TL;DR – Another reason to head to the land of smiles.
As if we needed another reason to head to Singaporeans’ favourite holiday destination, we now find out there’s sakura blossoming right now in Bangkok!
While they bear an uncanny resemblance to Japan’s cherry blossoms, these are actually Tabebuia trees in full bloom.
These gorgeous blooms are best viewed at Chatuchak Park and Suan Rot Fai Park, both accessible by train via Mochit Station (BTS) or Suan Chatuchak (Chatuchak Park) Station (MRT).
How To Get There
1) Chatuchak Park
- BTS: Alight at Mochit Station
- MRT: Alight at Suan Chatuchak (Chatuchak Park) Station
2) Suan Rot Fai Park
Take either the BTS or MRT and alight at Mochit Station (BTS) or Suan Chatuchak (Chatuchak Park) Station (MRT) then hop on a motorcycle taxi or tuktuk for a quick a 10-minute ride. Otherwise, it’s a 20-minute walk (which we really wouldn’t recommend in this heat) northwest on Phahon Yothin Road through Chatuchak Park, and then crossing onto Kamphaeng Phet Road.
