Kamphaeng Phet Riverfront

Take it easy the local way

More on Kamphaeng Phet
Kamphaeng Phet has taken full advantage of a one and a half kilometre stretch of riverfront by lining it with trees, steps and benches that are great for watching the sunset.
Travelfish says:

Across Sirijit Road from the main riverfront area, the large Sirichit Park is divided into two areas outfitted with playgrounds, exercise equipment, tennis and basketball courts, and walkways suitable for a jog. Each evening around sunset, several women set up chairs along the riverfront, across the road from the northern half of Sirichit Park, to offer foot massages -- you won’t find a better way to end a tiring day.

A stone’s throw south of the southern portion of the park, just beyond the night market, a bridge leads to the riverine island of Ko Klang. Someday the small island will probably be developed into a lovely recreation area but at time of writing it’s overgrown with a few rundown gazebos where locals go fishing. On the north side of the island is a derelict Chinese temple that’s worth a peek if you’re searching for something to do.

The northern part of Sirichit Park is located across from the riverfront at the west end of Tesa 1 Soi 12. The southern part is found just north of the night market between Tesa 1 Rd and Sirijit Rd.
