might figure out how you got in and lock it permanently. Don't be that guy. See BTS for pictures of back way in.

Looks like it's impossible to get in. The guy "guarding" the place wouldn't allow me in...

sorry guy, I tried to "walk in" again recently but was stopped by the guard as well. But I saw that he allowed locals to shoot at the time I went...

the time I went, my local friend drove me to the car park avoided the guard. I went in the 2nd time myself but was prohibited at the car park entrance... the time I saw a few locals with DSLR and tripods were up there ready to shoot :(
