Korat Parks and Public Gardens
« on: November 25, 2009, 03:15:19 PM »
Korat is becoming a big city with more and more people living in condos and apartments very closely next to each other with just a wall in between rather than in houses with their own gardens. Are there any "nature reserves" near the concrete desert where people can relax and meet others or do sports like jogging etc.? Not everybody does have his own individual transportation to go far for a bit of nature and peace.

Can you walk there from town.? :-[

Bung Ta Lua in front of the army base or Suan Kaew are places where you don't have to hire a private jet to get to.

Nah, you have to drive.  Bung Talua is okay, but it gets so crowded in the evenings and it's usually too hot during the day.  However, being that the weather has been so cool lately it's not too bad.  There is another smaller lake and very pretty in Nong Pai Lom.  It's kind of near Koh Chang seafood.  There is a temple that overlooks the lake.  It's not as crowded.

To get to it, go down towards white rabbit seafood, hand a right across the street where Blue Pavilion used to be.  Go straight and make a right at the first intersection and then an immediate left.  Go straight and you will see the lake.
