Calling on expats and everyone! Escape from busy work days in a skyscraper for a chance to appreciate the true beauty of the Thai local lifestyle. It’s easy, simply take a one-day trip filled with nature and peacefulness right next to Bangkok at Bang Kachao – Bangkok’s green lung.
Accessible by boat or an easy drive an hour from the heart of the capital, this sanctuary is now better prepared than ever to welcome everyone, thanks to the Ministry of Tourism and Sports’ latest campaign, “Explore Unseen Thailand: Bang Kachao Beyond Expectations.”
The Ministry would like to invite all you hard workers out there to experience the charms of traditional riverside architecture and lifestyles coupled with refreshing breezes and scenic greenery at Bang Kachao.
The excursion began at Wat Bang Nam Pueng Nai with the party admiring the elegance of Phra Maha Monthop Chedi Si Nakhon Khueangkhan. They then mounted bicycles and rode along Morakhot Road cutting through the lush jungle before pausing at Bang Nam Pueng Homestay. After paying homage to the Buddha image at Wat Bang Name Pueng Nok, the group enjoyed a special luncheon prepared by the kind chefs of the local community along with various activities such as riverside herbal massage, foot massage with herbal water, and tie-dye painting. They then put on life jackets and went rowing beneath the shade of Lamphu trees surrounded by the traditional way of life and having fun with a conservation activity. They wound up at Bang Nam Pueng Market where shops from all six districts of Bang Kachao community presented their craft products. The day ended with a folk performance and a roundtable discussion on bringing sustainability to Bang Kachao at the Bamboo Hut Learning Center.
