Most tourists think Lumpini Park is as green as Bangkok gets, but hidden across the Chao Phraya River is the almost-island of Bang Krachao, known as the "green lungs" of the city. A 10-minute boat trip from Khlong Toey Port, it’s a vast area of unspoiled mangroves and orchards with little in the way of infrastructure. Many biking tours will organize trips to the area or you can go it alone and rent a bike when you get there.

If you're in Bangkok for a week, I would not recommend bang krachao. But if you're here for a month, or living here, it is worth a visit as an escape from the city life. It is easy to reach from siam. Take bus 47 (6.5 baht) to the terminal station, walk to the pier, and pay 10 baht for... More

fantastic place to be, getaway from busy Bangkok. I enjoyed it because it has variety of fun and suitable for elders and kids as well. Recommended, park and floating market is near, so please don't miss the floating market as well.

From BTS Prakanong take 15 min taxi ride down Rama IV road to Bangkok Port. Once there walk through the Wat (temple) and catch a longtail boat across the Chaoprayah river to Bang Krachao. Finding this amazing patch of green in the centre of Bangkok is really surprising, you can hire a bicycle once there and ride to the floating... More

If you've got 4 hours to spare, this is one of the most enjoyable things to do in Bangkok. Get a tuk-tuk to Klong Toei pier, then a 10baht crossing to the island. Hire a bike where you get off for 100baht/day, and go explore! The map they provide isn't that much use, but half the fun is getting lost... More

On our recent visit to Bangkok we did a half day bike tour of Bang Krachao with SpiceRoads Cycle Tours. This is really a fascinating spot literally minutes away from the hustle & bustle & normal chaos that is Bangkok. It is like you get off the river & suddenly you are in a different world. Cycle tour was definitely... More

While I do enjoy living in Bangkok very much, I occasionally miss green spaces. Most of the public parks just don't cut it and/or are really far (Rama IX park anyone?). Enter Bang Krachao. It's easy to reach, just take a taxi to "Wat Klong Toei" and go to the pier at the back, the crossing is 10 baht. Right... More

A wonderful adventure, crossed from the Klong Toey pier for 10 baht and hired a bike for 100 baht a day. It has beautiful scenery and a labrynth of small concrete paths about 2 meters above the ground, between the houses. Not many tourists. Lots of fun and affordable. Easy to get lost though with little signage in English and... More

I love this place. Awesome weather, easy to go, adventurous bicycle ride and a authentic food taste. You can rent a bicycle for the whole day for just 100 baht, a really good deal. Must say polite and helpful people!

I loved this low key escape from the bustle of Bangkok. Everything from the little boat ride across the river to the bike riding (rented at the Bang Krachao side pier) around the park and neighborhoods, it was lovely. Nothing amazingly spectacular but such a breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively). I took my 2 year old son along... More

An abundance of shops selling food and farmer's items. A good place to leisurely walk around and sample some of the traditional Thai food that are hard to find anywhere else. You will be walking in an old orchard with stalls running the entirety of the orchard.
