TAKE A HIKE: WHERE TO GO
TREKKING IN BANGKOK

Slumber Party Hostels

Welcome to Slumber Party Hostel. We are  proud to offer the best party hostel experience for backpackers across Thailand and Indonesia. 

A bustling city like Bangkok, with its share of air pollution, heavy traffic, and crowded streets, can make you feel trapped. If you are looking for a release and a quick way out of the concrete jungle, read our list of the best hikes in Bangkok.

KHAO SAM LAN NATIONAL PARK

Tambon Nong Pla Lai, Amphoe Mueang Saraburi, Chang Wat Saraburi, Thailand

Located in Saraburi, around 1.5 hours away from Bangkok, is Khao Sam Lan National Park. This jungle paradise is filled with tree-lined hiking trails and waterfalls. Make your way to its 330-meter high peak to see the monkeys and birds that reside in this park. For just 100THB, you can have the time of your life away from the hustle and bustle of the City of Angels.

PRAPADAENG

Phra Pradaeng is a district of Samut Prakan Province in Thailand

Take a hike around Prapadaeng District to see Bangkok without the obstruction of buildings. Take the BTS to Bang Na (or the MRT to Khlong Toey) and then the ferry to Prapadaeng. Once here, you’ll have a fairly easy hike on the flat, well-paved paths of Bang Kachao. And, if you have an urge for an adventure, feel free to leave the comforts of the pavement for the muddy trails through the jungle.

KO KRET

Nonthaburi, about 12km north of central Bangkok

Just 20 minutes from the city, Ko Kret is an isolated island cut off from Bangkok by the Chao Phraya River. With the absence of cars and only one paved trail, you’ll have a tranquil walk through the 5-kilometer stretch without the fear of getting lost. After the trek, check out the settlement of the Mon people and their traditional terra cotta pottery. To get there, hop on the BTS and get off at Saphan Taksin station. Then catch the express boat with a green flag for a 20-minute ride to Ko Kret.

NAM PHA PA YAI

An hour or so from Bangkok is Nam Pha Pa Yai, a jungle paradise for adventurers looking for hills and mountains to climb and caves to explore. Bring your camping gear or rent some equipment to extend your day trip to a camping trip.  Getting a camping spot will set you back around 20THB a night. To get here, head north on the Viphavadi Rangsit freeway and take the Saraburi exit on the right-hand side.

KROK E-DOK WATERFALL

Cha-om, Kaeng Khoi, Saraburi, Thailand

With a height of 700 meters high, Krok E-Dok Waterfall is the highest in Thailand. It’s worth going through the overgrown path that surrounds this majestic sight. Be prepared for a long hike, however – this could take a while. To avoid getting lost in the woods, hire a guide to show you around.

WAT PHAI LOM

On the east bank of the Chao Phraya River lies Wat Phai Lom, an ancient temple surrounded by trees, hills, and wildlife. From the flat grass and dirt roads that surround the temple complex, the track tends to gain a bit of elevation as you wander further from the temple. As you walk around the area, keep your eyes on the ground to see the massive shells left behind by giant apple snails. Overhead, you might spot a kingfisher, pelican, or ibis. To get here, take the BTS to Saphan Taksin station and hop on a ferry with a green flag.

MUANG BORAN

A ride on the BTS to Bearing and a short cab ride to Muang Boran takes you to the spacious complex of an open-air museum. Wander pass monuments and greenery as you explore Thailand’s ancient cities.

ANY NEW TRAILS?

With a city as big as Bangkok, it is quite often that a tourist steps out of the beaten path to find a memorable spot.  Let us know if you have stumbled upon one of these isolated spots during your trip around Bangkok and comment below.
