757MDE, you got the good runway direction for your visit! When I was there I had to shoot departures and had to move a lot further down the canal. Luck of the draw I guess!
Must have been!
I lived in Bangkok for a while and went to King Kaeo many times. Only did I have the "bad direction" (i.e Runway 01L in use instead of 19R) once, and it happened all in front of my eyes. Runway 19R was in use, then there was a sudden tropical rain of those that last about 10 minutes and a change of wind direction. Runway 01L began to be in use and lasted one hour until the wind changed again.
That's not to to say it is that infrequent, but I did have good luck with the wind direction most times I went to King Kaeo.
Now, Karl is right when he says there are other interesting places to take pictures from too, don't miss them if you have the time!
King Kaeo is good in the Afternoon, in the morning I used to go to a parking lot close to a Buddhist Temple (I was looking for pictures but I don't have any from there in Airliners right now, let me know if anyone is interested and I'll upload some somewhere else).
