Bang Krachao is made up of orchards and gardens, with only 40,000 residents. It is located just a five minute ferry ride over from the pier in bustling Klong Toey.
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. Tourists are very far and few in between out here and residents give a very warm reception to visitors.
The main feature of this area is the 100 acre Sri Nakhon Kuenkhan Park, a giant oasis of trees, lakes, and shaded pavilions located just a kilometer down from the ferry pier. The park has walking trails, bike paths, and rents out bikes, kayaks, and paddle boats at reasonable prices. There are several food vendors and drink stops interspersed throughout the park for having a picnic and enjoying the tranquil surroundings.
