Inner-city eco-tourism – Bang Krachao and Lat Pho Canal

When you go on vacation you always want to check out the most popular tourist attractions, especially when you travel to another country. When you visit Paris you always want to go see the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. However, I’m sure when visiting certain countries their are tourist attractions that not a lot of people are aware of. For example this article mentions how Bangkok is known for their markets and canals. However, most people don’t know about the Thai canals that lead into the city.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lao Pao Channel is breath taking. The architectural wonders are sure to capture your eye.
  • If you choose to stay the local food is delicious and there are unique nightlife opportunities.
  • Renting and riding a bike is a great way to enjoy the canal. The trails are easy to ride.

“Bang Krachao is worth visiting. This sleepy-sanctuary feels a world away from Bangkok with its high-rise modernity, endless malls and concrete canyons.”
