Bang Kra Chao : The Lung of Bangkok

Bang Krachao, also known as Bangkok Green Lung, which apparently gets the name because of the shape it takes, if seen from top, is a vast area of lush green forest, mangroves, gardens and untouched splendor of nature. Here you won’t find any high rise buildings, factories or bustling streets – a stark contrast from Bangkok city. This almost island-like peninsula lies within the area where where the Chao Phraya river snakes around like a horseshoe (you can actually see it in the map below). From the Bang Krachao pier, bicycles are available for rent, a perfect way to explore the small raised embankments and elevated pathways that meander around the area.
