When you’re looking to escape the crowds and noises, Bang Krachao is an answer !
Bang Krachao is located in an area, actually in the province of Samut Prakarn adjacent to Bangkok, known as Phra Pradaeng; When you look at a Bangkok map, it’s the section where the Chao Phraya river snakes around like a horseshoe. It is the green zone or lung of Bangkok inside the Chao Phraya horseshoe. Today, the area remains, and is required to remain undeveloped commercially, in an effort preserve the nature and culture of the district. No sky-rise buildings or commercial factories are allowed in Bang Krachao.
Once you take the boat across the river and arrive to Bang Krachao, you’ll get dropped off at a little wooden dock and house. From there, you get on bike and start pedaling, you’ll feel like you’re completely removed from the chaos of central Bangkok. Lush green trees line both sides of the road, you can immediately feel the relaxation of nature. Just about 1 kilometer into the bike ride from the pier, you’ll arrive at Sri Nakhon Khuan Khan Park.
One of the cool things about Sri Nakhon Khuan Khan Park is that over half of the area of the park is un-touched, just natural trees.This makes it a decent bird sanctuary, and if you’re into bird watching, you’ll have a chance to see quite a few different species within the park. The park makes a lovely little detour from the road, and a place to bike around for a few minutes, enjoy the beautiful gardens, and then head back to the road to keep exploring more of Bang Krachao.
On weekend, there is the Bang Nam Pheung floating market. The market is somewhat of a local Bangkok tourist attraction, you can walk around, and eat lots of delicious authentic Thai food & desserts. You can go to Bang Krachao any day of the week, but if you go on a weekend, you’ll be able to visit the market, which is an extra bonus !
