    Re: Bangkok Noi Walking Trails

    A really nice walk, Wat Rakang is a very nice less-known temple, I have visited it several times already - see my blog for some photos. Walking north you'll pass through a market, and then reach Siriraj hospital. I'm not sure if it's possible to walk along the river there, or how to see the old Thonburi railway station amidst the construction of the hospital enlargement which caused the abandonment of that railway station - last I walked that part the construction did not start yet. But also the current railway station is worth a look, not the station itself but the engines - Richard had blogged once about the locos there, sadly cannot find his post right now.

    Wat Suwannaram isn't that much interesting however - while it is hosting some historic murals I haven't seen the bot to be open. And from the outside the buildings look quite worn already. But the district museum nearby is worth a visit, though the staff usually does not speak English, all the descriptions on the wall are bilingual.

    Guess you misunderstood the map a little bit. You described the direction towards the district office Bangkok Noi, the seat of the administration. A quite boring office building. But Bangkok Noi covers a much larger area - can look at the Wikipedia article for a map.

    Re: Bangkok Noi Walking Trails

    YY, I'm curious to know if you ever got around to walking this trail.

    I didn't even know it (or is it they?) existed until I saw this thread while searching for something else. I suspect Wat Tha Phra, which I have become very curious about, is along this trail.

    Re: Bangkok Noi Walking Trails

    Hi Susana, I think my answer will be "yes" and "no"

    "Yes" because I visited some of the places at Bangkok Noi e.g. Wat Rakang, the maritum museum (for the life of me, I suddenly forgot its name) etc .

    "No" because I did a klong boat tour instead of walking, and hence did not get to all the places listed.

    You'll have to go again for part 2!

    After I wrote this I realized that Wat Tha Phra is in Bangkok Yai, but it was too late to edit my post.

    Anyway, I like the idea of a walking tour.

    Haaa, if I do get a chance to go to BKK again and with the luxury of sufficient time on hand, I will certainly love to...
