Sometimes spelt Bang Krajao, Bang Krachao is located in the Phra Pradaeng province. It was once the home of a small Burmese population when they first came to Thailand. On a map, you’ll recognise Bang Krachao as a horseshoe-shaped, island-like area cut off from the mainland by the Chao Phraya River. The only way to reach this green paradise is by boat or ferry. With laws against constructing buildings or commercial factories in place, Bang Krachao remains commercially undeveloped in the best way possible – preserving the culture and natural surroundings.
The locals live in traditional Thai wooden houses, cars are replaced by motorbikes and cycles, and concrete seems like a foreign thought! Locals live at a leisurely pace, showing us the most relaxing aspect of ‘island’ life. Even though Bang Krachao may seem small, there’s plenty to be explored. Just rent a cycle and pick a path! From traditional Thai temples and old houses to picturesque sceneries and fantastic wildlife, this place has something to offer every kind of traveller. Because of its proximity to Bangkok city, you can even get back to your hotel before nightfall!
