HOW TO GET THERE: MRT TO KLONG TOEI STATION, EXIT UP THE ESCALATORS AND THEN WALK EAST ON THANG RAKFAIKO/RAMA IV ROAD FOR 10 MINS UNTIL YOU REACH THE LARGE INTERSECTION OF RAMA IV AND NARONG ROAD. THE MARKET IS ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE.

THE PARK FORMS A NARROW SWATHE OF GREEN WITH DEDICATED BICYCLE AND JOGGING TRACKS ENCIRCLING THE WHOLE PARK. MAJOR FESTIVALS LIKE NEW YEAR’S EVE AND LOY KRATHONG ARE HELD HERE. IF YOU LIKE WALKING AROUND THE LAKE, THE BEST TIME TO VISIT IS EARLY MORNING.

NOTES: WE VISITED THE MARKET FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF LOCAL FOOD INGREDIENTS IN BANGKOK.  THE PARK IS A GOOD PLACE FOR MORNING OR EVENING EXERCISES.  A GOOD PLACE TO STROLL ALONG THE LAKE IN THE HEART OF BANGKOK CITY.
